Recreational Boating Industry Featured on Front Page of USA Today

The size and impact of the U.S. recreaitonal boating industry was featured on the front page of USA Today this week as part of their popular 'snapshot' series, which features key data points impacting Americans. The statistic featured was: 'Americans spent $39 billion on marine products in 2017, up 7% from 2016.' The 'snapshot' was secured as part of a collaborative effort between NMMA and the Outdoor Recreation Roundtable (ORR). NMMA is a founding member of ORR and is working with the group to bring attention to the importance of the outdoor industry in Washington as well as around the country in key states. Highighting the size and impact of the industry through media relations coverage is part of these efforts.
