By now you will have heard plenty about Marine13 – the first whole-of-industry conference and trade exhibition for the boating, marina and boating safety industries. But have you heard that over 420 boating industry professionals will now be gathering in Sydney next Sunday, 28 April for this major international event?
The expansive program of seminars, workshops, briefings, networking, trade exhibition and of course the conference awards dinner, have clearly confirmed to them that there will be no other event like Marine13 this year for the boating industry in Australia.
It's not too late to join them. Have a look at your calendar now and see if you can fit it in – 28-30 April – or even just make it to one day. Then go to www.marine13.com to reserve your place.

As a member of the boating industry family, the program has been developed specifically to help companies just like yours deal with the issues all are currently facing: the need to grow boating participation to grow business; the need to work with a consistently strong local dollar; how to adapt to the impact of the internet in shaping consumer purchase decisions; how to get the most out of boat shows; how to recruit the right staff; how to stay on track with consumer legislation; how to utilise the communications techniques that the modern consumer is embracing.
Marine13 will provide the answers in the form of advice, guidance and knowledge, all based on the hard-won, been-there-done-that experiences of a world-class panel of industry and other leading consumer sector experts.
You owe it to yourself, your business, your colleagues and employees to make sure you're fully up to speed with the latest issues, have heard the best in the business on how they succeed and arm yourself with new ideas, techniques and contacts for driving your business forward into 2013 and beyond.
Marine13 is all about Boating for the Future, and we are confident it will be one of the best investments you make in your business this year. We look forward to seeing you in Sydney and welcoming you to Marine13.
