Organizers of the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo - the marine industry’s only dealer-specific educational conference - are seeking educational session proposals from potential speakers for the 2018 conference, which will take place Dec. 9-12 in Orlando, Fla.
Each year, MDCE show producers strive to build an educational event that gives dealership owners, managers and employees the tools and insight to improve their performance in areas such as sales, leadership, service, marketing, parts, accessories, finance and insurance. The deadline for submissions is March 22.
“We seek out new guidance from the dealer community to build a fresh educational line-up each year,” said Liz Walz, vice president of the Marine Retailers Association. “In researching and selecting speakers and topics, we focus on not only the strategies for success dealers tell us they need most in a changing market, but also what attendees require to implement these strategies and achieve measurable results when they return to the business.”
In addition to soliciting presentations and workshops on business topics that are timely, informative, applicable to the marine industry and offer concrete takeaways, organizers seek presenters who can successfully engage, educate and motivate a large and diverse audience of marine retailers.
“In every aspect of MDCE, we look for ways to improve the experience and value we offer to participants,” said Tim Hennagir, editor of Boating Industry. “Given the priority our attendees place on education, we put particular focus on raising the bar in this area.”
If you have an idea for an educational seminar that would make a meaningful contribution to MDCE 2018 and the presentation skills to engage and inspire the conference’s audience, please submit a proposal or email Liz Walz for additional information.
