The Marine Dealer Conference & Expo recently announced its dates and locations for next year. If you missed the news, it will be held November 11-14 at the Rosen Plaza Hotel and Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.
Those of you who attended the event in 2010 will remember that this is the second time the event has been based at the Convention Center. I'm looking forward to returning to the venue, since it's adjacent to the Pointe Orlando entertainment area, which offers and nice variety of restaurants and shopping after a hard day of seminars and networking.
For those of you who've never been, I'd like to recommend the Pan Fried Calamari with Hot Cherry Peppers at the Capital Grille at Pointe Orlando. I'd also like to recommend you watch our orientation video in the top right corner of this post. (And yes, the narrator of the video is as smart and attractive as he sounds.)
