New Jersey show reports strong turnout

The Marine Trades Association of New Jersey is touting the success of its new show, the New Jersey Boat Sales & Expo, which took place Feb. 23-26.

More than 200 boats were on display at the inaugural event, which drew 6,924 adults, plus those 16 and younger that were admitted free.

“Exhibitor feedback indicates a high number of quality leads and boats sold. Our attendees were very pleased with the variety of boats and products, along with the low cost to attend the event. The show was a win-win for everyone,” MTA/NJ executive director Melissa Danko said in a statement.

Exhibitors said they were pleasantly surprised by the attendance at the show, the buying attitude of the attendees and the number of boats sold.

“Overall I found the organization of the show great. The advertising worked, and the attendees were serious buyers,” Tony Cappello, of Katz Marina at the Cove, said in a statement.

The next MTA/NJ boat show is the Jersey Shore Boat Sale & Expo, which will be held Sept. 21-23 at FirstEnergy Park. The New Jersey Boat Sale & Expo will return Feb. 21-24, 2013 to the N.J. Convention & Exposition Center.
