The National Marine Manufacturers Association said it moved its engineering compliance and CE seminars from the Sheraton Nashville to the Renaissance Nashville Hotel in Tennessee.

The NMMA said it made the change because of unplanned construction at the Sheraton Nashville at the time of the seminars. People who have made hotel reservations will receive notice from the NMMA of the Sheraton’s deposit refund and confirmation of the reservation transfer to the Renaissance.

Attendees who have not yet made hotel arrangements can find registration information here. The NMMA said the room block has been extended until Nov. 10.

The engineering compliance seminar will be held Nov. 28-30 and the CE seminar will follow on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.

The seminars will provide technical training on the industry standards and regulations for boats sold in the United States and the European Union, according to the NMMA.

The NMMA said compliance seminar attendees will receive a copy of the recently published American Boat & Yacht Council standards with their registration and have a chance to discuss technical issues with industry experts.
