The National Marine Manufacturers Association, which produces the show, said 15,095 people attended the event, which was held last weekend. That’s a 29 percent decline in attendance from the 2010 show.

Despite the drop, exhibitors reported solid sales and leads from the four-day, in-water show, the NMMA said.
