Charlie Bulmer and his wife Chris welcomed all the guests to their 2023 show

After more than twenty-two previous shows, it should come as no surprise that the 2023 C.C. Marine Trade Show was a major success.

Hosted as always by the Bulmer family, Charlie, Christine and daughter Kelly, the show was supported by the C.C. Marine team who welcomed their family of customers to Casino Rama on November 5th and 6th, 2023. Responding to suggestions from their guests at the 2022 show, this year the event started on Sunday with a reception for their suppliers and vendors to get a relaxed and social time with the customers. We spoke to C.C. Marine’s Rick Chang who commented that this agenda was well received by their suppliers. Several commented that they really enjoyed meeting the C.C. Marine dealers. The overall reaction after the show closed was that bookings were strong and that this 2023 show may have been the greatest ever.

Chang added that he was impressed to see so many young faces among the guests. It was a positive change from previous shows and very encouraging.  The show layout provided lots of room for supplier and client interaction.

The Bulmer family always puts on an excellent event and the 2023 show was one of the best ever. Those who know Charlie know that he treats all his customers like family and the education and interaction between the manufacturers and the C.C. Marine customers has often lasted for generations. Watch for a future announcement of their plans for the 2024 C.C. Marine Trade Show.
