Raymarine seminars draw sellouts

Raymarine, a leader in marine electronics, says its 2008 Seminar Series, which began in early April, has sold out at the six locations it has visited, with two more stops coming this fall.

The Seminar Series is designed for owners of Raymarine's C-Series and E-Series Multifunction Displays, offering them tips and techniques for optimally using their onboard systems.

Led by Raymarine product experts, each seminar is limited to 30 attendees and includes interaction with actual multifunction displays, providing a personalized and hands-on learning experience.

"While all of our electronics are easy to learn and use, our multifunction displays are highly sophisticated pieces of equipment that offer many levels of features and functionality," said Dave Bimschleger, president of Raymarine, in a statement. "Through the seminar series, we hope to enable our customers to fully utilize their onboard electronics, ultimately resulting in a better on-the-water experience."

The seminars run from 9 a.m. to 3:30 pm and attendees receive a complimentary lunch, a Raymarine shirt and hat, and a chance to win an assortment of Raymarine products.

The seminar will be held Nov. 8 and 9 in Fort Lauderdale, and Nov. 15 in Fort Meyers, Fla.
