Distributor’s show draws crowds in New Jersey

More than 900 Marine Equipment & Supply Co. and Seacoast Distributors dealer personnel attended the 48th annual Dealer Trade Show Nov. 2-3 at the Atlantic City Convention Center in New Jersey.

More than 250 manufacturers were represented and five new product lines were introduced.

“The MESCO show is the largest, longest-running event of its kind in the region. Our dealers recognize and utilize the value of our show,” MESCO vice president of sales and marketing Jim Del Cioppo said in a statement.

“Following a challenging 2011 season, dealers’ attitudes were cautious, but positive for the upcoming season,” he added. “There is no other event in the region that can offer the combination of benefits to the marine dealer that the MESCO/Seacoast show does.”
