Welcome to the Watersports Forum!
The Watersports Forum is a special event that brings together the brightest minds and experienced operators in the watersport and boating industry. Each participant will have the opportunity to sign up for various roundtable discussions led by industry experts. Some of the topics include pricing, regulations, and marketing. After the roundtables, join us at a happy hour reception for networking, open bar, and small plates.
Operators that attend this forum can expect real conversation directly from some of the most successful in the business. If you’re looking to add new equipment, create a new tour, or re-brand your business, this is where you’ll want to be.
The networking segment provides new perspectives that might drive new innovative ideas for your business. This event is made for operators by operators, so be ready with an open mind. Better update that LinkedIN profile!
