(PRESS RELEASE) -- It was announced today from The Cabaret Theatre inside Mohegan Sun that the Connecticut Marine Trades Association (CMTA) signed the first year's contract of a three-year agreement with Mohegan Sun to host their annual boat show in the all-new Expo Center, which is approaching its final stages of construction at the resort located in scenic Mystic Country, Connecticut. CMTA's first show at Mohegan Sun will be January 2019.

The expansion is on schedule, with an open date expected for summer 2018.

The Connecticut Marine Trades Association's trade show is set to begin in January of 2019, and this event will be CMTA's 50th annual boat show. CMTA Chairman, Ron Helbig, CMTA Executive Director, Kathleen Burns and CMTA Director and Show Committee Chair, Phil Gaudreau, among many others, all celebrated the signing along with Mohegan Sun leaders on the morning of 21 December, which included Mohegan Tribal Chairman, Kevin Red Eagle Brown, Assistant General Manager of Mohegan Sun, Jeff Hamilton and VP of Expo & Convention Sales of Mohegan Sun, John Washko.
