The Marine Equipment & Supply Co. of Thorofare, N.J., and Seacoast Distributors of Lindenhurst, N.Y., recently held the 46th annual Dealer Trade Show.

More than 800 MESCO and Seacoast dealer personnel attended the two-day accessories showcase Nov. 11-12 at the Atlantic City Convention Center and more than 250 manufacturers were represented at the show. Nine new product lines were also introduced.

"Customers enjoy our location," said Jim Del Cioppo, vice president of sales and marketing for MESCO, in a statement. "The convention center is one of the top facilities on the East Coast and Atlantic City's news attractions provide plenty to see and do."

Dealers from Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia attended and the mood was positive and upbeat and show attendance was up despite a heavy storm on the second day, according to organizers.
