THE ULTIMATE EVENT FOR THE AUSTRALIAN MARINE INDUSTRY

tackling real issues through quality speakers and informative debate
As the flagship conference in Australia for the superyacht, marine export and commercial marine industry, ASMEX continues to build on its solid reputation for delivering quality and current industry information and invaluable networking opportunities. The conference has gained significant momentum over the last ten years and continues to attract a significant presence of Australian and international delegates and speakers.
The positive changes to the Australian marine industry brought about by the Special Recreational Vessel Act whereby foreign superyachts are able to charter in Australia, have lead to the continued growth in job creation and economic spend through the provision of local marine services. Under Covid-19 border controls, entry by foreign superyachts was somewhat curtailed due to the tighter border restrictions but it was counter-balanced by the increase in the size of the domestic fleet, both in number of vessels and in overall length, with many Australian owners shipping their yachts from the northern hemisphere into home waters.
Covid restrictions in Australia created a surge in demand for recreational vessels as with many other marine markets across the globe. Marine exports have grown and markets expanded along with an increase in demand for skilled labour in the industry. This significant growth experienced in recreational marine activities together with the increased government focus on sovereign capability in the commercial and defence marine sectors has continued to buoy the industry.
Australia is open for business!
With Australian international borders now open, speakers and delegates from overseas are returning to ASMEX 2022 to reconnect with our domestic marine industry. Australian marine businesses too are embracing travel to reconnect with their international clients and industry contacts overseas.
ASMEX will continue to focus discussions on the growth possibilities of the Australian marine industry as it extends its world class expertise and innovation across all sectors. We look forward to hosting all ASMEX attendees at the InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort on Tuesday May 17 2022 for the 11th annual ASMEX Conference.
