MarineMax Inc. has pledged full support for Dealer Week, the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas’ new annual conference slated for Dec. 8-11 in Tampa, Fla.

The boat retailer is bringing its largest ever leadership group to the conference.

“Dealer Week was created to deliver opportunities for us as dealers,” said MarineMax president and CEO Brett McGill in a statement. “We’re committing at such a high level to this event because of the incredible value of the educational programming that MRAA offers as well as the fact that we know our investment in Dealer Week and the MRAA will get reinvested into making our industry even stronger. We’re looking forward to helping make this event and incredible success.”

As a longtime MRAA Retail Member, MarineMax has achieved Marine Industry Certified Dealership status at all of its retail locations.

“MarineMax is a leader in this industry, and we’re so grateful that they’ve taken a leadership role on an issue that we think is critical for all of us, namely the importance of continuous education and improvement to make our dealer body as strong as it can possibly be,” said MRAA president Matt Gruhn. “We believe Dealer Week is going to help drive marine retail toward increasing excellence, and it’s extremely gratifying to hear that MarineMax feels the same way.”
