West Marine said it will hold a New Product Review Day on March 20.

The event allows prospective inventors and vendors to pitch new products to West Marine category managers for consideration to be sold in the company’s retail stores and at westmarine.com.

"New Product Review Day is a fun way for us to see creative innovations in boating, fishing, paddling and sailing gear," CEO Matt Hyde said in a statement. "Our category managers get introduced to new companies and new products, and some end up being added to our product line."

The company said all inventors and vendors that want to attend the event must schedule an appointment. To submit a product and request an appointment, email the West Marine new product team at vendorinfo@westmarine.com for an application that contains additional information and guidelines.

The deadline for submitting an application is March 9; successful applications will be given appointments by March 13.

The next New Product Review Day will be held in late September.
