2015 Australian Superyacht and Marine Export industry conference

Following the success of the 2014 Australian Superyacht and Marine Export industry conference the event will be held again this year at Sanctuary Cove, with an array of significant national and international speakers.

The conference is presented by the Australian International Marine Export Group and Superyacht Australia. It will run for two days on May 19 and 20, just before the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.

This provides an opportunity for industry exhibitors and stakeholders to attend the conference, which will be chaired by Martin Redmayne from The Superyacht Report in the UK.

The programme includes a cocktail party on the evening of Monday, 18 May and the prestigious 2015 Australian Marine Export and Superyacht Awards Gala Dinner on Tuesday, 19 May.

Sessions cover topics as diverse as Superyacht globalisation, selling Australian boats in the Caribbean, the unique attractions of Australia as a destination and accessing finance to grow your business internationally.

Among the international speakers is Marnix Hoekstra, a creative director of Vripack in Holland, who will discuss global trends and changes and how these will affect the design and production of boats in the next five years.

Paris Baloumis, Monaco-based marketing manager with OceanCo, will talk about the importance of branding and how to successfully market your business to the marine sector.

AIMEX has negotiated a special accommodation rate at the Intercontinental Resort, Sanctuary Cove, of $190 per night. For the full programme of speakers and social events go to
