MDCE Scholarship Program
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 this year, the MDCE Scholarship Program -- made possible through the support of marine trade publication Soundings Trade Only -- may be the perfect opportunity for you.


The program offers 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 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 Friday, November 3rd. 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 Dec. 10-13 at the Orange County Convention Center, Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando, Fla., features 9 Pre-Conference Workshops and four concurrent Educational Tracks, including Leadership, Sales, Marketing and Service Plus, as well as an opening and closing keynote, and many more special event opportunities. 

In total, the event includes more than 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 9 Pre-Conference Workshops, which require a separate registration fee.
