Nearly 500 dealers, sponsors and other industry representatives are expected to attend this year's Boating Industry Top 100 gala.
The 12th annual gala recognizes the Boating Industry Top 100. The 2016 edition will be Thursday, Dec. 8, in Orlando, Fla., following the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo.
“From the thousands of dealers in North America – and hundreds of nominations – these 100 dealers are the best of the best,” said Boating Industry Editor in Chief Jonathan Sweet. “These dealers excel not only at the business of selling boats, but also delivering a great customer experience.”
This year's program featured the highest number of applications since the recession, another sign of the improving health of the boating industry.
The Top 100 is the only independent ranking of boat dealers in North America. The list recognizes dealerships that are unsurpassed in business operations, professionalism, marketing tactics, customer service and more. The Boating Industry Top 100 has recognized the top dealers in North America every year since 2005.
The 2016 Top 100 will be announced at the gala and published on BoatingIndustry.com on December 9.
