Welcome to the Austin Marine Retail University!
An MRAA and Dominion Marine Media Professional Development Series.
The Norman-Spencer Marine Retail University is coming back to Texas for 2014, and will be held in Austin, Texas, on Oct. 13 and 14. The Boating Trades Association of Texas is hosting the event at the Courtyard Marriott Austin Downtown, also known as the Austin Downtown Convention Center. It offers a full day of educational and networking opportunities on the 14th, before winding down by 4:00 p.m. that day. In addition, registrants can purchase a ticket to relax with their peers and enjoy a networking dinner on the town the night before (October 13th). Dinner location TBD.
Building off of the success of the first two years of the Marine Retail University event series, the MRU promises to offer you one-of-a-kind educational opportunities, in addition to the data and trends affecting your market place. In its first two seasons, the MRU made seven stops provided industry insights, best practices and expert advice to more than 700 people across the United States.
While the educational line-up for the 2014-15 event series is still being built, it promises to once again offer the same level of value and opportunity, providing marine businesses ideas for finding success in today's market place. This one-of-a-kind event is a can't-miss opportunity for dealers and all those interested in succeeding in the marine industry. The educational agenda will be tailored and customized for your market. And our speakers will present
data and statistics affecting the surrounding market area so that
attendees can set themselves apart from their competition by learning
how to capitalize on the leading trends.
Some of the topics you can expect include:
- How to lead your market
- What boat buyers want
- The key to selling at higher margins
- How to get more customers financed
- Strategies for succeeding by design, not by default
