As part of the ISAF Sailing World Cup (Sail Melbourne), the Summit will be bringing known personalities and entities in the sport of sailing in an attempt to sustain momentum following a stellar performance by the Australian sailing contingent in the 2012 London Olympic Games.

The 11th International Sailing Summit (ISS) to be held as part of the ISAF Sailing World Cup, Sail Melbourne is only three days away and final tickets are still remaining for the most important marine business event of the year.

Supported by the State Government of Victoria, the ISS will be held at Sandringham Yacht Club on Monday December 3, 2012 and will see sport and industry join forces to explore continued growth in sailing following Australia’s Olympic success in London.

The Victorian Minister for Manufacturing, Exports and Trade, the Hon. Richard Dalla-Riva MLC said, 'We are looking forward to supporting this year’s Summit and assisting the industry to capitalise on our golden sailing year.

'Leading into its third decade, the Summit brings together the best minds in the business and is set to make a positive impact on the future of the sailing and marine industry.'

The International Sailing Summit is a worldwide industry forum bringing together the best in the business to drive positive change and promote sailing on a global scale. In particular, this year’s Summit will focus on core areas including driving mass participation, creating a sustainable marine industry and the impact of new media and technologies to support industry growth and development.

Don’t miss your chance to see international keynote speaker and former Executive Director of Sail America, Jonathan Banks, Boating Industry Association of Australia (BIAA) President, Darren Vaux, High Performance Director of the Australian Sailing Team, Peter Conde and America’s Cup sailing legend John Bertrand. These industry experts will share innovation and ideas for growing both participation in sailing and the industry’s contribution to the global economy.

John Bertrand, who will discuss converting Olympic success into increased participation said, 'Following Australia’s great success at the Olympics, the industry has the catalysts it needs for growth and change. We are leading the way for the future of sailing.'

New addition to the program, Tim Reid from Small Business Big Marketing will present seven Marketing Wake Up Calls to assist the industry to identify the gaps and opportunities in the new evolving marketplace, while General Manager of Tigerspike Melbourne, Zac Jacobs will discuss export marketing and the potential of mobile technologies.

The conference will be followed by an Official International Sailing Summit Dinner with two-time Olympic gold medal winner and six-time 470 world champion sailor Malcolm Page.

Founder of the ISS, Alistair Murray said, 'The next 12 months is a ripe opportunity for the industry to make the most of sailing’s greatest ever Olympic success. I look forward to welcoming both sport and industry to this year’s Summit as we realise our vision of taking the sport of sailing to new realms.'
