Green Blue celebrates, Survey shows Net power, Genoa & IBEX highlights

Torrential rain and floods have marked the start of the boating season on the north eastern coast of Australia, but blue skies shone on Mandurah in the west for the Club Marine Mandurah Boat Show, where AIMEX and other exhibitors report strong turnout and promising leads.

Also in the world of boat shows, we have the highlights of IBEX/MAATS and Genoa trade shows, along with some comments from those in the know who attended.

There's plenty of launches, new products, events to plan for and some startling feedback from the Sail-World worldwide survey on some pertinent sailing topics. It's not the actual comments that are astounding, but the number of responses received - nearly 1000 in just one week for a survey that on average takes 10 minutes to complete.

If your brand or company can harness this avid readership, get in touch. We can format a survey or promotion for you that delivers insight, response and above all customers.

Have a great week, wherever you are.
