The National Marine Manufacturers Association said registration is open for the USA Pavilion at the Colombia Nautica International Boat Show.

The NMMA said the show, set for April 27-30 next year in Cartagena de Indias, will feature the largest selection of boats, boating accessories and products in the region and is an ideal platform for identifying consumer and business-to-business trade opportunities in Colombia and throughout Latin America.

The NMMA said it is taking the lead in organizing the USA Pavilion, with premium stand location and preferred member turnkey pricing.

Space is limited and is expected to sell out, the NMMA said.
