Judges are eagerly awaiting applications for the prestigious Australian Marine Industry Awards which opened last week. The awards will be presented at the Australian Marine Industry Awards Gala Dinner taking place on the evening of Tuesday 19 May, 2020 at the InterContinental Resort, Sanctuary Cove.
As part of the annual Australian Marine Industry Awards, the Australian International Marine Export Group (AIMEX) is pleased to announce a new award for 2020 focusing on developing the youth in the industry. The ‘Apprentice of the Year’ Award will be added to an already extensive line up of existing award categories.
The Australian parliament passed legislation through the Senate with bipartisan support enabling foreign superyachts to charter in Australian waters. The special recreational vessel legislation will allow superyachts use of a coastal trading temporary licence, allowing commercial charter activities.
The 32nd edition of the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS 2020), to be held May 21-24, will benefit from an expanded marina and various onshore upgrades which are all gearing up for next year’s event to match the success of SCIBS 2019.
