The 2013 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS) is now open to exhibitors following the official prospectus released to industry on November 1.

With 2013 marking the annual event’s 25th anniversary, next year’s bumper Boat Show will take place at the award-winning Gold Coast resort-style community from Thursday May 23 to Sunday May 26, with a long list of returning and new exhibitors expected from across Australia and overseas.

Mulpha Sanctuary Cove general manager of marketing and events, Sue Thomson, said the team was receiving lots of interest from exhibitors prior to applications opening.

'SCIBS has long been regarded in the industry as a must-do event,' said Ms Thomson.

'Last year we had more than 320 exhibitors showcasing and I believe this year we will go above and beyond that, particularly given we’re celebrating Boat Show’s quarter century.

'We have a range of spaces available that can cater to both small and large scale exhibitors so we expect to have a broad cross-section of the boating industry at the 2013 show.'

Sanctuary Cove executive general manager Keith Allardice said the 2013 show would see the SCIBS team take on a more interactive role with exhibitors, working closely to ensure returning exhibitors’ needs were catered to, and new participants were welcomed with open arms.

Mr Allardice said the appointment of new sales, sponsorship and events manager for SCIBS, Johan Hasser, was crucial to achieving this goal.

'The event is entering a milestone year and we are thrilled to have Johan aboard to help us ensure it is an innovative and rewarding show for all concerned,' he said.

With 15 years experience in sales, marketing and event communications, Mr Hasser said he was excited to be on board for what is shaping up to be a big event in 2013.

'We are already receiving positive feedback from exhibitors regarding the plans for next year’s show, with many returning companies looking to take even more space than last year,' said Mr Hasser.

'Being the show’s 25th anniversary, we are looking forward to putting on something truly special, for both exhibitors and visitors to enjoy and we are keen to excite the next generation of boating enthusiasts by attracting more families along to next year’s show.'

SCIBS has positioned itself over the years as Australia’s foremost marine trade display, which gives the community, boating enthusiasts and marine industry representatives the rare opportunity to network and view the latest and greatest boating and marine products on offer.

Boating brands, products and services will be on display in the Sanctuary Cove marina, throughout the pavilions and in Sanctuary Cove’s Marine Village during the four day event.

A raft of initiatives and attractions will be added to the program to celebrate the 25th anniversary for both visitors and exhibitors, making next year’s show the 'must attend' event on the Asia-Pacific boating community calendar.

Tickets and holiday packages for SCIBS 2013 will go on sale online to the public late November. The official SCIBS 2013 Prospectus is now available. For more information on exhibiting, visit www.sanctuarycoveboatshow.com.au

The $A2 billion Sanctuary Cove, located on the northern Gold Coast, is Australia’s leading and most successful master-planned community.

Featuring two 18 hole championship golf courses, a 300 berth marina, five-star InterContinental Hotel, Country Club including full fitness centre, tennis courts and 25m swimming pool, Sanctuary Cove is also home to some of the most diverse waterfront, golf course fronting or hilltop residential house and land options on the Gold Coast.

At the heart of the community is the Marine Village – Sanctuary Cove’s very own waterfront commercial, retail and dining precinct, with more than 80 tenancies.

Sanctuary Cove was acquired by current owners Mulpha Sanctuary Cove (Developments) Pty Limited in 2002. MSCD is an arm of Mulpha Australia Limited, which is a subsidiary of Malaysian listed Mulpha International BHD.

Mulpha continues to reinvest in the multi award-winning Sanctuary Cove, ensuring it maintains its enviable reputation of a world-class community with unparalleled lifestyle options.
