NMRA will hold raffle at IBEX

The National Marine Representatives Association is hosting a free drink raffle to help promote Rep Night at the International Boatbuilders' Exhibition & Conference in Louisville, Ky.

Show visitors can stop at the NMRA booth, No. 751, at the Kentucky Exposition Center before 3 p.m. on Sept. 17 and drop off a business card for entry. Five winners will be randomly selected to join the invitation-only event and receive two free drinks.

The lucky recipients will be contacted via phone before the show closes that day and can pick up their prize at Rep Night. The event takes place that evening from 6-8:30 p.m. at Sully's, 434 S. 4th St., in Louisville. IBEX runs from Sept. 17-19.

Sponsored by NMRA member rep groups, the networking event is open only to the association's member representatives and affiliates.

"Rep Night is a good way for us to reach out to the industry," NMRA president Kathy Munzinger said in a statement. "Its continued success shows the power of this networking event sponsored by independent reps."

The NMRA was founded in 1960 as a national organization serving independent marine sales representatives and the manufacturers who sell through them. The association functions as an industry voice, promoting networking and the benefits of using reps for sales.
