More than a dozen editors from Active Interest Media’s Marine Group met virtually on Monday with thought leaders from the world’s leading marine companies.
The journalists spent the information-filled day hearing about 2022 plans and new products in the pipeline from major, stateside companies as well as marine-industry leaders from Canada, Finland, France, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, Taiwan, Turkey and the U.K.
Participating companies included: ACR Electronics, AkzoNobel, Apollonian Yachts, Aspen Power Catamarans, Azimut-Benetti Group, Back Cove Yachts, Beneteau, CMC Marine, Cutwater Boats, Fraser, Garmin, Horizon Yachts, Life Proof Boats, MarineMax, Maverick Boat Group, Navico, Ranger Tugs, Raymarine, Sabre Yachts, Saxdor Yachts, Sirena Yachts, Sunseeker, Suzuki, Tankoa Yachts and Vicem Yachts.
“It was fantastic to meet one-on-one, virtually, with so many marine companies in one day, away from the boat-show bustle or in a convention-hall conference room,” said Soundings Trade Only editor-in-chief Jeff Moser. “Our editors were able to have productive conversations without distractions and learn about new products and business development.”
Soundings Trade Only is part of the AIM Marine Group, along with Anglers Journal, PassageMaker, Power & Motoryacht, Sail, Soundings and Yachts International.
