MINNEAPOLIS – Marine retailers who are looking to register at the lowest possible rate for the annual Marine Dealer Conference & Expo can save up to $150 per person if they sign up by the end of the day April 30.

During the month of April, MDCE registrants can combine a $50 early-bird registration discount with a $25 April promo to register for the guaranteed lowest rate of the year. And MRAA Members can save an additional $75, which means that they can register at the same low rate as the 2012 event. The 2013 MDCE is scheduled for Nov. 17-20 in Orlando, Fla.

Since 2007, the MDCE has attracted an increasing number of dealers every year, and last year, more than 1,000 industry professionals attended the event. With nearly 160 people already registered for this year’s event, the MDCE has now set a record for the most registrations it has ever had prior to May 1. The highest number of MDCE registrations recorded in any year prior to the month of May was 92 in 2012. See who has registered for MDCE here:

To take advantage of all the savings available for the 2013 event, simply visit and register. MRAA Members should log in before registering, and everyone is eligible to enter the promo code “AprilMDCE” to save even more. The $50 early-bird discount will be automatically applied.

"It’s incredibly exciting to see that the interest in the MDCE continues to grow with each new year," said Matt Gruhn, president of the MRAA, which co-produces the MDCE with Boating Industry. "And what’s even more rewarding is that we just finalized our educational line-up, and it is far and away the best we’ve ever offered. Those dealers who raved about the 2012 event will be blown away by what the 2013 MDCE has to offer.”

"With the additional value that we are building into the 2013 MDCE, we expect the record pace for registrations to continue right up until the show begins," said Jonathan Sweet, editor-in-chief of Boating Industry. "We've spent a lot of time focusing on increasing the opportunities that the MDCE offers dealers, and whether you're an annual attendee or a first-time attendee, there's no question that you will walk away with numerous ideas that you can implement immediately in your business."
