“We’ll have some experts from the Department of Commerce explaining top markets and how to break into those markets if businesses are not there already,” Jim Currie, legislative director for the NMMA, told Soundings Trade Only.

The webinar is part of a partnership between the NMMA and the International Trade Administration designed to help NMMA members expand sales into new markets.

The free webinar will provide an overview of the top export markets for boats and marine accessories to help owners learn more about what these opportunities mean for them and their business.
