AIMEX - Australian stand at Dubai Boat Show 2008 AIMEX ©
Australian marine manufacturers and service providers will again have strong representation at the Dubai International Boat Show, 3-7 March, via their presence within the Australian Pavilion, organized by the Australian International Marine Export Group (AIMEX).

The Australian pavilion has grown in size and cements Australia’s position as a key player in the global market.

Twenty-nine Australian marine industry companies will be represented at the show, staged 3-7 March. The show will be a premier platform for AIMEX members to take advantage of opportunities in the emerging Gulf marine market. Despite the current economic climate, the marine export market in Dubai is still seen as having considerable potential.

'There is no question the Middle East is an emerging maritime market offering opportunities across the UAE, Qatar, Bahrain and Kuwait to name a few. These areas in the Middle East have highly active tourism and trade hubs that can support long term maritime ventures' said James Wyndham, Trade Commissioner and Deputy Consul General of Dubai.

The Middle East is the only region in the world that can boast such a huge level of investment in waterfront developments. These massive waterside developments in both Dubai and the surrounding region are generating increased demand for leisure boats, equipment and associated services.



Dubai International Boat Show is the largest leisure marine exhibition in the Middle East. Now in its 16th year, the show continues to be a great opportunity for AIMEX members.

AIMEX is the peak body for the Australian marine export industry, having more than 100 of Australia’s most successful marine companies as members. The members encompass a huge range of marine products and services with manufacturers, designers, consultants, service providers and boat show organizers.

The AIMEX members exhibiting in Dubai include Aqualuma Underwater Lighting, Ausrunner Cruisers, Austral Propellers, Azurra Yachts, Central Coast Marine Installations, Coursemaster Autopilots, d’Albora Marinas, David Bentley Industrial Design, Dermody Diving and Marine Services, Dynamic Products, Fixtech Marine Solutions, GME, Hydrive Engineering, LeisureCat Australia, Mackay Multi-Link, Marina Protection Systems, MultiPanel, Patriot Marine, Poly Flex, Pyrotek Soundguard, Riviera Marine, Sailfish Catamarans, Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, Seawind Catamarans, Southern Stainless, Spear Green Design, Steber International, Superior Jetties and Theodore Marine.
