The National Marine Representatives Association is hosting multiple events during the International BoatBuilders' Exhibition & Conference to educate industry members about the role independent sales reps can play in a business.

IBEX will be held from Sept. 29 to Oct. 2 at the Tampa (Fla.) Convention Center.

Free "Ask A Rep" sessions and workshops will be offered on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Held at NMRA's booth, No. 2000, the brief one-on-one consultations are designed for component or accessory manufacturers that are new to the industry or those who wish to learn about the value of reps in the sales chain, the group said.

NMRA members with a lifetime of experience in the OEM and aftermarket industry segments will be offering their expertise for individual discussions and to answer general questions. Walk-ins are welcome and appointments can be made throughinfo@nmraonline.org.

The organization is also hosting a free workshop, “Independent Sales Reps — What Your Business Is Missing,” from 3:30 to 4 p.m. on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, and from 1:30 to 2 p.m. on Oct. 2 in the West Hall between the 200 and 300 aisles. Participants will learn how reps benefit manufacturers in boatbuilder, distributor, dealer and other sales channels. Guidelines about how reps work and on establishing beneficial relationships also will be discussed.

The NMRA is also hosting Rep Night from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 1 at the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina. The networking event is invitation-only and sponsored by NMRA member rep groups.
