OAK PARK, Ill. – The Lake Erie Marine Trades Association will make free round-trip airfare available for members who register to attend the Marine Retailers Association of America’s convention this November in Las Vegas, LEMTA said in a release yesterday.
LEMTA is offering free round-trip airfare from Cleveland to Las Vegas. Its group will travel non-stop on Continental Airlines in time to attend the Marine One Show and the opening of the MRAA Convention, according to LEMTA.
The association’s offer comes in response to Challenge 1000, an initiative begun earlier this year by a segment of marine dealers who are MRAA 20 Group members and want to see 1,000 of their fellow dealers attend the annual convention.
“We believe the MRAA Convention is currently the top industry gathering, with a good agenda and an excellent opportunity for our members to network with other dealers and manufacturers,” said LEMTA president Norm Schultz. “We want our members to benefit from all that and we’re emphasizing it simply by providing a strong incentive for them to attend.”
“It is our hope some of the state marine trades associations will join in the Challenge 1000,” said Phil Keeter, MRAA president. “Once again, LEMTA, as a leading association, has stepped forward and answered the call.”
For more convention details, contact MRAA at 708-763-9210. To make hotel reservations at the Stardust Hotel & Casino, phone 1-866-281-1034 and mention the MRAA code MRA04.
