Share |



If you're a marine retailer who has not attended the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo for the past three years, but would like to participate in 2015, the MDCE Scholarship Program -- made possible through the support of marine trade publication Soundings Trade Only -- may be the perfect opportunity for you.


For 2015, the program will offer three scholarships. Each scholarship includes an MDCE Standard Dealer Registration, up to $450 in travel reimbursement, and a three-night hotel stay at the Rosen Plaza or Rosen Centre Hotel, for a total value of $1,396 a piece.

Marine retailers can apply for a chance to receive an MDCE scholarship by completing the application available below by Wednesday, October 21st. To choose the recipients, the selection committee will consider how the candidates plan to put what they learn at MDCE to work in their businesses, as well as their financial need.

This year’s MDCE, which is scheduled to take place Nov. 15-18 at the Orange County Convention Center, Rosen Plaza Hotel and Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando, Fla., features 12 Pre-Conference Workshops and four concurrent Educational Tracks, including Leadership, Sales, Marketing and Service Plus, plus an MRAA Special Session and an Opening and Closing keynote.

In total, the event includes 35 educational offerings, and attendees are invited to choose whichever combination of sessions best fits their needs and desires. All of these educational offerings are included with a standard MDCE Registration, with the exception of the 12 Pre-Conference Workshops, which require a separate registration fee.
