International line up for Marine13

by MIA on 23 Aug 2012
. .
An impressive range of international speakers are being assembled for Marine13. The event is the first ever Australian international conference and exhibition for marinas, recreational boating and boating safety. The event is being held in Sydney April 2013.

Chairman of the Marine13 Steering Committee Jeff d’Albora said he was pleased to announce that speakers from Europe, North America and Asia are joining a strong line-up of Australian speakers for the event. 'Marine13 will primarily deliver specific sessions for the three dedicated event streams.

However there are key plenary sessions that link the streams under topics such as ‘Engaging Boaters of Today and Tomorrow’. I am particularly pleased that this session will be delivered by Thom Dammrich, President of the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) in North America.

NMMA’s ‘Discover Boating’ program is at the cutting edge of communication with new and potential boaters. Recreational boating in established markets is under pressure from a range of social economic factors including a time poor society and an aging demographic. All delegates at Marine13 will learn from the latest strategies and results arising from the NMMA’s award winning ‘Welcome to the Water’ campaign that is designed to increase participation in recreational boating'.

In the conference safety stream Jean Murray, Chair of the Canadian Safe Boating Council will be presenting in the safety subject of risk. Jean also serves on the U.S. National Safe Boating Council. During her 34 year career in the Canadian public service, Jean spent 14 years with the Canadian Coast Guard, including in the positions of Director General, Rescue, Safety and Environmental Response and Director General, Marine Navigation Services.

She was also Executive Director of the National Search and Rescue Secretariat, National Defense and Director General, Emergency Management Policy, Public Safety Canada. Jean is a strong believer in the value of collaboration and partnerships in addressing marine safety issues.

All three streams are attracting strong interest from lead personnel across many countries that are keen to share their experiences at this international event.

Further announcements of keynote speakers for will be posted on the event website www.Marine13.com by the end of August.
