The National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) has announced that the 2014 NMEA International Marine Electronics Conference and Expo will return to the Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort, in Fort Myers, Florida, from October 8 to 11 inclusive. The resort was the site of the 2011 NMEA event.
“Our 2014 NMEA conference and expo will focus on training, new product introductions, and developments in the technology of marine electronics,” said Johnny Lindstrom, NMEA's Interim Executive Director and Chairman of the Board. “This event also provides dealers nationwide with the best face-to-face contact with manufacturers.”
According to Lindstrom, the NMEA conference and expo has been completely reorganized to provide additional education and business opportunities for attendees. The industry has responded the past two years with record attendance and record participation in the beefed-up training classes. The NMEA conference and expo is the largest event in North America for the marine electronics trade.
“We've changed everything about the conference to make certain that dealers and technical personnel find it a rewarding training and educational experience that they must not miss,” said Brad Good, Chairman of the Conference Committee.
The 2014 NMEA International Marine Electronics Conference and Expo is expected to attract more than 600 dealers, technicians, distributors, manufacturers, and others who design, build, install and service marine electronics for recreational and commercial vessels.
The conference and expo will showcase marine electronics in an 11,000-square-foot exhibit area. Some manufacturers use the event to unveil new products for the coming year. For more details or to register visit nmea.org or call 410-975-9425.
