The Marine Dealer Conference & Expo, set for Nov, 6-9 in Orlando, Fla., is offering first-time dealer attendees a registration fee of $299, which is $150 off the regular rate.

The rate, good through June 30, is available only for dealer personnel who haven’t attended the conference in the last three years.

“The dealers who have attended this event over the last few years have clearly seen the benefit,” Boating Industry publisher Matt Gruhn said in a statement. “We’re offering this incredible rate to demonstrate to those dealers who have yet to attend this revamped event that they, too, will realize an incredible return on their investment.”

The magazine produces the dealer conference in conjunction with the Marine Retailers Association of America.

The educational agenda will feature 22 sessions in three tracks: Sales and Marketing, Powering Profits and Service and Marina.

The event, which will be held for the first time at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center, also will offer its largest exhibit hall to date. There will be more than 140,000 square feet of space.
