Registration opens for American Boating Congress

Publish date:

Online registration is open for the 2010 American Boating Congress, which runs May 5-6.

Organized by the National Marine Manufacturers Association, ABC is the recreational boating industry's premier legislative conference, bringing industry leaders to Washington, D.C., to help formulate public policy and present a unified front on issues that impact marine businesses.

For the first time, attendees can take advantage of a discounted "early bird" conference registration rate of $130 if they register before March 31. The "regular" registration rate will be $160 for those who register between April 1 and April 19.

Both the hotel block and online conference registration will close April 19.

Similar to ABC 2009, this year's conference schedule will be streamlined to one full day of sessions on May 6, with supplemental meetings on the previous day.

This year ABC 2010 will also be hosted at the Liaison Capitol Hill hotel. The hotel is within walking distance of the NMMA offices, Union Station and the U.S. Capitol.
