What is the CWR Dealer Training & Expo?

The CWR Dealer Training & Expo is a 4-day training and networking event that focuses on dealer education. This is not a direct sales event, but there will be incentives, raffles, and giveaways during the manufacturer training sessions and Expo. We firmly believe that education is the key to long-term success. After hosting several highly-acclaimed expositions elsewhere in the country, CWR, with the support of our manufacturers, representatives, and industry trade groups, is excited to provide this opportunity once again in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Who will be in Attendance?

There will be over 100 manufacturers at the Expo promoting their latest and greatest products with displays and demos at each booth. With dealers from all over the country attending, there will be plenty of business-building and dealer-vendor networking taking place. 

Why do you need to sign up NOW?

Classroom space is limited for manufacturer training sessions and is filled on a first-come, first-served basis. There will be plenty of extra “face time” during the Expo with manufacturer representatives that are available to inform you about new products and promotions. Register early and take advantage of the $99 hotel rates that are only available until January 25th.


The event takes place February 6-9 and is broken up into four days of training. On Monday, Basic NMEA 2000 MEI (Marine Electronics Installer) Training is being offered for just $450. Be sure to register early as this course has limited spaces. Tuesday through Thursday will feature a multitude of training sessions that vary from 1 to 3 hours each. On Wednesday, training will be offered in the morning with the Expo opening at 1:00pm and a cocktail reception from 4:00-7:00pm.


The 7th New Jersey CWR Dealer Training & Expo will be taking place once again at the Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel. Discover endless possibilities at Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel. The hotel's ideal location, spacious accommodations and smart amenities make it a favored choice among in-the-know travelers.
