The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas is kicking off registration for the 2013 Marine Dealer Conference & Expo with a promotion that will last through April.

Dealers who register during April receive an extra $25 discount on top of the standard $50 early bird discount off the full registration rate of $499. MRAA members receive an additional $75 off their registration for a total April discount of $150, which will allow them to register at the same rate as the 2012 MDCE.

"With this promotion, we wanted to thank our many loyal attendees while also incentivizing newcomers to give the event a try,” said Jonathan Sweet, editor in chief of Boating Industry magazine, which co-sponsors the event. “I guarantee that the value they take away from the event will far exceed their investment.”

"This year, we are investing in providing dealers with a phenomenal educational experience beyond what they have encountered in this industry before,” MRAA president Matt Gruhn said in a statement. “To offer such high-quality content, we have more than doubled our speaker budget, allowing us to deliver new insights and strategies that attendees can use to create a powerful advantage for their business in the marketplace.”

The Marine Dealer Conference & Expo will be held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., Nov. 17-20. This year’s host hotel will be the Rosen Plaza, which is adjacent to the convention center.
