Big Business

The boat show news continues this week with the Edmonton Boat Show coming up and lots of news from the Miami International Boat Show and AIM, the owners of the Yachts Miami Beach Show being bought up by Informa. The shows are big business and generate significant revenue for their owners but they also represent a significant marketing expense for the show exhibitors. The post-show report from the NMMA's Miami show indicates the scope and impact as well as the success achieved in 2017. For our readers who were exhibitors in the Vancouver, Toronto, Halifax, Ottawa and Calgary shows, this is a polite reminder that sales follow up is perhaps the most critical part of being an exhibitor.

The shows are a great investment as long as you close a reasonable number of the show leads. As we begin March 2017, it's time to close those show leads and get product ordered and in for summer 2017. All indicators are that the show results were strong this year. We wish you good luck getting all that new product delivered this spring!
