NMMA sees new emerging markets for boatbuilders

The National Marine Manufacturers Association is touting three emerging markets as potential areas of export for boatbuilders.

The group is offering members a chance to visit and exhibit at several shows at a discount.

The NMMA is working closely with organizers of the new International Boat Show and Festival scheduled for Oct. 17-20 in Sanya, Hainan, China. The group is also spearheading a U.S. pavilion March 22-24, 2014, at the Cartagena Boat Show in Colombia.

And because the Korean government has loosened regulations on marine recreational activities and yacht use — now actively supporting growth of a recreational boating industry — the NMMA plans to return with an even larger North American presence June 12-15, 2014, at the Korea International Boat Show in Seoul, South Korea.

The group is also still supporting a U.S. presence in mature markets, offering members a chance to exhibit Nov. 19-21 at the Marine Equipment Trade Show in Amsterdam; Oct. 2-6 at the 52nd Genoa Boat Show in Italy; and May 22-25, 2014, at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show in Queensland, Australia.
