The Australian Superyacht and Marine Export Conference (ASMEX) is generating keen worldwide interest as registrations open. The 2012 ASMEX has brought about considerable interest and enquiry following the success of the inaugural 2011 Conference.

ASMEX 2012 registrations are now open. The Australian Marine Export Group and Superyacht Australia are very aware that in the current economic climate a conference such as this is important for everyone.

AIMEX CEO MaryAnne Edwards said 'Whilst it is impossible to predict the future it is imperative for businesses to better understand the current operating environment and where future opportunities and sales may come from.'

To this end the ASMEX organizers are pleased to announce that The Superyacht Report will be presenting the results of their ‘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. 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.


Another significant topic of discussion will be the positive progress with policies and regulation surrounding the Superyacht industry in Australia, particularly developments with the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) and Australian Customs.

An exciting array of international and Australian speakers will feature in the programme which will be out shortly.

The social programme 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 and intimating an exciting night has been planned.

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. Registrations can be completed via the Superyacht Australia website and the AIMEX website.
