Head of RBFF to speak at dealer conference

Frank Peterson, president and CEO of the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation, will speak at the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo, set for Sunday though Wednesday in Orlando, Fla.

Peterson will present new research to help the industry better understand consumer attitudes toward boat purchases.

"The boating lifestyle has not waned. People are going to continue to buy boats, but are certainly doing their research for the best value," Peterson said in a statement. "We hope our boating stakeholders will use this research to help guide their sales and marketing strategies for the coming year."

Staff will be available during the expo to update attendees about the foundation's Take Me Fishing campaign and how it affects the boating industry by growing participation where boating and fishing come together.
