Wednesday is the early registration deadline for the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo, set for Nov. 17-19 at the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

The “early-bird” rate of $295 saves $80 off the standard rates.

Ten sessions are being offered throughout the three-day event. To address what the economic downturn means to today's marine dealers, organizers have secured Edward Aaron, director of equity research at RBC Capital Markets, to speak in a special session.

Aaron, who tracks the ups and downs of all leisure products, will provide insight into how economic conditions have affected the marine market and how he views the market unfolding in the coming months.

Also added, in conjunction with Marine Industry Dealership Certification, is a special session exclusively for those dealers who have been recertified/obtained continuation and are current in the program. This breakfast session, set for 8 a.m. Nov. 19, will reinforce the benefits of certification by providing all in attendance with the newly published Certified Dealer Best Practices Navigator manual.

For information or to register for the conference, contact the Marine Retailers Association of America at (708) 763-9210. To RSVP, call John Warnik at (312) 946-6500.
