Countdown to first ever Australian International Marine Conference

Marine 13, the first ever Australian international conference and exhibition for boating is now less than 12 months away.

President of the Boating Industries Alliance Australia (BIAA) Darren Vaux said that the recently announced partnership supported by the NSW government was the final tick to enable Sydney to host this major international event.

'We’ve wrapped existing marina and marine safety conferences into Marine13 and added a recreational boating stream. So we have finally created a single platform to drive forward the recreational boating agenda into the next decade. We are bringing together leaders from around the world in the streams of marinas, boating safety and recreational boating to deliver a program benefiting both the marine industry business sector and government agencies that are involved in recreational boating.'

Transport for NSW is the principal partner for the conference. Howard Glenn, from Transport’s Office of Boating Safety & Maritime Affairs, said the conference would provide an ideal opportunity to deal with a range of topical safety issues from skipper responsibility to lifejackets.

'The value of sharing information and ideas cannot be underestimated, especially if it means helping to make boating safer and more enjoyable,' Mr Glenn said.

President of the Marina Industries Association of Australia (MIAA) Andrew Chapman said he has been buoyed by the extent of very positive industry feedback supporting this landmark event.

'The creation of Marine13 is a reflection of the growing cooperation and maturity of the marine sector in Australia. As with many industry sectors competing for the discretionary dollar, we need to cooperate to compete effectively in an increasingly global market. Attendance at Marine13 is a must for anyone serious about growing their business or involvement in the marine sector.'

Marine13 is scheduled to be held at the Sydney Convention and Entertainment Centre from 28 to 30 April 2013.
