Registration for the recreational boating industry's annual advocacy event, the American Boating Congress, is now open to all industry stakeholders. The American Boating Congress (ABC) will return to Washington, D.C. from May 8-10, 2023, bringing together all segments of the recreational boating industry to share its collective voice on Capitol Hill and address pressing matters for the industry. Following the return of a successful in-person ABC in 2022, the NMMA will welcome the industry back to The Wharf, D.C. at the Intercontinental Hotel.

Early-bird pricing is available through April 1, 2023. Stakeholders may register here or at the link below.

These meetings help elected officials understand your position before they vote on issues that affect our industry."
