In an effort to support its marine trade association members and send a few of their members to the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo at no cost, the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas is offering three MTAs the chance to conduct a giveaway for one free MDCE registration apiece.

The free registration, worth $499, will be for MDCE 2015, which will be held Nov. 15-18 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

"MDCE has the unique ability to fulfill dealers’ desire to be the best through education and networking opportunities that help dealers find greater success in the year ahead,” MRAA membership coordinator Hannah Muerhoff said in a statement. "What makes this opportunity so special is that the partnership with our MTA members allows dealers to attend the conference free of charge, giving them access to the conference that they might not otherwise have had.”

This is the second year that the MRAA partnered with its MTA members in the free-giveaway campaign.
