Marinas24 finalises programme

AUSTRALIA: The programme for the Marinas24 International Conference and Trade Exhibition, to be held 27th-28th May at the Royal International Convention Centre, Brisbane has been finalised.

The event kicks off with an economic overview and forecast from National Australia Bank’s Tapas Strickland, and quickly moves to focus on the opportunities for the marine industry in Australia and the broader Asia Pacific region as we head towards 2032.
Delegates will receive the findings of the 2023 Health of the Australasian Marina Industry Survey (HAMIS), which for the first time included New Zealand. This data provides an overview of historic trends and key industry benchmarks. The Marina Industries Association (MIA) will share how it is supporting industry and its long-term strategy.
Special focus will be given to: designing marina precincts; being climate-ready; alternative power systems; energy and compliance obligations; maximising yield; increasing projects through shared boating clubs; and topical operations matters, such as recruitment and retention, marketing and the ever-popular innovation showcase.
Rodney Longhurst, owner of Riviera Australia, will deliver the closing keynote, sharing the inspiring story of ‘The rebirth of the Riviera’.
Social and networking events include the North Harbour Happy Hour; Breakfast with the Exhibitors; and the Superior Jetties Gala Dinner.
