Australian show invites exhibitors to participate in 30th annual event

The Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show has officially launched its milestone 30th anniversary showcase, which will be held from May 24-27.

Starting today, marine brands are invited to join the 2018 show.

SCIBS general manager Johan Hasser said the team was thrilled to be planning a massive show for 2018, buoyed by the spirit of exhibitors already working toward their displays for it.

“Thirty years is a milestone we are proud and excited to share with our exhibitors, sponsors and supporters across the industry,” Hasser said in a statement. “From 100-plus exhibitors in 1989 to the world-class showcase it is today, with more than 300 quality exhibitors from Australia, New Zealand and Asia, plus visitors from around the world, it’s fair to say we’ve come a long way.”

As well as attracting upwards of 40,000 visitors, SCIBS has grown to become an important B2B event on the Australian boating calendar, hosting international delegations from every continent in the wake of the Australian Superyacht, Marine Export and Commercial Marine Industry Conference and thanks to the support of the Gold Coast City Council and the Queensland government.

“Many people tell us they plan to travel down under to experience SCIBS and see for themselves the ingenuity and innovation the Australian marine industry is renowned for,” he said.
