Entrants to the 2020 program will have a chance to win an award, and according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association, participating can boost the exhibitor’s visibility during the event through inclusion in the show guide, booth signage, product exposure to marine journalists and additional representation in the new Innovation Way section of the show.

The awards program is available to contracted Minneapolis Boat Show exhibitors who meet the rules. Deadline for entries is December 20.
