NMMA leads industry fact-finding trip in Colombia

The mission will begin Wednesday at the sold-out International Nautical Congress of Colombia in Cartagena.

A group of U.S. recreational marine businesses joined marine industry leaders in Colombia on Sunday to embark on a six-day fact-finding mission to learn firsthand about the country’s emerging boating market.

The National Marine Manufacturers Association, along with AsoNautica, ProColombia and 11 NMMA member companies, will visit Medellin, Guatape and Cartagena to explore marine industry growth areas and potential business opportunities and gather information about new development projects while networking with industry contacts and potential customers.

The mission will begin Wednesday at the sold-out International Nautical Congress of Colombia in Cartagena.

The Congress, organized by NMMA, AsoNautica, The Cartagena de Indias Convention Center and the International Council of Marine Industry Associations, will further examine growth opportunities for the boating industry through informative sessions and exhibits and conclude with a marina hop for attendees.

The NMMA will announce updates from the Congress throughout the week.
