MRAA Calls for Dealer Week Exhibitors

The association is accepting exhibitor applications for its annual conference, which is being held in Austin, Texas.

The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas will hold its annual Dealer Week Conference and Expo in Austin, Texas, Dec. 5-8.

MRAA is accepting exhibit applications for this year’s conference, which will commemorate the association’s 50th anniversary and mark its return to Texas, where MRAA was founded.

“Last year we didn’t know what to expect with a return to an in-person event, but dealers and our industry partners were excited to reconnect and showed up in a big way,” Allison Gruhn, MRAA vice president of business development, said in a statement. “This year I’m not hearing any hesitation — the people I’ve spoken to are asking to commit to their space at the show now.”

Last year, Dealer Week drew more than 1,000 attendees and 100 exhibitors. This year’s event will be held at the Austin Convention Center.
