Marine Dealer Conference & Expo producers said the 2015 event had growth of more than 4 percent in retail attendance, a 21 percent jump in pre-conference workshop registrations and a sold-out expo hall with more than 100 exhibitors.

A total of 1,147 marine industry professionals from North America and as far away as Australia traveled to Orlando, Fla., in November for the conference, which is co-produced by Boating Industry magazine and the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas.

The turnout compares with the 1,130 industry professionals who attended in 2014.

“We introduced several new offerings for 2015 to increase the value of the event for all who participated,” MRAA vice president Liz Walz said in a statement. “The numbers and the feedback we received during the show suggest that both dealers and exhibitors felt the positive impact of those changes.”
