Haimes Coleman offers tech tour at IBEX

The Haimes Coleman Group is inviting marine dealers to participate in the Marine Dealer Tech Tour at the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition & Conference Sept. 19-21 in Tampa, Fla.

“We also understand that a knowledgeable staff is the key to increased sales and increased profits,” the company said.

“Sending your dealership’s lead service or store personnel could generate big dividends,” the company said. “Having your dealership exposed to the latest equipment, materials and techniques could lead to better customer service and increased profits.”
