The Marine Tech Tour hosted 182 dealers from Florida at its two-day training event at the Hutchinson Island Marriott in Stuart, Fla.

Suppliers such as Fusion Entertainment, Turning Point Propellers, Johnson Outdoors and Uflex USA provided technical seminars and on-water demonstrations. Dealers could meet one-on-one with more than 20 major suppliers to look at new products for 2018 and ways to improve installations and applications.

The keynote speaker was sponsored by Gold Eagle and addressed how the independent dealer can generate more revenue through accessory sales and service-shop efficiencies.

MTT’s mission is to provide dealers with events that help them increase product knowledge and technical expertise. The tour is owned and operated by the Haimes Coleman Group. For more information, check out
