The 2012 Australian Superyacht and Marine Export Conference (ASMEX) program is taking shape with industry heavy weights confirming their attendance and registrations flooding in from Australia, the Asia-Pacific, the US and around the world.
According to organizer, Superyacht Australia, there is keen interest to hear developments with the Manufacturing Task Force from a marine export point of view, as well as the key points from the AIMEX Business Seminars ‘returning business to health’ presentation which will provide attendees with in depth analysis of the key areas to review in business and how to make some of these critical changes to return your business to health for the future, not just to survive in the current climate.
Superyacht Australia has made several inroads with legislative hindrances affecting the ease and access to cruise in Australian waters for superyachts, and several government departments have confirmed their attendance at ASMEX to provide an update on the amendments.
ASMEX organizers are also pleased to announce that The Superyacht Report will be presenting the results of its ‘State of the Industry’ paper, giving an overview of the fleet, order book, and market activity, and highlighting the situation and the potential for Australia as a part of this.
The presentations will be delivered by internationally respected speakers, including NMMA President, Thom Dammrich, Plus Marco Struik, Managing Director of Struik & Hamerslag; a significant and well known European Yacht Interior and Refit company has confirmed his attendance at the conference and will speak about the refit and repair industry globally.
The social program for ASMEX 2012 will be a highlight again with Sevenstar Yacht Transport sponsoring the Welcome Registration by the ‘Poolside’ at the prestigious Hyatt Regency, Sanctuary Cove where guests will enjoy an evening of entertainment, fine food and wine by the candle lit lagoon. ASMEX organizers have also advised that the Conference Dinner will be at one of the Gold Coast’s well known venues.
ASMEX is the key Australian marine industry conference and provides a platform to ensure industry is kept well informed and given the opportunity for valuable networking with colleagues. The ASMEX registration fee once again has been kept to a minimum at $350 (inc GST), AIMEX and Superyacht Australia members and SCIBS exhibitors are entitled a discounted registration fee of $275.
