The 2011 Marine Dealer Conference and Expo will take place at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center hotel in Orlando, FL from November 6 to 9 inclusive.
Organized by the Marine Retailers Association of America (MRAA) and Boating Industry magazine, the conference drew approximately 1,000 attendees in 2010, including many Canadian dealers. The event features a variety of seminars designed for dealership service, sales and management personnel as well as a trade show that included 115 exhibitors last year.
Another event highlight is the Top 100 Dealer ranking determined by a Leadership Alliance formed by Affinity Media in Ventura, CA. Last year, 14 Canadian dealers were recognized.
