I am thrilled too, that Judy Richardson will be heading up our sales effort again this year along side her colleagues at Ad Astra” said John Kerr President.

The printed version of the guides at the front entrances to the shows, but our ability to reach attendees prior to both shows digitally will help boaters plan and research.
