Top three Reasons January is Best Time for Mid-Southerners to Shop Boats
It’s cold in January!
So why are we seeing advertisements for boat expos? The "NEW Memphis Boat Expo" will dock inside the Memphis Cook Convention Center in downtown Memphis, Jan. 12 through Jan. 14, 2018.
The event is produced by TURNBOW, INC. The first annual downtown Memphis event will cover the entire main hall and pre-function areas of Cook Convention Center. This kicks off the boat show season for the Mid-South. Here are the top 3 reasons why January is the best time for mid-southerners to shop boats.
Boat trade shows or expos bring together most of the major boat builders and dealers into one space. Exhibitors usually show off the new models and display the most popular boats in their lineups. Visitors can see and experience the actual, life-size boats within one place. Boat shows are also social events where thousands of boaters from far and wide gather each year to talk boats and dream of their next purchase.
With most of the major boating industry players and providers of goods and services are at the boat expos, consumers can get all the information they need to plan for the next boating season within one location. You can find out about insurance, financing, watercraft registration, licenses, marinas, and other matters of interest.
Better Prices and Terms
Unlike an Auto Show, you can purchase a boat at a boat show or expo. As a rule, prices, financing and terms of sale are better during boat show season. The healthy competition between dealers prompts them to offer the best discounts on the previous year’s models and attractive specials to spur sales of their new models. From January 12-14, boat dealers from three states will fill over 130,000 square feet at Cook Convention Center in Memphis. Additional outdoor lifestyle brands such as Airstream, Polaris, and Yamaha will be there! Garage parking is free. Corky’s Bar-B-Que will be serving up their Memphis best, and the newly renovated Sheraton has a limited number of discounted rooms for those mentioning the Expo. Country mega star Josh Turner will headline the VIP Preview party on Friday. Journey, former lead singer, Steve Augeri performs Saturday. Chad Williams will offer a presentation on Sunday’s Faith, Family, and Freedom theme.
