Why The Greater Philadelphia
In these troubling economic times how you spend your advertising dollars and the return you generate from them have never been more important. Sales are down, budgets are cut, but there's one thing that hasn't changed... consumers interested in buying boats still go to boat shows.
A study done by the University of Michigan found 55% of boat buyers had attended a boat show within the 6 months prior to making their buying decision. So are all boat shows a good investment?
The answer is No.
Boat shows are like an other form of advertising... it must offer a good ROI (Return On Investment).
The Greater Philidelphia Boat Show meets all the criteria for a successful show including:
