At the Miami International Boat Show, Marine Marketers of America announced winners of its 2019 national Neptune Awards recognizing the best marine marketing in North America!
In addition, we were pleased to present two very special recognitions to two individuals including long-time MMA Board Member Greg Proteau of Boating Writers International for his years of outstanding association service and board contributions, and to former NMMA CMO Carl Blackwell for his stellar work and marketing leadership with the national Discover Boating Campaign.
While our Neptunes have enjoyed extensive media coverage in the marine trades, we wanted to share the results in our newsletter, along with some great pix from the event that was held in conjunction with Boating Writers International’s annual writing awards.
