Annual Convention


If you repair, manufacture, or sell boat propellers, or you are a provider of products and services to propeller repair professionals, this convention should be a must on your annual calendar of marine industry events.

NMPA members from across the U.S., Canada and internationally gather for two days of fast-paced technical seminars, presentations on new products and technology, hands-on demonstrations, tips and tricks from seasoned propeller repair experts, certification testing, information on business best management practices, business-to-business networking and camaraderie.


The Convention offers NMPA Associate Members a prime opportunity to exhibit their products and services and meet with their customers directly in a business friendly environment. Manufacturers, product vendors and propeller repair shops are eager to network and talk shop. The Convention is an excellent venue for target marketing through sponsorship which shows a commitment to supporting the association and industry.
