The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas will hold next year’s Dealer Week at the Austin Convention Center in Texas. The dates for the conference are Dec. 8-11.

“The MRAA has many members in the western half of the U.S. — and in Texas itself — and we hope that by hosting Dealer Week in the Lone Star State, we can expose new dealerships to the educational goals the conference provides,” MRAA president Matt Gruhn said in a statement.

The convention center and adjacent host hotel, The Fairmont, are located in downtown Austin and are within walking distance of popular attractions.
