MDRA conference: 'succeed in this economy'

The Marine Design Resource Alliance is holding its annual Creative Conference April 26-28 at The Cloisters in Sea Island, Ga.

The invitation-only conference is now in its 13th year.

“All of us have made reductions in staff and budget, but at some point you have to start selling again,” said Peter Granata, president of MDRA, in a statement.

“Everyone has an idea on how best to initiate that action. By bringing together dynamic speakers, CEOs and leading suppliers, attendees can watch, listen, learn and converse toward the precise understanding you need to have in order to succeed in this economy.”

Information about conference attendance is available by contacting Wayne Mapes at (847) 639-2465 and at www.mdra.biz.
