Rivergate Boat Show debuts, IBEX on now, internet media leading growth

What a wonderful world is the online media landscape!

Just today, I have had more than a handful of people contact me about amending, tweaking, updating and adding to stories we are running on MarineBusiness-World.com and our other titles, including Sail-World and Powerboat-World. In a jiffy, this can be done and disseminated to readers (avid, all of them) around the world.

This week in the US, internet media employment has surpassed TV broadcasting, having passed magazines, radio and other traditional media six months ago. Only newspapers employ more, and they are in decline, according to AdAge.com

The age of 24/7 news may have its downside (we seem to always be working/catching up with news!) but for those whose interests and livelihoods revolve around current information, analysis and results, your demand is creating a brave and responsive new world indeed.

All brands benefit from an online presence (a website that's interactive, social media strategy, customer e-news) and effective, creative online advertising.

If you want to take up the opportunity to reach our 2.2 million (and rising) readers, get in touch.

Somali pirates are the scourge of commercial and leisure boats  .. ©

Back to the news: We feature an informative piece on piracy off the coast of Africa and also prevalent in Asian waters. Dryad Maritime predicts that despite industry optimism of 2012, the end of the South West monsoon season will see the resumption of pirate attacks in the Gulf of Aiden, impacting on not just intrepid sailors and container ships, but all of us as insurance and costs on goods at a retail level are eventually affected.

In the wake of a successful 2012 Auckland on Water Boat Show, there's a flurry of marine events on at the moment - Genoa in Italy about to begin, IBEX in Kentucky USA, and closer to home, Rivergate International Boat Show launching its first edition this weekend in Brisbane.

Rivergate International Boat Show  Rivergate Brisbane

Along with a strong line up of exhibitors, there will be a massive program of interesting events for visitors including River cruises, seafood, fashion, and a special auction, Sunday 7 October under the expert auspices of Adrian Seiffert of Marine Auctions. There's something for everybody, so check out www.rivergateboatshow.com.au for all the details and which companies are exhibiting.

Also in sunny Queensland, Riviera has announced it will commemorate its 5000th boat in 32 years with a special gala dinner and party held during the Gold Coast Marine Expo, November 2.

The home of Riviera on Queensland's Gold Coast will play host to the gala event celebrating the launch of the 5000th Riviera on November 2nd 2012  Riviera .

Riviera's state-of-the-art Coomera facility on Queensland's Gold Coast will be transformed into a five-star entertainment precinct, a ticketed event open to all boating enthusiasts who would like to celebrate this historic milestone with Riviera. It sounds like it will be a massive event, well worth the trip to Coomera!

Riviera is no newcomer to hosting an epic Gala Dinner. This year's will celebrate the company's 5000th boat!  Riviera .

Much more to come later this week, so pop by for more on this ever-changing and expertly adapting marine industry.

Have a great week!
