The Australian Superyacht & Marine Export Conference (ASMEX) will take place on Queensland’s Gold Coast, 20-23 May, and has already attracted a large number of delegates from around Australia and internationally.

The high calibre group of speakers and industry proponents gathered from around the world will present up to the minute figures and insight relevant to your sector, covering topics from free trade, changes in legislation and insurance issues, to the opinions of front-line charter brokers and what their high-net worth clients are looking for.

As well as the informative sessions and seminars, plus valuable networking events, ASMEX will deliver to all registered delegates a free three month subscription to international marine journal, IBI Plus.

Another addition to the program is a high profile key note speaker confirmed for the Tuesday of the program – details have not yet been released, but will make this year’s event a compelling business building fixture that will prove vital to all levels of the industry.

On the second night of the conference, the Superyacht Australia Hall of Fame Award and the 2013 Club Marine Australian Marine Export and Superyacht Awards will be presented at the Gala Dinner, to be held at the InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort.

AIMEX and Superyacht Australia CEO MaryAnne Edwards said: 'ASMEX has been designed to be cost effective, concise, relevant and most importantly, it will help drive revenue for the business.



'ASMEX is designed by industry for industry and we know every presentation is timely, relevant and directly will add value to the industry and individual business. That is why virtually everyone who went to the event last year is registering again and companies with iconic Australian and international brands should make sure they attend.'

From experts in each region, you will learn how to gain access to opportunities in the burgeoning markets of Asia, the Middle East and South Africa, as well as the potential in emerging markets of Europe – Turkey, Croatia and Russia, plus some practical strategies to manage the strong Aussie dollar and vital marketing tactics tailored to the marine sector.

The head of Marine NZ, Peter Busfield, will discuss the synergies between Australian and New Zealand industries and the opportunities that exist in the region.

Tourism Australia will reveal its long-term strategy to drive inbound tourism, and, with the federal election looming, the Shadow Minister for Tourism and Regional Development, the Hon Bob Baldwin MP will shed light on the Opposition’s commitment to marine export, manufacturing and tourism.

Registration is $395 (inc GST) for non-members and $285 for AIMEX & Superyacht Australia members and can be completed via www.superyacht-australia.com and www.aimex.asn.au
