Early registration deadline nears for dealer conference

The early bird registration rate for the 2012 Marine Dealer Conference & Expo will expire in one week.

“We are on target with our registration goals and we’re moving into the last week before the early bird rate expires, so we’ll get a push next week,” Marine Retailers Association of the Americas Matt Gruhn told Soundings Trade Only.

The rate for the conference, which will be held Nov. 11-14 in Tampa, Fla., is $349 for MRAA members and $399 for all other registrants through Sept. 14. After that time, the standard registration rate will be $449.

“I think this is going to be the best one we’ve ever done,” Gruhn told Trade Only. “It’s changed and we’ve brought in a bunch of speakers who’ve never spoken before and brought back some speakers who rated very highly with attendees.”
