The National Marine Manufacturers Association released a video recap of the Progressive Insurance Los Angeles Boat Show, which took place Feb. 7-10 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
“Things are finally turning around and we want to bring the industry out here together to accelerate the momentum,” NMMA president Thom Dammrich said in the video.
The Progressive Insurance Los Angeles Boat Show, one of the NMMA’s newest additions and part of the Southern California Marine Association integration, reported a 64 percent increase in attendance, compared with 2012.

The four-day show, which added an in-water yacht and brokerage location in Marina del Rey, attracted 11,785 people.
“Initial feedback from exhibitors is similar to what organizers across the country have been hearing in 2013: Many boats were sold in all categories and solid leads generated,” NMMA spokeswoman Sarah Ryser told Trade Only Today.
