The National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) in the US is to host its annual International Marine Electronics Conference & Expo next year in Seattle, Washington. The three-day event will be held at the Bellevue Hilton Hotel from September 26-28, 2017.

Last year’s sold-out conference was held in Naples, Florida.

"Our 2017 NMEA Conference and Expo will focus on training, new product introductions, and technology developments in marine electronics," said Johnny Lindstrom, chairman of the NMEA's board of directors. "This event also provides dealers and manufacturers nationwide with the best face-to-face contact and networking discussions of the year."

The annual NMEA Conference & Expo is said to be the largest event in North America for the marine electronics trade.
