Marine Industry Dealers and Manufacturers Find Value at CWR Dealer Training and Expo

Atlantic City, New Jersey – CWR Wholesale Distribution hosted a well-known training and networking event for a diverse network of marine dealers and manufacturers.  The event, officially named the CWR Dealer Training and Expo, took place February 6-9th at the Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel.

“Seeing over 120 people in a training session was great to see after missing 2 years due to the pandemic,” said Brian Swanke, President of CWR Wholesale Distribution. “CWR prioritizes staying up to date within the industry by hosting events and attending related industry shows. It was a relief to have the opportunity to host an event with dealer training opportunities and new product information after going through the COVID pandemic.”

Day one kicked off with record attendance at the NMEA Basic Marine Electronics Installer Training, where attendees had a chance to become NMEA Basic MEI certified. The week continued with the 2023 Dealer Training event, featuring over 25 manufacturers who held individual training sessions about marine electronics, marine components, sailboat hardware, and more. Information about current and incoming products was highlighted in the training sessions, along with technical expertise.

At CWR’s 2023 Expo, attendees had an opportunity to see products firsthand and ask questions directly to the manufacturers while enjoying a fun networking event. With over 100 manufacturers in attendance, this was an excellent chance to interact with manufacturers showcasing new products, demonstrations, and giveaways. The Expo also featured raffles and concluded with a cocktail reception, making it the perfect day to improve industry knowledge.
