Organizers of the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo are seeking educational session proposals from potential speakers for the 2016 conference, which will take place Dec. 5-8 in Orlando, Fla.

Presentations should be directed at an audience of marine dealership professionals, from dealership principals and general managers to employees and managers working in sales, marketing, service, parts, accessories, finance and insurance, boat rentals/clubs and marina operations.

The deadline to submit a proposal is March 4.

“To create a fresh, high-impact educational lineup, first we survey the dealer community regarding the topics that matter most to them, then we seek out the leading experts on those topics,” Marine Retailers Association of the Americas vice president Liz Walz said in a statement.

The MRAA co-hosts the annual conference with Boating Industry magazine.

Conference organizers are looking for presentations on advanced, intermediate and fundamental business topics. The information to be presented should be timely, informative and educational — offering concrete takeaways the audience can bring back to their business to accelerate future success.

“Whether presenters are from inside or outside the industry, whether they’re a marine retailing coach, a professional speaker or a dealer, MDCE focuses on education that delivers results for attendees,” Boating Industry magazine editor-in-chief Jonathan Sweet said.
