Preparations for Meet the Manufacturers 2019 (MTM2019) are well underway and it promises to be a superb way for the marine trade to get ready for the coming season.

Taking place on the 28th February at the Ordnance Survey Building, Southampton from 9am - 4.30pm, the event is a key opportunity to speak to all the leading Marine Electronics brands, see the new products for 2019 and attend valuable technical breakout seminars. If you can only spare an hour or two, not to worry, the flexible format means you can just pop in when it’s convenient for you.
There will be technical seminars running throughout the day. These 45 minute sessions will focus on the technical side of the product ranges providing tools to confidently spec, fit and sell the correct products. Technical sessions will be available from Raymarine, Nasa, Actisense, Navico, Fusion, Digital Yachts, Garmin, ICOM, Shakespeare, Scanstrut, Solar Technology and Alfatronix.
Brands signed up to attend are:
Actisense|Alfatronix|B&G| Echomax|C-MAP|Comar|Digital Yacht | Dokensip | Furuno | Fusion | Garmin | Life Cell | Lowrance | Simrad | SPOT | ICOM | Maretron | McMurdo | NASA | Navionics | Octopus | Oxford | Railblaza | Raymarine | Scangrip | Scanstrut | Shakespeare | Solar technology | Sony | Life Cell
There will also be a FLIR room to experience FLIR night vision cameras, a sound room so you can hear for yourself the difference between Fusion speakers, plus you can try out a Garmin virtual reality headset.
The day before the main event, on the afternoon of the 27th February there is the rare opportunity to try out the technology with our Live Onboard Experience, on boats kitted out with the latest equipment from Garmin, Raymarine, Simrad, B&G and Lowrance. Simply sign up to our event and register your interest in the On The Water Sessions, demand is high and spaces are limited so don’t delay in signing up.

Take the pressure off and stay over on Wednesday 27th February thanks to Garmin. Book and pay for your room at the Holiday Inn Express Southampton West, we will reimburse you with £80 credit to spend on Garmin products on the new SMG website. (T&Cs apply)
“We have tried to pack as much as possible into one day so that there is something for everyone. Attendees that came last year felt it was a really valuable day in a relaxed friendly environment” commented Ray Badminton SMG Managing Director “It is a great way to see all the key brands and expand product knowledge ready for the 2019 season. We look forward to meeting customers new and old, but spaces are limited, so please register early to avoid disappointment.”
