The Australian International Marine Export Group (AIMEX) continues to drive an active marketing campaign to support the Australian marine industry given the current challenges of the economic climate.

In line with the recent merger of Superyacht Australia and AIMEX, AIMEX has this year, for the first time incorporated two Superyacht Industry award categories within the award program. The continuing support of Club Marine highlights the significance of these awards.

Club Marine is a major player in the Australian Marine Industry and their ongoing support ensures the marine industry gets the recognition it deserves both nationally and internationally

The AIMEX marketing campaign is having positive affects as the spotlight continues to be on the Australian Marine Industry and the innovation, skills and expertise that Australian companies are becoming renown for. It is these qualities that always ensure a high calibre & number of award entries Australia is seen as a country that has been least affected by the global financial crisis with a marine sector that continues to drive innovation and is attracting significant interest from global buyers who want the security of dealing with a resilient marine sector.

These awards reinforce Australian Marine Industry and the Superyacht industry’s commitment to excellence

Australian Marine Exporters and Superyacht Industry product and service providers are encouraged by Club Marine to take on this opportunity as it can only add value to the business, first by providing a good analysis of the business and second through the additional publicity being involved with the awards creates.

The judges announced for 2012 are Barry Jenkins - a well known marine industry personality, Iain Murray - CEO of the Australian Export Institute, Ken Evans – previously Mercury Marine and currently working in the industry as a consultant and Dugald Anthony a senior representative from Austrade who has considerable experience and understanding of the marine sector.
