The National Marine Manufacturers Association, producers of the Marine Accessories Pavilion at the upcoming International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades, better known as ICAST, will host an “Anchors & Ales” networking event on July 14.

It will take place from 4:30 to 6 p.m. ICAST runs from July 12-15 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

Orlando Brewing will be at the pavilion, offering four craft beers for sampling. Those who attend will receive a keepsake tasting glass and learn more about the selection of beers from brewery representatives while networking with colleagues.

The tasting is open to all badged conferees and pavilion exhibitors while the supplies last.

“Networking is key to a successful show experience, and this is particularly critical at ICAST,” NMMA vice president of consumer and trade events Jennifer Thompson said in a statement.

“We’re excited to provide this valuable opportunity to our members and their customers, which will further highlight the importance of boating accessories to the world’s largest recreational fishing trade show.”
