ADDRESSING THE real INDUSTRY 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, has 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 returned 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 by attending superyacht, export and commercial boat shows across the globe.
