Posted by: Lindsey Johnson
Organizers of the Marine
Dealer Conference & Expo are seeking educational session proposals from
potential speakers for the 2015 MDCE, which will be held Nov. 15-18 at the
Orange County Convention Center and Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando, Fla. The
deadline to submit a proposal is Mar. 13.
Presentations should be directed at an audience of marine dealership
professionals, from dealership principals and general managers to employees and
managers of such departments as sales, marketing, service, parts, accessories,
finance and insurance, boat rentals/clubs, and marina operations.
MDCE organizers are looking for presentations on advanced, intermediate and
fundamental business topics. The information to be presented should be timely,
informative and educational, offering concrete takeaways the audience can bring
back to their business to accelerate future success.
If you have an idea for an educational seminar that would
make a meaningful contribution to MDCE 2015 and the presentation skills to
entertain and engage our audience, we want to hear from you! To submit a
presentation proposal, please visit http://www.mraa.com/?page=MDCE_Presentations
and fill out the form.

The 2015 MDCE will offer two full days of Educational Tracks, in
addition to a half-day of Pre-Conference Workshops and two keynotes. The
conference has traditionally included three Educational Tracks, but last year
it expanded to four: Leadership, Sales, Marketing and Service Plus. A Closing
Keynote address also was added in 2014 and will likewise conclude the 2015
In 2014, MDCE attracted more than 580 dealers, 40 percent of which
attended for the very first time. MRAA’s goal is to grow
the event to more than 1,000 dealer attendees. Total MDCE 2014 attendance,
including exhibitors, topped more than 1,100 marine industry professionals. To learn
