Registration opens for American Boating Congress


Registration opened for the 2014 American Boating Congress, which will be held May 5-7 in Washington, D.C.

Each year, the National Marine Manufacturers Association reaches out to members and industry stakeholders, urging them to represent the interests of the recreational boating industry at more than 250 meetings on Capitol Hill.

The Association of Marina Industries, the American Boat Builders & Repairers Association, BoatUS, the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas, the National Marine Lenders Association, Sail America and Soundings Trade Only were among 27 co-sponsors of last year’s event.

The NMMA opened registration, offering an early bird discount of $250, and posted a schedule of events for the 2014 meeting.
