Has the pandemic changed the marine industry forever, or is the boat-buying frenzy a temporary reaction? The National Marine Manufacturers Association is asking stakeholders to gauge the short- and long-term effects of the pandemic.
In an effort to provide comprehensive data in real time, the NMMA is asking dealers, manufacturers, marina operators and service providers to take a survey to determine how business has changed during the past three months, and how they believe it will continue to change.
The anonymous, multiple-choice questionnaire asks businesses about such topics as whether they’re open, how they’re functioning, what standards have been put in place, employees (layoffs, furloughs, hiring), pricing and costs, and profit loss or gain projections.
NMMA has also been surveying member CEOs to get a clearer picture of the marine manufacturing landscape, and it hopes to combine its findings into a comprehensive snapshot of where the industry stands.
Trade Only Today is partnering with NMMA to help distribute the survey, as well as provide coverage of the report that the association will issue.
