NMEA announces dates for 2010 show

The National Marine Electronics Association's 2010 International Marine Electronics Conference & Expo is set for Sept. 29-Oct. 2 at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel.

"We are working through a very difficult marine industry economy since late 2008," said David Hayden, NMEA president and executive director, in a statement. "However, the market is slowly recovering and should present an upside in late 2010 and continuing into 2011. The NMEA International Marine Electronics Conference & Expo this year will help everyone who attends to be more successful in navigating tough waters and making your business successful as the market improves."

The name of the event has also been updated, Hayden said, to better reflect the NMEA's involvement in the worldwide marketplace. One of NMEA's areas of growth has been from the international arena, with manufacturers, dealers and the trade.

"We have a great program of training and technical seminars prepared for NMEA members, their technical personnel and others," Hayden said. "The convention offers many opportunities for networking with manufacturers and with peer dealers."

Participants will have an opportunity to see new 2011 product rollouts from manufacturers during the expo.
