Safe Harbor Marinas held its first managers meeting in February in Fort Worth, Texas.

The meeting, which is intended to be an annual event, brought together Safe Harbor’s corporate leadership and the general managers of its 31 properties to collaborate, discuss industry trends and plan for the coming year.

Officially launched in January, Safe Harbor Marinas said it is the nation’s largest owner and operator of marinas.

The event’s keynote speaker was National Marine Manufacturers Association president Thom Dammrich. Along with his 35 years of experience in the recreational boating industry, Dammrich has led the Discover Boating campaign, a public awareness effort dedicated to increasing interest in recreational boating.

Dammrich spoke to an audience of about 60 Safe Harbor employees about key industry trends, including an expected increase in sales across nearly all boat categories in 2016.

“As a new company, this was the perfect opportunity for Safe Harbor executives to not only meet with our managers, but also introduce the brand, discuss best practices, and lay out our exciting plans for the future,” Safe Harbor Marinas CEO Marshall Funk said in a statement.

“In addition, having Thom Dammrich share his insights and talk about the initiatives NMMA has planned to help the industry continue to grow provided significant value to both our executive and management teams.”
