Superyacht Australia to Organise Conference

Superyacht Australia is to organise the first ever Superyacht and Marine Export Conference immediately prior to the 2011 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show in Australia.

The event (ASMEX) will run over 17 and 18 May, to bring together, service providers and marine industry manufacturers.

A key focus of the conference will be promoting Australia as a key cruising destination plus looking at the excellent refit and repair services and facilities available.
The conference will address key issues facing the Australian Superyacht and Export industry and explore current and future opportunities.

SYBA CEO MaryAnne Edwards said: “This is an exciting initiative SYBA have been working on for some months. It is designed to profile the Australian Superyacht Industry and provide an excellent platform for the industry both in Australia and globally to network, share ideas, understand issues and work with key industry stakeholders to look at ways to grow the Australian Superyacht sector. The conference will also provide an overview of key global markets and in particular how Australia, NZ, Asia and the Pacific can work together to drive more business for the region.”

The conference will be the key Superyacht and Export specific event in Australia for 2011 and will bring together the main players in the industry value chain. It is envisaged the conference will attract a strong number of industry from both Australia and overseas
Superyacht Australia will be distributing further information in regards to programme content and guest speakers over the next two weeks.
