Dealer registration for the 2018 Marine Dealer Conference & Expo is now open.
MDCE will take place Dec. 9 – 12 in Orlando, Fla., and will host dealers from across the country looking to grow their marine business through educational track sessions, dealer-to-dealer roundtable discussions, and a wide array of marine product and service vendors.
MDCE provides dealers with best practice tactics on the topics of leadership, sales, marketing, service and more.
During the month of April, MDCE attendees can receive up to $125 in savings. The earliest-bird registration offers attendees an additional $25 discount over the standard $25 early-bird discount through the April 30.
The MDCE is co-produced by the MRAA and Boating Industry magazine. Registrants will still be able to save with the $25 early bird price up until mid-September.
MRAA members receive an additional $75 off by logging into MRAA.com. With 193 total dealer registrations during the month of April in 2017, MDCE organizers expect similar success in 2018.
“With record-breaking dealer attendance last year, we are excited to see what 2018 brings,” said Liz Walz, vice president and director of education for the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas. “We believe that dealers continue to find extreme value in participating year after year and we expect to bring even better opportunities this year.”
In 2017, more than 650 dealers attended the three-day conference setting record for retail registrations.
“Taking advantage of early registration is a great way for dealers and attendees to get a jump-start on their 2018 MDCE experience,” said Boating Industry Editor Tim Hennagir.
The marine industry’s only dealer-specific educational conference, MDCE offers an in-depth lineup of educational sessions, a full-featured expo hall and a series of fixed networking opportunities, all of which are designed to help marine dealers connect with and learn from others who can foster their success.
MDCE features four Educational Tracks, Pre-Conference Workshops, Keynote Presentations, a Learning Lab, Dealer-to-Dealer Roundtable Discussions, and an Innovation Spotlight.
