MBIA opens registration to 2016 Recreational Boating Educational Conference
Registration is open for the Michigan Boating Industries Association’s 2016 Recreational Boating Educational Conference, coming to the Radisson Hotel in Lansing, Mich. December 7-8. More than 150 marine business men and women from the Michigan boating industry are expected to attend.
Keynote speakers include Professional Motivator Ted Janusz and Michigan State University’s Athletic Director Mark Hollis. More than fifteen top-named speakers will offer seminars on marketing, sales, environmental regulations, F&I, yacht clubs, and more. The 2nd annual Millennial Roundtable for the industry’s young professionals is a special session with the intent of getting more employees of all ages involved with RBEC and MBIA.
“This year’s theme for RBEC is all about ‘Passion’ – people in our industry work extremely hard, have long days and long seasons and they have to have passion for what they do to succeed,” said MBIA Board Chairman Tom Haag. “Whether it be running a marina, a boat dealership, insuring boats or repairing canvas, each person has a great regard for boating. At RBEC, we’re going to ignite the passion within attendees with targeted education, networking and fun so they can return to their business invigorated and be better at what they do.”
This two-day event is the only one in Michigan dedicated to the advancement of the marine industry, with targeted educational seminars featuring three tracks: Marina, Dealer and Marketing & New Technology.
“Our members value this opportunity to learn from experts and from each other at many networking opportunities during the conference,” said MBIA Executive Director Nicki Polan. “We also host our MBIA Annual Meeting, Awards Luncheon, association update and election results at RBEC.”
“Attendees can take this re-ignited passion for our industry back to current customers, boating enthusiasts and future customers,” said Haag. “That’s how we keep and grow boaters in Michigan.”
