AIM Announces Connecticut Fall Boat Show


Active Interest Media, parent of Soundings Trade Only, will present the inaugural Connecticut Fall Boat Show on Oct. 7-9 in Branford, Conn. The three-day event at Safe Harbor Bruce & Johnsons Marina is centrally located off Long Island Sound.

The show will feature new and brokerage powerboats and sailboats along with the latest in marine gear and services.

“All economic indicators are pointing to an increase in inventory come this fall, which gives us an excellent opportunity to introduce our active audience to their potential next boat and to a top-notch marina and boating area,” AIM Marine Group president Gary DeSanctis said in a statement.
