MRAA Dealer WeekMarineMax, Inc., America’s largest recreational boat and yacht retailer, has pledged its full support for Dealer Week, the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas’ Annual Conference & Expo, to be held Dec. 8-11, 2019, in Tampa, Fla.
 
MarineMax has committed to bringing the largest group of its leadership team to Dealer Week that it has ever brought to an MRAA Conference.
 
“Dealer Week was created to deliver opportunities for us, as dealers,” says Brett McGill, President and CEO of MarineMax. “We’re committing at such a high level to this event because of the incredible value of the educational programming that MRAA offers as well as the fact that we know our investment in Dealer Week and the MRAA will get reinvested into making our industry even stronger. We’re looking forward to helping make this event and incredible success.”
 
As a longtime MRAA Retail Member, MarineMax has achieved Marine Industry Certified Dealership status at all of its retail locations and remains committed to maintaining a level of excellence throughout its organization. The leadership of MarineMax has a long association with the MRAA, which has included volunteer positions on the MRAA Board of Directors, key roles on various MRAA committees, and most recently participating in the inaugural Dealer Week strategic planning meeting in Tampa last October.
 
“MarineMax is a leader in this industry, and we’re so grateful that they’ve taken a leadership role on an issue that we think is critical for all of us, namely the importance of continuous education and improvement to make our dealer body as strong as it can possibly be,” says Matt Gruhn, MRAA President. “We believe Dealer Week is going to help drive marine retail toward increasing excellence, and it’s extremely gratifying to hear that MarineMax feels the same way.”
