NMMA to debut new dealer program in Miami

Dealers across the country are invited to the Miami International Boat Show for the launch of a new program called Dealer Connections, the National Marine Manufacturers Association announced.

The initiative was created to bring dealers and manufacturers together to forge new relationships and build business. Dealers will be able to meet with top decision makers from the world's leading brands and use new appointment software to schedule meetings with manufacturers.

"The Miami International Boat Show & Strictly Sail brings together key leaders from across the recreational boating industry, making it the ideal location for our new Dealer Connections program," NMMA president Thom Dammrich said in a statement. "Dealer Connections will give dealers and manufacturers a rare opportunity to create new business relationships and position themselves for growth."

Dealer Connections guests receive a VIP badge to the show that provides free admission, exclusive invitations to industry events, access to a VIP dealer hospitality lounge and special hotel packages.
