The annual event allows inventors and vendors to pitch new products to West Marine category managers for consideration and the chance to have them sold in West Marine retail stores and through its other channels of business, including www.westmarine.com.

“West Marine is always on the lookout for innovative products to maximize our customer’s enjoyment of boating, fishing, sailing or paddling,” executive vice president 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 category managers. We always look forward to this event and are excited to see great new boating and fishing products for our customers.”
