Sanctuary Cove 2 sleeps, killer ocean plastic, we want your stories!

What a wonderful, wide-ranging, nearly overwhelming array of stories we have this week, mostly because the industry is aflutter with preparations for this year's Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.

You'll be pleased to know, blue skies on the Gold Coast this Tuesday afternoon, so let's hope they stay clear. Sue Thomson and Phil Shaw and their team have been praying to weather gods, so cross fingers.

Among the many and varied stories this week, industry stalwart Errol Cain is proud to announce the launch of his latest venture - Australian Marine Wholesale – officially launching at Sanctuary Cove. Then there's an opportunity for prospective dealers to get onboard the US icon marque, Chaparral, with Scott O'Hare up here from Melbourne available for discussions.

Along with sponsorship of the massive, mega Pavilion A, will have a large team of journalists on the ground, filming interviews with exhibitors over the four days for immediate posting with insightful articles. Watch and read it all here later this week.

Many of our stories this week refer to new products, the events program and special offers during the show, as well as our own offer to film your story, notable guests or launch during the show.

As the Internet revolution turns to video, the MarineBusiness-World team is at the forefront.

We've conducted over 100 exclusive video interviews. The online video library across,, and now contains more than 600 video clips, played by its worldwide audience in increasing numbers.

The MarineBusiness-World news team at Sanctuary Cove will be focussing on video interviews with exhibitors, industry figures, event organisers, and personalities as well as demos, new products and quirky brand insights.
We are keen to schedule interviews, we are expecting to do more than 50 during the show, so if you have some exciting news, you have a product that is making a splash, we want to talk with you.

Please email us ASAP Jeni Bone mobile 0412 230 002 or Rob Kothe 0418 441 359.

The MarineBusiness-World journalists and photographers will be operating out of the (where else!) pavilion from the stylishly decorated Booth 40. Pop in, say ‘hi' and tell us your story. We're all ears, eyes and interest.

Show success for you all!
