Market Spurs NMMA to Nix Chicagoland Show
The 2012 Rosemont Sportfishing, Travel and Outdoors show, scheduled to take place Jan. 25-29, was canceled this week due to low industry demand.
“There just wasn’t enough critical mass to warrant an acceptable selling environment for our exhibitors and a quality event for attendees,” said the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) in a press release.
With the cancellation of the Rosemont show, the NMMA will be focusing its energy on its Progressive Insurance Chicago Boat, Sports and RV show to be held Jan. 12-16.
“By moving forward without the Rosemont show, we’ll be able to focus producing one dynamic show in the market, delivering a more robust landscape at NMMA’s Progressive Insurance Chicago Boat, Sports & RV Show and stronger selling environment for the Chicagoland boating, fishing, travel and outdoors industries,” the NMMA said in a release.
