The National Marine Distributors Association signed on to provide educational funding support for the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo for the second year in a row.

“It’s no coincidence that the MDCE educational content received the highest ratings in the history of the event in 2012, which was the first year NMDA pledged its support,” Liz Walz, director of membership and education for the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas, said in a statement.

The MRAA co-produces the event annually with Boating Industry magazine. It will be held Nov. 17-20 in Orlando, Fla.

"Thanks to another year of support from NMDA we made substantial additional investments in MDCE’s education, which will allow dealers to take away more from this conference to improve and grow their businesses than ever before,” Walz added.

“The National Marine Distributors Association believes in the power of education to drive industry growth and improvement,” NMDA executive director Nancy Cueroni said in a statement. “Our members are committed to supporting the success of the marine dealer community, and the NMDA’s sponsorship of the MDCE educational program is one of many ways we demonstrate that commitment.”
