Industry Celebration at Dealer Week Features Live Music Made Possible by Kicker Marine Audio

The Dealer Week Industry Celebration, which takes place on the Tampa Riverwalk at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 10, is open to all conference attendees and will celebrate the 2019 accomplishments of the entire marine industry.

Dealer Week, the newly reimagined MRAA Conference & Expo, has updated the format of previous MRAA events in many ways, but one of the most fun might be the addition of a large “Industry Celebration” on the final evening of the event.

The gathering is a chance to kick back and celebrate the accomplishments of the marine industry in 2019 and will take place on the Tampa Riverwalk on Tuesday, Dec. 10, starting at 8 p.m. All Dealer Week attendees are invited to join in the celebration, which will feature food, drinks and live music from award-winning party band Phase5.

The live music is made possible by Kicker Marine Audio, who are also offering Dealer Week attendees a chance to win 1 of 100 sets of Kicker Bluetooth Earbuds, which they will give away at their booth during the event. Additionally, Kicker is offering two $350 prize packages that each include a pair of the company’s Bullfrog Bluetooth speakers. Details of how to win the first prize package, open to all industry dealers, are available now on the Dealer Week Facebook page.

“December is a great time for anyone to take a break and look back on what they’ve accomplished, but it’s especially appropriate in the marine industry,” says Allison Gruhn, MRAA’s Director of Business Development. “Dealers have finally wrapped up winterization and can take a moment before boat show seasons begins. At Dealer Week, we spend a lot of time thinking ahead to how we can make the industry better, but we don’t want to forget to look back at what has been accomplished. This year we’re excited to be able to celebrate in style in Tampa, and we appreciate Kicker Marine Audio for turning up the volume on the celebration and making sure we have a great band to perform for all our guests.”
