Marine retailers interested in attending this year's Marine Dealer Conference and Expo (MDCE) can save up to US $150 per person if they sign up by April 30 before the end of the day. The annual MDCE is scheduled to take place from November 17 to 20 in Orlando, Florida.
“It's incredibly exciting to see that the interest in the MDCE continues to grow with each new year,” says Matt Gruhn, President of the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas (MRAA), which co-produces the MDCE with Boating Industry. “And what's even more rewarding is that we just finalized our educational line-up, and it is far and away the best we've ever offered. Those dealers who raved about the 2012 event will be blown away by what the 2013 MDCE has to offer.'
According to event organizers, during the month of April MDCE registrants can combine a US $50 early-bird registration discount with a US $25 April promo to register for the lowest rate of the year. MRAA Members can save an additional US $75, which means that they can register at the same rate as the 2012 event.
MDCE features an in-depth line-up of educational topics, a full-featured expo hall and a series of fixed networking opportunities, all of which are designed to help marine dealers connect with and learn from others who can foster their success. The event includes 20 total sessions divided into dealer principal, sales people and service staff tracks. Since 2007, the MDCE has attracted an increasing number of dealers every year, and last year, more than 1,000 industry professionals attended the event. With nearly 160 people already registered for this year's event, organizers say MDCE has set a record for the most registrations it has ever had prior to May 1. The highest number of MDCE registrations recorded in any year prior to the month of May was 92 in 2012. A list of who has registered for MDCE can be found here.
