There's a week's worth of reading on MarineBusiness-World today.

As well as covering the local scene, with a report back from the Rosehill Trailerboat Show, the launch of the Australian Sustainable Seafood Guide, and an assortment of products new to the market here and in NZ, we bring you news from other regions inlcuding a wrap up of Miami International Boat Show by Bob Wonders, covering the brands and products awarded for Innovation and Australian presence at the show, and a preview of Abu Dhabi Yacht Show - now considered one of the most significant on the global calendar with a sole focus on superyachts.

At this year's Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, superyachts will also be on the agenda, in the form of the The Australian Superyacht and Marine Export Industry Conference (ASMEX), a two-day event 17 and 18 May, bringing together key industry stakeholders, boat builders, service providers and marine industry manufacturers.
Speakers and conference details will be announced in the next weeks.

A detailed brochure of the Marinas 2011 conference has just been released and is available for download on the MIAA website www.marinas.net.au
