Progressive continues partnership with NMMA shows

The Progressive Group of Insurance Companies will extend through 2022 its title sponsorship of the National Marine Manufacturers Association’s 18 boat and sport shows.

“We are proud to partner with Progressive Insurance and welcome them as the title sponsor of NMMA boat and sport shows for another five years,” NMMA executive vice president Ben Wold said in a statement. “Our involvement with this great organization has already helped elevate our show experience, while helping us provide engaging boating education programs to thousands of show attendees each year.”

Progressive launched the Progressive Boat Club for the 2018 show season. The program offered boater education from the Annapolis School of Seamanship and a new Oculus-Rift virtual reality experience that put attendees at the helm in a simulated race.

“We’re excited about continuing our partnership with NMMA and bringing attendees a new, interactive experience that promotes boater education, safety and fun,” said Eric Doubler, recreational vehicle business leader for Progressive.
