The National Marine Representatives Association will present the seminar "Reach New Customers and Boost Sales with Independent Reps” during the Oct. 4-6 International BoatBuilders' Exposition & Conference in Tampa, Fla.

Tim Luehmann, president of S.M. Osgood Co. and a past NMRA president, will explain how independent marine reps work, the crucial role they play in the industry's sales chain and the advantages of using them. The NMRA said he will showcase how reps provide a cost-effective and powerful way to build a customer base and increase sales.

Attendees will learn how boatbuilders, manufacturers, distributors and dealers benefit from the relationships they establish and maintain — and how to cash in on them.

The seminar will be held from 10:30 to 11 a.m. on Oct. 5 in the Tech Talk Theater.
