West Marine announced its seventh New Product Review Day will be held on Jan. 20 at the company's support center in Watsonville, Calif.

The event allows inventors and other prospective vendors to pitch new products to West Marine category managers for consideration and the chance to have the goods sold in West Marine retail stores and through its other channels.

“West Marine is continually on the lookout for the latest in high-quality boating, fishing, sailing equipment and gear,” executive vice president of merchandising Ron Japinga said in a statement. “Our New Product Review Day presents a unique opportunity for vendors and inventors to meet personally with West Marine. We always look forward to this event and are eager to add new products to our assortments.”

To schedule an appointment to attend or demonstrate products during the event, e-mail West Marine at vendorinfo@westmarine.com.
