NMRA offers membership discount during IBEX

The National Marine Representatives Association said it is offering special IBEX show pricing for new members.

The trade group said manufacturers that join the organization at the affiliate level during IBEX will receive a 50 percent discount on the first year's membership. The NMRA's booth at the show is No. 2000.

IBEX is scheduled for Sept. 19-21 at the Tampa (Fla.) Convention Center.

NMRA affiliate member benefits include access to the membership directory, sample contracts and personal networking with member marine rep groups.

For component and accessory manufacturers unfamiliar with selling through independent marine reps, the NMRA is hosting educational sessions throughout the show.

At the NMRA’s booth, Ask A Rep sessions are an opportunity to talk one on one with a working marine rep in OEM and aftermarket sales. Walk-ins are welcome between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Sept. 19 and 20. Appointments can be made through info@nmraonline.org.

NMRA Ambassadors are exhibitors that use reps. 3M Marine (booth 1133), JMP Marine (booth 1553), Todd Marine Products (booth 433) and Turning Point Propellers (booth 500) will have ambassadors to answer questions.
