ASMEX 2020 CANCELLED
Wednesday March 18, 2020
ASMEX 2020 organisers regret to advise that a decision was taken this morning at an Extraordinary AIMEX Board Meeting this morning 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. Ticketholders 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.
The next Australian Superyacht, Marine Export and Commercial Marine Conference (ASMEX) will be held at the InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort, a convenient location given its close proximity to the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show, onsite accommodation and Brisbane and the Gold Coast airports.
