point in the year. In fact, that number is a 173-percent increase over the
previous highest number of registrants prior to May 1. The previous high was 92
registrants in 2012.

and year-out,” says Matt Gruhn, President of the Marine Retailers Association
of the Americas, who co-produces the MDCE with Boating Industry. "They trust in
the opportunities, ideas and connections that this event will provide them, and
they know that when we say this year will offer the best educational line-up to
date, we will follow through on that promise.”
finishing touches are being put on the educational agenda this week, and the
speakers and topics will begin to be announced later this month. The full event
promotional brochure will be published in June and will be inserted into
Boating Industry magazine.
