Trade registration open for NMMA shows

The NMMA said trade registration — exclusive access to NMMA’s 19 boat and sportshows — is now open.

The National Marine Manufacturers Association said trade registration — exclusive access to NMMA’s 19 boat and sportshows — is now open.

The NMMA said trade badges grant the same access as exhibitors for any NMMA boat or sportshow, allowing entry to the show two hours before it opens each day.

Trade registration is free for NMMA members who register before Nov. 15. After that date the price is $35. Non-members have until Nov. 15 to get the early-bird discount price of $35. Afterward the price goes up to $40.

The NMMA said the badges have been redesigned this year to include the registrant’s name on both sides of the badge.

To enhance show security, anyone using a trade or exhibitor badge to access the show site will be required to present government-issued identification along with the badge, the NMMA said.
