Dates set for Sail America’s conference

Publish date:

The sailing industry’s trade association, Sail America, announced the dates for the eighth edition of the Sail America Industry Conference.

Now held every year, versus every other as it was prior to last year’s event, SAIC will host speakers, workshops and industry leaders and colleagues for the three-day conference set for May 12-14 in Annapolis.

More than 150 participants are expected to attend the event focused on trends in the sailing industry. The conference features a regatta, a day and a half of educational sessions, and networking events.

“At our most recent SAIC, held in Horseshoe Bay, Texas, a broad cross section of the sailing industry came together and found once again that there is great value in getting to know partners and competitors better in a relaxed and informative setting,” said Sail America president Mark Pillsbury in a statement. “As a result, Sail America's board of directors voted overwhelmingly to make the industry conference an annual affair, giving participants a consistent place to share ideas"
