Registration is open for the 2020 American Boating Congress. The National Marine Manufacturers Association encourages industry stakeholders to register now to take advantage of discounts.

ABC, the boating industry’s annual advocacy summit in Washington, D.C., will be held May 12-14. It takes place for the first time at the InterContinental, located at The Waterfront, a mile-long stretch of waterfront property on the Potomac River.

ABC provides attendees opportunities to meet with elected officials, take part in workshops and seminars, and discuss with policymakers issues that impact recreational boating. The NMMA said the event strengthens relationships with lawmakers.
