Organizers of the 2013 Marine Dealer Conference & Expo have begun creating plans for an all-new educational agenda, including some exciting changes, that will exceed the value of any prior MDCE educational conference.
Each year, planning for the MDCE educational agenda begins with a thorough review of the previous year event's on-site educational session surveys, as well as post-event CSI surveys and feedback from attendees and the dealer-led MRAA Conference Committee. Those results are used to help craft an event survey that seeks to outline the topics that are most relevant to and desired by the dealer community. Organizers then pair those results with input from its annual Call for Presentations to create the educational line-up.
"We want this survey to help us gain insight from you on how we can deliver the conference of your dreams," explains Liz Walz, Director of Membership & Marketing for the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas, which co-produces this event with Boating Industry. "We want the 2013 MDCE to be the one that delivers more concrete takeaways than ever before — the one that generates brand new ideas and relationships that boost your results all year long and the one that inspires your team to perform at the highest levels yet."
Whether you're a dealer, a service yard, a marina or someone else interested in the success of the marine retail body, we encourage you to complete the survey. The survey should take only a few minutes to complete, but could make an enormous difference for the success you can find at the 2013 MDCE.
"Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts on how we can design the best MDCE yet," says Jonathan Sweet, Editor-in-Chief of Boating Industry. "The way we see it, this is YOUR event, and together we will make it incredible."
