The increasing role of women in the marine industry is acknowledged by Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show with a new series of activities - Women on Water.

The 23rd Show, staged at Sanctuary Cove in Queensland, Australia, will host a series of events and activities to celebrate Women on Water.

This includes seminars, fashion parades, skipper training aimed at women by a female skipper and female-focused lunches with entertainment and giveaways. Show dates are Thursday, May 19 to Sunday, May 22 from 9am to 5pm daily.

Sanctuary Cove General Manager Events and Marketing, Sue Thomson, says research shows women are an increasingly important marketing sector for consumer spending and wealth.

'The Boston Consulting Group has found women control $US20 trillion in consumer spending around the world and the figure is growing annually. The study found women take care of household finances in many instances,' she said. Other research indicates disposable incomes are highest among women aged 45 to 54 years in the US and in the next decade, US women will control two-thirds of the consumer wealth in that country.

'Our Women on Water program recognises the role of women in decision making – whether it be expenditure on a new boat or the trend of women to set up their own businesses.

'Each year we try to keep the Show relevant to both the marine industry and those interested to be involved with boating. This initiative reflects changing market trends,' she said. Most events within the Women on Water program are free, included within the Boat Show ticket price. Some lunch events require bookings and payments.

As part of the Women on Water program, the Queensland Marine Training Services will provide two skipper training sessions each day at 11am and 2pm aimed at women aboard a 42ft Steber vessel. As numbers are limited, bookings are essential via Sanctuary Cove on (07) 55 77 6011 (+61 7 55 77 6011).

In other news, details of the Marine Queensland fishing and boating seminars have been released.
The fishing program offers a range of topics by industry professionals including 'Big Tailor from Surf Beaches'; 'Gold Coast Spotties and Spaniards'; 'Wild Caught Barra – Kakadu to the Pilbara'; 'Kayak Fishing in the Upper Estuaries Regions' and 'Planning that Round Australia Fishing Trip.'

Boating seminars include 'Boat Security' and 'Boat Handling Tips' and topics on current issues impacting the Australian marine industry with 'Bio Regional Planning – Marine Closures and Exclusion Zones' and an 11am daily session on 'Grey Imports – The Pitfalls of Importing Your Own'. All boating and fishing seminars are free, included as part of visitor Boat Show entry tickets.

The Show currently has 320 exhibitors with 46 world and Australian marine product and service launches confirmed with many more to come.
