Marine17 early bird registration now open
Get in early for savings on this year's major industry conference.
Early bird registration for the Marine17 International Conference and Trade Exhibition due to be held in Sydney in July is now open. Delegates who book early, either individually or as a group, can get substantial discounts on the registration fee by booking before 14 May. The conference runs from 30 July-1 August, 2017.
Coinciding with the opening of delegate registrations, organisers have also released details of the conference program which is now available on the website.
“Marine17 has lined up a record 60 conference sessions covering the broadest range of marine industry topics ever presented,” said committee member Nik Parker. “Delegates will hear from world-class speakers from the US, Canada, Europe and closer to home, discussing themes such as international best practice in marina design and operation, master classes in small marine dealership management, marketing and creating customer confidence, debating the sharing economy and its impact on boating, and lessons learned from boating safety messaging around the globe.
“Keynote presenters will demonstrate the power of online peer-recommendation marketing, challenge industry leaders to think about new models for boating promotion, and answer the question of what to do with old boats.”
Howard Glenn, national CEO of the BIA, said Marine17 promises to be the biggest and the best conference yet.
“The conference will continue to deliver the best intelligence, and the best information about the marine industry as well as a comprehensive look at what to expect in the years ahead,” he said.
“There will be a lot of new content on offer in this year’s program, especially with the inclusion of the light commercial vessels stream, which will discuss boat hire and tourism and strategies to get more Australians on the water, like never before.”
Marine17 will be held at the new ICC Sydney Convention Centre in conjunction with the 50th anniversary Sydney International Boat Show, creating a nine-day celebration of all things boating.
The conference aims to attract more than 500 attendees from across the Asia Pacific region to discuss industry topics across four main streams: Boating Business, Marinas, Boating Safety and Light Commercial Marine.
