LAS VEGAS – Refuting a popular superstition, the 13th day of October — a Friday — did not prove unlucky for Land ‘N’ Sea Distributing’s dealer trade show. The two-day RV and marine event held at South Point Casino in Las Vegas closed with what company executives described as “strong attendance and sales.”
“The dealers’ enthusiasm and buying excitement were high throughout our show,” offered Land ‘N’ Sea president Mike Conners. “We had a great turnout, and our dealers can expect an even better experience next year as we continue to steer towards new horizons of growth and opportunity.”
While Land ‘N’ Sea does not release specific sales, vendor or attendance numbers, marketing and e-commerce director Aimee Vera told RVBusiness that the show appeared to be as good or better than last year, with attendees in the hundreds. “Dealers were happy, positive, and in a buying mood,” added Vera.
The show is a mix of RV and marine dealers, with marine the majority.
For dealers who could not make the October show or are still shopping for deals, Land ‘N’ Sea will host a one-day virtual show on November 3.
Additional in-person shows for the marine industry will also be held in Connecticut from November 16-17 and in Ohio from November 29-30. More information can be found here.
Land ‘N’ Sea, a division of Mercury Marine and Brunswick Corporation, is a full-service, wholesale-only distributor serving the RV, marine, and personal watercraft industry. The company said it has 80,000 different parts and accessories available from 17 warehouses serving the United States and Canada.
