Dealer Week

NMDA is a sponsor of Dealer Week as we believe in the power of dealers.

Dealer Week is where marine dealers gather to  learn from the industry’s leading experts and explore the latest trends  with marine manufacturers and service providers. A variety of educational tracks will be offered, focusing on sales, marketing,  service and management topics.

Who should attend: Marine retailers seeking strategies to improve their profits and performance. A wide variety of topics  will be covered, with content that applies to general managers,  department managers, dealer principals, service advisers, service and  parts managers, sales personnel, sales managers, general managers and  marketing managers.

The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas will hold next year’s Dealer Week at the Austin Convention Center in Texas. The dates for the conference are Dec. 8-11.

“The MRAA has many members in the western half of the U.S. — and in Texas itself — and we hope that by hosting Dealer Week in the Lone Star State, we can expose new dealerships to the educational goals the conference provides,” MRAA president Matt Gruhn said in a statement.

The convention center and adjacent host hotel, The Fairmont, are located in downtown Austin and are within walking distance of popular attractions.
