ASMEX 2020 CANCELLED
Wednesday 18 March 2020
ASMEX 2020 organisers regret to advise that a decision was taken this morning at an Extraordinary AIMEX Board Meeting held to discuss the developing situation of COVID-19 and as such the ASMEX Conference has been cancelled for 2020.
As the organisers of ASMEX, the Australian International Marine Export Group (AIMEX), the Australian Commercial Marine Group (ACMG) and Superyacht Australia, we emphasise the health and well-being of our members, sponsors, speakers, staff and other stakeholders as a priority.
With the Australian Prime Minister’s announcement this morning, Wednesday 18 March, declaring an indefinite ban on indoor gatherings of 100 people or more, this has prevented ASMEX 2020 from proceeding. ASMEX 2020 was scheduled to take place at Sanctuary Cove, in Queensland from 18–19 May 2020. Ticket holders will be contacted shortly regarding a refund.
The Australian Marine Industry Awards will still be awarded this year. The application period has now been extended with a closing date of 30 June 2020 and the format for their announcement currently being revised and rescheduled for later in the calendar year.
Don’t go too far away. Check back in with us later FOR ASMEX 2021 DATES.
THE ULTIMATE EVENT FOR THE AUSTRALIAN MARINE INDUSTRY
tackling real issues through quality speakers and informative debate
The annual Australian Superyacht, Marine Export & Commercial Marine Industry (ASMEX) conference takes place at the InterContinental Resort, Sanctuary Cove.
As the flagship conference in Australia for the marine export 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 nine years and continues to attract a significant presence of both Australian and international delegates and speakers.
We are very excited about the recent passing by the Senate of the Special Recreational Vessel legislation that will enable foreign superyachts to charter in Australia through a coastal trading temporary licence. This change will of course have a positive effect to the marine industry in terms of job creation and in economic spend through the increased provision of marine services, in particular due to the increase in superyacht visitation activity in the Pacific region spurred on by the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics and the America’s Cup in Auckland New Zealand in March 2021.
Come and join us at the next ASMEX Conference and be part of the lively discussion and debate that lead this industry.
