West Marine will be hosting its Seventh Annual New Product Review Day on Jan. 20, encouraging inventors and vendors to show up and pitch new products to be considered for sale in West Marine locations.
West Marine said it’s always on the lookout for innovative new products for boats and boaters, and inventors and innovators will have a chance to meet with West Marine category managers to pitch their product or idea throughout the day.
Peter Jelinek, divisional merchandise manager for West Marine, said West Marine is always looking for the next big idea.
“In some cases when we are presented with a great idea by a vendor or individual who does not have the means to develop that idea into a finished product, we will partner with that vendor or individual to bring the product to market,” Jelinek said.
Products chosen will be sold through the company’s website, online catalog and by phone at 1-800-BOATING
