Atlanta boat businesses band together

ATLANTA – At a recent meeting, 99 percent of Marine Trades Association of Metro Atlanta members voted to spend $100,000 to promote Lake Lanier, Lake Allatoona and other lakes in the Metro Atlanta Region over a 4-month period starting immediately, according to a Dealer Alert issued by the Marine Retailers Association of America this morning.

“We have a win win solution to help promote our dealers and our lakes,” said Bill Sommerfield, president of MTA of Metro Atlanta and vice president of Lazy Days Marina, Lake Lanier, Buford, Ga. “We want to get the word out in Georgia that we have water in our lakes and to come out to our dealers to check out new boats.”

This fall, Holiday Marina and JOA Marine are offering their dock space for a large in-water boat show for all members of MTA of Metro Atlanta, the association added.
