MRAA confirms next three convention dates

OAK PARK, Ill. – The Marine Retailers Association of America has released the dates for its 2008, 2009 and 2010 conventions, MRAA reported in a press release this week.

The dates were made official by the MRAA Board of Directors, based upon a recommendation from its convention committee, after a February meeting.

The dates are:

  • 2008: Nov. 17 – 19, Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas
  • 2009: Nov. 16 – 28, site and hotel to be determined
  • 2010: Nov. 15 – 17, site and hotel to be determined.
  • “The announcement of these future dates will allow our members, both retail and associate, state marine trades associations, manufacturers, distributors and all industry suppliers to mark their calendars well in advance to avoid conflict,” said Bob Soucy, MRAA chairman.

    “MRAA continually receives calls from our industry partners inquiring about our future dates so they don’t schedule a meeting on the same dates,” said Phil Keeter, MRAA president. “We appreciate and value their support and this will possibly alleviate duplicate scheduling.”

    MRAA’s convention committee is presently in the planning phase for the 2008 convention and the organization said more detailed information will be released shortly.
