Today, organizers of the Marine Dealer
Conference & Expo kick off the grand opening of registration with a
brand new marketing campaign. MDCE 2015 is scheduled to take place Nov. 15-18 at
the Orange County Convention Center and Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando, Fla.
The fresh look for MDCE includes an updated logo and all new imagery inspired
by marine retailers’ passion for the boating business.
attendees are a pretty diverse group, but what they share in common is a drive
to be the best in delivering the boating lifestyle to their customers,” explains Liz Walz, vice president of the Marine Retailers Association of the
Americas, which produces the annual event in partnership with Boating Industry. "This year’s marketing
campaign celebrates that drive and MDCE’s unique ability to fulfill it through
education, networking, products and services that help dealers take their
business to the next level.”
As an added bonus, marine retailers who register in the month of April
receive a $50 discount off of the Full Conference Rate of $499. MRAA members receive
an additional $75 off of their registration, for a total discount of $125. This
represents the lowest registration rate of the year.
"There’s no other event that gives marine retailers so many
opportunities for growth and improvement under one roof,” says Boating Industry editor-in-chief
Jonathan Sweet. "The special pricing available in April represents an
incredible value, especially when you consider all the new offerings we’ve been
adding in recent years.”
To receive the special April pricing, registrants need only
and register by April 30. MRAA members should log into the website with their
username and password before registering to receive their $75 member discount
on top of the special April pricing.
MDCE 2015 will include an Opening and Closing keynote address
and four Educational Tracks — Leadership, Sales, Marketing and Service Plus —
designed specifically to address the most critical aspects of marine dealer
operations. In addition, the MDCE Pre-Conference Workshops, which have featured
several of the most highly rated educational sessions for two years running,
will return with an even more impactful lineup of unique, hands-on sessions.
New for 2015, MDCE also will include a Learning Lab, where attendees can
consult one-on-one with leading experts.
The 2015 MDCE is scheduled for Nov. 15-18 at the Orange County
Convention Center and Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando, Fla. 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. To learn more, visit marinedealerconference.com.
