NMRA offers free consultations at IBEX

The National Marine Representatives Association said it will host free “Ask A Rep” consultations during the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition & Conference in September.

"Our first ‘Ask A Rep’ sessions were last year, and we've received such positive feedback and were so satisfied with the experience we've decided to do it again this year," NMRA president Kathy Munzinger said in a statement.

As was the case last year, NMRA members specializing in OEM and aftermarket industry segments will be available for individual discussions and to answer general questions. The sessions are designed to help accessory or component makers who want to learn more about the value of independent reps in the sales chain in a face-to-face, non-sales-oriented setting.

The sessions will be held during all three days of IBEX, Sept. 17-19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the NMRA booth, 751, at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.
