MDCE 2012 Dates, Location Announced

The 2012 Marine Dealer Conference & Expo will be held from November 11 to 14 inclusive at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

"The MDCE's success is based largely on its ability to deliver educational content that attendees can use to advance their business and increase their bottom line,' explained Liz Walz, editor-in-chief of Boating Industry, which co-produces the MDCE with the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas. "We are committed to offering a can't miss agenda that will provide new strategies dealers can use to produce real results in today's market.'

In 2012, the MDCE expo hall will be the largest in the event's history at more than 150,000 square feet. As part of this new, larger floor plan, organizers will improve upon one of the most popular features of last year's event, the modular classrooms that created better traffic flow throughout the expo hall and brought dealers and suppliers together for unprecedented networking opportunities.

This year's host hotels will be the newly renovated Rosen Plaza Hotel and the Rosen Centre. Both hotels are conveniently located adjacent to the Orange County Convention Center, at the center of Orlando's theme parks and within 15 minutes of Orlando International Airport.
