The 2015 MDCE will offer two full days of Educational Tracks, in addition to a half-day of Pre-Conference Workshops and two keynotes. The conference has traditionally included three Educational Tracks, but last year it expanded to four: Leadership, Sales, Marketing and Service Plus. A Closing Keynote address also was added in 2014 and will likewise conclude the 2015 event.

In 2014, MDCE attracted more than 580 dealers, 40 percent of which attended for the very first time. MRAA’s goal is to grow the event to more than 1,000 dealer attendees. Total MDCE 2014 attendance, including exhibitors, topped more than 1,100 marine industry professionals. To learn more, visit
