MRAA’s Dealer Week, the largest annual marine dealer education event kicks off on Monday, Dec. 5, in Austin, Texas.

Registration has been tracking at record-setting levels leading up to the event.

Below is an overview of what to expect at Dealer Week 2022:  

• Economic Updates: Get the latest projections on where the economy is headed in 2023. Multiple experts will provide insights, including a Wells Fargo economist who will help kick off the conference during the Opening Ceremony.

• Discipline Amidst Disruption: The theme for Dealer Week 2022 is all about controlling the things you can in an unprecedented (and unpredictable) marketplace. Topics include customer experience, employee retention, high-performance teams, time management and more.

• Historic Expo Hall: See the latest models from a wide selection of manufacturers and meet with partners during education sessions, who are dedicated to dealer success. 

• Networking Receptions: This year’s networking receptions will feature more opportunities to get together, including a Women in the Industry meetup in the Expo Hall hosted by Soundings Trade Only. Mix and mingle over specialty drinks from partners like Pineapple Payments. 

• Groovy Industry Celebration: To honor MRAA’s 50th anniversary (founded in 1972), a 70s-themed celebration will feature food, drinks and a few surprises. This is open to all Dealer Week attendees and made possible by KICKER Marine Audio.
