Today, September 2, 2013, saw the Australian International Marine Export Group (AIMEX) and Superyacht Australia reveal the dates for the fourth Australian Superyacht and Marine Export Conference (ASMEX), representing the key conference for the marine export as well as superyacht industry in Australia. The next year’s event will take place at Sanctuary Cove’s InterContinental Resort in Queensland, running on Tuesday 20th and Wednesday 21st May.
For the fourth consecutive year Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show has partnered with the ASMEX Conference realising the additional value this conference brings to the show. The conference will be staged immediately prior to the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, show dates are May 22 – 25th.
The Sales, Events and Sponsorship Manager of Mulpha Sanctuary Cove Johan Hasser is thrilled with the continued partnership. “ASMEX is one of the leading marine export conferences in Australia and it’s a great event to have on site at Sanctuary Cove in the lead up to the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show. The event has gained significant momentum over the past three years and is set to attract an even greater presence of international delegates in its fourth annual meeting in 2014. The conference has become renowned for its provision of quality information, valuable networking and providing the industry with opportunities, solutions and outcomes. Logistically, many of our exhibitors and international delegations are already on site so it makes for a very productive and successful industry networking week for attendees and the inclusion of the ASMEX Awards celebrations add to the excitement and exposure for all key stakeholders,” John said.
AIMEX and Superyacht Australia organise the ASMEX conference for businesses focused on the marine export and superyacht sectors providing a platform for sharing of information and the opportunity to do business with industry. The 2013 delegate list comprised of a high calibre of industry representation with many of the delegates representing key international boat builders and distributors providing unique opportunities to do business with and learn about new markets.
“The ASMEX conference was a very well organised and attended event. I was most impressed with the diversity of attendees who represented the full breadth of the marine industry in Australia. As part of the networking opportunities I was able to seek out technical and market opinions regarding our products, in addition there were some important questions that I have had in my mind for a while, that were able to be answered by the various guest speakers and attendees,” said Mark Miocevich, Managing Director of VEEM Limited.
Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show is an annual four-day event staged at Sanctuary Cove on Australia’s Gold Coast. The Show displays a wide selection of marine products and services including superyachts, luxury power cruisers, power and sail multihulls, trailerable craft, kayaks, jet skis and watercraft plus engines, electronics, navigational gear and marine services.
The ASMEX programme is being developed currently with a strong emphasis on ensuring a focused and informative conference.
