'The Committee is extremely pleased to have achieved this milestone making it probably the biggest marine industry, business to business event in the Southern Hemisphere. We are delighted with the quality and relevance of the 47 conference topics, the national and international speakers and the 45 exhibitors that have invested in the event.'
