AIMEX members will have a strong presence at PACIFIC 2013 in Sydney next week and also at Asia Pacific Maritime in Singapore in March 2014.

AIMEX CEO, MaryAnne Edwards commented that AIMEX continues to ensure they are providing adequate benefits to their members and consequently due to demand they are now reviewing the level of profile and opportunities for their members who are focusing on the commercial and defence sector.

'Businesses today must diversify to survive and currently there are many opportunities in the commercial and defence space. Many AIMEX members’ have products and services targeted at this sector and are already doing some good business globally in this market,' Ms Edwards said.

AIMEX members are being recognised for their innovation in the commercial sector with VEEM Limited, P&W Marine (Cameron Engineering) and Stebercraft International all shortlisted for the inaugural Maritime Australia Limited Industry Innovation Award.
