Boat show sails away with sales and attendance boost news

Posted by Jason Mudd

St. Augustine Boat Show

Seeking to increase attendance and generate more revenue from its St. Augustine Boat Show, the Marine Industry Association of Northeast Florida hired Axia Public Relations. During the campaign, Axia implemented an integrated marketing plan which included print ads, billboards, news releases/media coverage, electronic billboards, event program content, electronic ads and a website to publicize the boat show. Axia’s efforts produced higher-than-expected attendance as well as a greater profit for the association and, most important, supported millions of dollars in boat and marine service sales at the event.

Several boat shows compete for buyers in northeast Florida. That's why the Marine Industry Association of Northeast Florida sought to increase attendance and generate more revenue during its second St. Augustine Boat Show.

To meet these goals, Axia Public Relations wrote and implemented an integrated marketing plan, which included a regional media plan, print ads, billboards, electronic ads, news releases/media coverage, electronic billboards, event program content and a Web site to publicize the boat show.

Using the event Web site’s tracking and reporting tools, Axia analyzed the site traffic daily and used the information to modify the media plan and schedule. Axia’s efforts produced higher-than-expected attendance as well as a greater profit for the association and, most importantly, supported millions of dollars in boat and marine service sales at the event.
