“This show is small by design and represents a new approach to making sales for the state’s boating industry,” marketing director Bob Glover said in a statement. “New Jersey is the heart of boating in the Mid-Atlantic region with numerous manufacturers, dealers and businesses throughout the state.
“Best of all, there are thousands of serious and experienced boaters living in the region and actively participating in various forms of boating all along our coast, harbors and bays,” he added. “Why not join together and promote our products to those who are truly interested in them and have the financial resources to purchase them?”
This show will cater to those boaters who are already involved and invested in their passion, Glover stressed. It will give those customers a special place to view new products without the trappings, inconveniences or waiting lines that have become commonplace at most shows.
South Jersey Marina has prime road frontage along the entryway to the historic town of Cape May.
“It is an accommodating facility that is ideal for this type of show,” show manager Mark Allen said in a statement. “Small by design, there will be only approximately 60 in-water spaces available and just 15,000 square feet of land display space for trailered boats, engine displays, etc.”
