MINNEAPOLIS – To kick off the grand opening of registration for the 2013 Marine Dealer Conference & Expo, organizers are launching an incredible April promotion through which dealers can sign up to attend the event at the lowest price of the year.

Dealers who register during the month of April receive an extra $25 discount on top of the standard $50 early bird discount off of the full registration rate of $499. Members of the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas receive an additional $75 off of their registration, for a total April discount of $150, which will allow them to register at the same rate as the 2012 MDCE.

"With this promotion, we wanted to thank our many loyal attendees,” commented Boating Industry Editor-in-Chief Jonathan Sweet, "while also incentivizing newcomers to give the event a try. I guarantee that the value they take away from the event will far exceed their investment.”

Through this promotion, MRAA Members have a special opportunity to pay the same low rate of $349 that was offered at this time last year, but this rate expires at the end of April, and registrants won’t see a rate this low again.

"This year, we are investing in providing dealers with a phenomenal educational experience beyond what they have encountered in this industry before,” explained Matt Gruhn, MRAA President. "To offer such high quality content, we have more than doubled our speaker budget, allowing us to deliver new insights and strategies that attendees can use to create a powerful advantage for their business in the marketplace.”

To receive the $25 additional discount during the month of April, registrants need only visit, click Register and enter the promo code: AprilMDCE. MRAA members should also log into the website with their username and password before registering to receive their $75 member discount on top of the April special.

The 2013 Marine Dealer Conference & Expo will be held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Nov. 17-20. This year’s host hotel will be the Rosen Plaza, located adjacent to the Orange County Convention Center. As a bonus for 2013, the MDCE expo floor is located in the hall closest to the Rosen Plaza.
