Sail America sets dates for 2015 conference

Sail America will host its typically biennial Industry Conference on June 22-24, 2015, in order to start offering the conference during odd-numbered years.

The event will have run two years consecutively before returning to its normal biennial schedule again in 2017. The event is geared to sailing industry professionals, and it will take place at the Hyatt Regency in Newport, R.I.

The most recent industry conference was held this year in June.

"We have listened to our membership and are moving the Sail America Industry Conference to better accommodate their needs," Sail America association manager Peter Durant said in a statement. "By moving the conference, we can support our members and other industry organizations. This makes it easier for sailing professionals to attend all industry events."

Seminars at the 2015 conference will focus on ways to improve business and increase revenue, as well as sailing industry trends and news.
