Erwin Bamps, Chief Operating Officer for Gulf Craft in the UAE will be speaking at the ASMEX conference to be held 22/23 May at Sanctuary Cove, immediately prior to the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show.

His presentation will cover operating a sustainable business in this current global climate, his thoughts on the UAE market and his predictions for the future. Coming from a strong background working for global businesses Bamps has ambitious plans for Gulf Craft and has certainly been successful in driving this brand global over the past few years.

Bamps says 'I consider people and negotiation skills to be my biggest assets to create & grow brands and to improve bottom-line profitability. I am a strong supporter of flat management structures and management-by-walking-around, I tend to thrive in recession times, where fast and hands-on decision making, constant risk control and clear opportunity identification can gain you essential market share increase.'

Bamps will have a strong message to deliver to the conference and his experience and success certainly qualifies him as someone worth listening to.

Today, Gulf Craft ranks as one of the world leading manufacturers and exporters of fiberglass leisure craft, one of a handful of boat-builders in the world with the capability to produce yachts of more than 100 feet in overall length.
Gulf Craft builds multi-decked motor-cruisers that rank with the best in the world in terms of design, quality and materials. While Gulf Craft is a local UAE company staunchly proud of its regional heritage, it is nonetheless armed with a global view and ambitious plans to expand its portfolio worldwide.

Gulf Craft is the Middle East's and Africa's largest and leading producer of fiberglass boats and yachts, exporting over 70% of its production to 40 countries through the Majesty Yachts, Oryx and Silvercraft brands. Founded in The United Arab Emirates in 1982, Gulf Craft today produces vessels ranging from 20 feet runabouts and sport fishing boats, to 135 feet luxury motor yachts, with an annual production capacity of more than 400 boats.

Gulf Craft is a brand recognized internationally for its reliability in the marine manufacturing industry, innovative design layouts and styling for the regional and international markets. Use of the latest technologies, such as sandwich construction and vacuum infusion processes, water-jet drives engineered on large yachts, and gyro marine stabilizers, distinguishes Gulf Craft products in the market.

MaryAnne Edwards AIMEX CEO said 'Having someone like Erwin addressing the conference with his dynamic style, his record of success and knowledge of the UAE and global markets is invaluable for the Australian marine industry. It is very exciting as we have pulled together an amazing line up of speakers from across the globe. In this climate this injection of enthusiasm, knowledge and insights is what we all need.'
