Marine Marketers of America (MMA), the voice for marketing professionals in the recreational marine industry, will host a celebration of its 2022 Neptune Awards during a cocktail reception at this year’s Discover Miami International Boat Show (MIBS).
The award program, now in its 15th year, honors creative marketing concepts, campaigns and initiatives from across all sectors of the marine industry ecosystem. The event is set to take place Wednesday, February 15, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Art Deco Room on the second floor of the Miami Convention Center. Category winners of the 2022 Neptune Awards will be announced at the event, and the coveted King Neptune Award winner, recognizing the best of the best, will also be announced.
Sponsors that are attending and supporting the event include: Boat Trader, Brunswick Boat Group, Camping World, Galati Yacht Sales, Infolink, MarineMax, Mercury, Trade Only, Regulator Marine, SeaTow, Sportsman Boats, TACO Marine, YachtWorld and Yamaha.
Tickets are available for purchase on the Neptune Awards webpage. The event is open to all marketing professionals in the marine industry. Members of MMA receive a special discounted rate, so non-members are encouraged to join the organization. The venue does have a maximum capacity, so early registration is encouraged. Attendance is expected to be high since this will be the first year that the Neptune Awards event will be held in person after a three-year hiatus. Attendees will enjoy an evening of networking, cocktails, hors-d’oeuvres and the chance to win sponsored door prizes.
“Our association is excited to be back in person and to celebrate marketing and innovation in the marine industry,” said Courtney Chalmers, president of the Marine Marketers of America. “This year’s Neptune entries once again showcased best in class marketing and creativity, and we’re looking forward to celebrating the winners as they set new benchmarks for the industry. The event will certainly be fun and one not to be missed.”
