NMMA cancels 2010 Liberty Boat Show


The Liberty Boat Show will not take place this year because of the economic climate, the National Marine Manufacturers Association said.

The show had been set for April 29-May 2 at Liberty State Park Landing Marina in New Jersey.

The NMMA purchased the show in May 2008, but did not hold the show that year because of the poor economy. At the time, the association said it would run the show in October 2009, but again put the event on hold because of marketplace conditions.

The Liberty Boat Show had been in place for about six years before being acquired by the NMMA.
