The final attendance numbers are in, and more than 300 marine industry members attended last week's State of the Industry Webinar presented by Boating Industry.

This is the first time the magazine has hosted a webinar on overall market trends, but the strong industry response may lead to more such events in the future.

"As an industry publication, we have access to a lot of experts and information that our readers do not," said Boating Industry Senior Editor Mike Davin, who hosted the event. "Any time we can bring them together to share their expertise, whether it's at the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo or on this webinar, we feel like it's good for the industry."

The webinar coincided with the release of Boating Industry's annual Market Data Book, which features market intelligence from multiple sectors of the marine industry. Several of the experts who contributed to the Data Book appeared on the webinar to provide context to the numbers that appear in the magazine.

A recording to the webinar is available as a free download at
