Judges on the lookout for companies that have demonstrated real innovation in marketing to end users

2021 Boat Builder Awards logo

Connecting with the boating consumer through the pandemic has presented a unique set of challenges, forcing boatbuilders to rethink tried and tested routes to market. The most successful retail and marketing initiatives of the past 12 months have employed increasingly dynamic ways to capture consumer interest.

The Retail Marketing Initiative award category, sponsored by Kohler, recognises advances in retail marketing where the builder, working alone or with a dealer, has demonstrated real innovation in marketing to end users. Examples could include campaigns, boat show initiatives, successful partnerships, dealer promotions and responses to Covid-19 restrictions.
