NMRA At Ibex 2016


July 17, 2016

Independent sales reps play an important function in the overall marine sales chain. Yet many manufacturers, especially those new to the industry, have only a cursory knowledge of the work reps do and how to benefit from working with them. The National Marine Representatives Association (NMRA) is again hosting its popular “Ask A Rep” sessions at the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition & Conference (IBEX) in Tampa, Florida, October 4–6.

Between 10 am and 3 pm on Tuesday, October 4 and Wednesday, October 5, NMRA members will be available for lively, one-on-one consultations. They’ll bring their extensive experience to bear on a wide range of topics in both the OEM and aftermarket segments. The hosts will also explain how they develop and foster relationships with the manufacturers they serve, and boatbuilders, marinas, retail outlets and a host of other boat-related businesses. Walk-ins are welcome and appointments can be made by contacting Booth #2000.

NMRA is a national, non-profit member organization that serves independent marine sales reps and the manufacturers who sell through reps. It functions as an industry voice, promoting the benefits of utilizing reps, and acts as an information source and networking tool.
