The Rhode Island Marine Trades Association has partnered with a new producer to continue growing the Providence Boat Show.

RIMTA said Marketing & Events, based in Newport, brings a track record of producing trade shows, festivals and boating events that stretches back 30 years.

M&E founder David Rosenberg began his career in event management at the Newport Yachting Center and coordinated boating rendezvous, fishing tournaments and other boating events before establishing his own company.

The company produces events that include the 10-day Newport Winter Festival, the Black Ships Festival and the New England Regional Turfgrass Conference and Show held at the Rhode Island Convention Center.

RIMTA will remain the owner of the Providence show and will work closely with M&E to help drive the direction of the show and further enhance the event's value to the industry.

Exhibitors will hear from M&E soon to start booking space for this winter's show. The 2018 show will be held Feb. 2-4 at the Rhode Island Convention Center.

"We have found the right partner to take the Providence Boat Show to the next level, and we are looking forward to seeing the show mature with the new energy and longtime expertise that M&E now brings to the event," RIMTA CEO Wendy Mackie said in a recent RIMTA newsletter.
