Registration Now Open For BC Marine Industry Conference

The BC Marine Trades Association (BCMTA) has announced that registration is now open for the BC Marine Industry Conference to be held on November 28 and 29 at the River Rock Casino Resort. The theme –Business and Personal Growth – is supported by high profile headline speakers that will "motivate both business owners and employees in the recreational marine sector to take the next steps to achieving business growth, sales and personal success,' says the organization.

Keynoting the conference is Cameron Herold, founder of BackPocket COO, best-selling business author and one of the country's most innovative business leaders. Known for his role in taking 1-800-GOT-JUNK? from a $2 million to a $106 million company, Herold will share his tips for helping both business owners and employees go from "Zero to Good.'

GE Capital will share its industry perspective and provide an economic overview of the recreational marine industry. GE Capital is also generously co-sponsoring this year's keynote address by Cameron Herold. GE's participation in this year's conference and collaboration with BCMTA demonstrates its continued commitment to growth in the recreational marine industry.
