At Trade Only Today, we’re tasked with covering the many segments of the boating industry — the innovations, brands, new products and trends, the wins and losses, as well as the people who comprise the industry, from dealers to designers to builders.

While we’ve been collectively following strict social distancing guidelines, and with much of the daily headlines focused on the impacts of the covid-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever to get away from it all.

With much of the country confined at home because of the coronavirus pandemic, Active Interest Media’s Marine Group is leveraging its robust digital engagement by producing virtual boat shows to connect boaters with dealers, manufacturers and other entities.

No one is better suited than AIM to bring boats digitally to anyone who is thinking about buying.

The Marine Group reports a 28 percent increase in engagement during the last year from the 1.5 million active boaters it reaches across its magazines, which include Anglers Journal, Outboard, PassageMaker, Power & Motoryacht, Sail, Soundings, Soundings Trade Only and Yachts International.

The Marine Group virtual boat show launches this week. For more information, contact Michele Goldsmith at mgoldsmith@aimmedia.com or (847) 373-0385.

Our hope is that the show is the next best thing to walking the docks, but from the comfort of your home.
