Ah Miami, how we love you. Like no other city on earth, you embrace us and make us feel welcome. We are just back from the Miami Intl Boat Show, and boy are we exhausted. Miami is always our biggest retail show of the year, and we set a new sales record there this year. The are a whole lot more cup holders, rod holders, dive racks and iPad mounts in South Florida now than there were a week ago.
Our team (John “Showstopper” Ortiz, Brian Wells, Brad Kapper and Gregg Casagrande) wheeled and dealed, discounted and demonstrated the greatness of SeaSucker products to the tens of thousands of show-goers who wandered through the Miami Beach Convention Center and the accessories tent in the parking lot. We talked and sold products to customers from the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Panama, Columbia, Peru, the Seychelles, Qatar, Japan, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Bermuda, Australia and New Zealand – and that’s just who we actually knew where they were from!
We sold out of a lot of items (iPad Mount, Vertical Party Barge, Horizontal Party Barge, 4-Cup Holder w/ Large Dry Box, 2-Tank Racks, 3-Tank Racks, Horizontal Rod Holders, Angle-Mount Cup Holder, among others), so if you didn’t get the chance to buy what you wanted, you can always go on-line to buy it and we’ll send it to your door.
Next up on the boat show calendar – the Fred Hall Fishing Show in Long Beach, CA (March 7-11) and the New England Saltwater Fishing Expo in Providence, RI (March 9-11). Hope to see you there!
