ORLANDO, Fla. – The National Marine Distributors Association (NMDA) has signed on to provide Educational Funding Support for the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo for the second year in a row.
“It’s no coincidence that the MDCE educational content received the highest ratings in the history of the event in 2012, which was the first year NMDA pledged its support,” says Liz Walz, Director of Membership & Education for the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas, which co-produces the event annually with Boating Industry magazine. "Thanks to another year of support from NMDA, we made substantial additional investments in MDCE’s education, which will allow dealers to take away more from this conference to improve and grow their businesses than ever before.”
In 2012, the NMDA contribution allowed MDCE organizers to take the educational content to a new level, resulting in record levels of attendee satisfaction and loyalty. Heading into the 2013 event, NMDA’s support helped organizers offer nearly 30 educational sessions from the most powerful speaker line-up yet.
“The National Marine Distributors Association believes in the power of education to drive industry growth and improvement,” says Nancy Cueroni, NMDA Executive Director. “Our members are committed to supporting the success of the marine dealer community, and the NMDA’s sponsorship of the MDCE Educational Program is one of many ways we demonstrate that commitment.”
