Williston, FL-Monterey Boats held its annual National Sales Summit in Tampa, Florida at the Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina. The conference took place from November 30th through December 1st, 2015 with more than 120 people in attendance and over 30 dealerships from around the nation.
This year’s conference received overwhelming positive feedback from the attendees. Featuring onsite display models both on-land as well as in-water, dealers were able to see firsthand the new features for the 2016 model year and gain personal insight and familiarity with Monterey Boats’ 2016 product.
One of the highlights of this year’s training session included the new 218SS and 238SS Roswell Surf Editions as part of the displays. With Monterey’s staff of pro-wakesurfers on hand to instruct and demonstrate, these models gave dealers the opportunity to experience the newest member of the Monterey family up close. The new for 2016 258SS was also part of this years in-water display, and was equally well received.
During the presentation portion of the sales conference, Monterey Boats Regional Sales Managers presented invaluable information with suggestions on how to highlight and align the sales process with the customer’s buying process. Volvo Penta as well as Mercury Marine also provided key portions of the presentations, giving tremendous insight into the new engine line-ups both companies are offering for 2016.
Another educational presentation was given by the Water Sports Industry Association members Larry Meddock, Director of the WSIA and Kevin Michael, Assistant Director of the WSIA.
