“Attendees were very pleased with the new format of the NMEA Conference & Expo in 2012 [held in Orlando],” NMEA executive director Bruce Angus said in a statement. “The atmosphere was very positive, with a ramped-up energy level for the entire event, and we expect that 2013 will be even better.”

“We’ve changed everything about the conference to make certain that the dealers and technical members are able to participate in the training and educational experience that they want and need,” convention committee chairman Brad Good said.

The NMEA also said there is limited booth space available.
