Marine13 is expected to become the most important business-to-business event for the marine industry in Australia as well as the SE Asia/SW Pacific region in 2013. The conference will provide an expansive program of more than 50 sessions across two full days.
Marine13 will explain current trends in consumer behaviour, examine ways for marine businesses to harness the online world, deliver practical guidance on tackling development and planning problems, show how to drive business from boat show investments, provide tools to connect with non-boaters and convert them: with a theme of Boating for the Future, Marine13 is all about setting a new course for the industry, providing the resources to stay on track and sustain a successful marine industry.
An extensive panel of highly experienced, knowledgeable and well-known Australian and international speakers, from the marine industry and other leading consumer sectors, will provide information, education and inspiration. One will leave Marine13 with a vast range of new knowledge, eager to try out the tips one has picked up and push his business forward in to the future.
