In addition to the Green Product of the Year, West Marine will feature its top picks for the most innovative new products for 2013. Show attendees also can enter to win a $1,000 gift card at the West Marine booth, the company announced.
“We’re very excited about West Marine’s Hot Picks for 2013,” product information vice president Chuck Hawley said in a statement. “The goal, as always, is to find products that make boating safer, more enjoyable or more economical, combined with that ‘got to have it’ factor. Our suppliers have done a superb job of identifying boater needs and responding to them with innovative, exciting products.”
