NMEA Conference

May 30, 2022

New Product Expo, Manufacturer Training, Technical Seminars, Installer Training, Product Awards- All Under One Roof!

The National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) has announced that its 2022 Conference will be held at the Sheraton Anaheim Park Hotel on October 3 – 7, 2022. The exhibition portion of the event will be held October 4 and 5 from 1:30 to 6:30 PM. The Sheraton Anaheim Park Hotel is located next to Disneyland so attendees can bring their families to this event.

The 2022 NMEA Marine Electronics Conference & Expo will be the largest industry trade event in the world focusing on marine electronics. Attendees will have an opportunity to participate in technical and education sessions offered by manufacturers and by the NMEA.

Mark Reedenauer, NMEA President & Executive Director, said, “I am happy to see the NMEA Conference & Expo return to the West Coast and to California. The NMEA moves the event around the nation to give opportunities for more members to attend and participate in the local area. Many electronics manufacturers have not yet brought back their in-person trainings they offered to their dealer network pre pandemic. Our event will feature manufacturers doing this in person technical training again, and in some cases, this is the only venue and location that in person training will be done this year. We invite the entire industry to take advantage of this unique one stop shop training and networking event.”
