For those being engaged in the marine export as well as superyacht industries, the upcoming Australian Superyacht & Marine Export Conference (ASMEX) will be crucial to updating their knowledge, adding to their arsenal of skills valuable networking. The event will take place from May 20 to 23, 2013.
The high calibre group of speakers and industry proponents gathered from around the world will present up to the minute figures and insight relevant to one’s sector, covering topics from free trade, changes in legislation and insurance issues, to the opinions of front-line charter brokers and what their high-net worth clients are looking for.
AIMEX and Superyacht Australia CEO MaryAnne Edwards said: “Companies today get bombarded with so much information and we know most have no time to read it and most of the information in reality is only pertinent for certain businesses. The thing about ASMEX is we appreciate people are time poor and if they do attend a conference like this it must be cost effective, concise, relevant and most importantly help drive revenue for the business.
“Businesses are not interested in sitting through time consuming presentations that cannot directly relate to their businesses. This is the difference with ASMEX it is designed by industry for industry and we know every presentation is timely, relevant and directly will add value to the industry and individual business.
“That is why virtually everyone who went to the event last year is registering again and companies with iconic Australian and international brands should make sure they attend.”
From experts in those regions, one will learn how to gain access to opportunities in the burgeoning markets of Asia, the Middle East and South Africa, as well as the potential in emerging markets of Europe – Turkey, Croatia and Russia, plus some practical strategies to manage the strong Aussie dollar and vital marketing tactics tailored to the marine sector.
The head of Marine NZ will discuss the synergies between Australian and New Zealand industries and the opportunities that exist in the region.
Tourism Australia will reveal its long-term strategy to drive inbound tourism, and, with the federal election looming, the Shadow Minister for Tourism and Regional Development, the Hon Bob Baldwin MP will shed light on the Opposition’s commitment to marine export, manufacturing and tourism.
ASMEX is the key event for the Australian marine export and superyacht industries, it will provide an overview of current marketing conditions, key issues, future opportunities and prime networking opportunities.
