Australian marine conference set for April


A compelling case is being built for marine businesses to attend the Marine13 International Conference and Exhibition in Sydney, according to Darren Vaux, chairman of the Boating Industries Alliance of Australia and vice chairman of the Marina Industries Association of Australia.

“The growing list of world-class presenters who will be sharing their strategies for business success is making attendance at Marine13 a ‘must do’ for marine businesses wanting to keep ahead of their competitors,” Vaux said in a statement.

Appliances Online CEO John Winning is the latest to join the speakers list for the April 28-30 event.

“John has a vast amount of boating and business experience,” Vaux said in a statement. “He will share his intimate knowledge on how he established an online business and built it up from the ground to become arguably one of Australia’s most successful online retailers.”

The presentation will focus on the importance of leading-edge technology and customer service providing valuable insight for marine businesses weighing their commitment to online marketing and their customer service strategies.

Business investment in boat shows will be the focus of a Marine13 session for the boating business stream that will be led by UK-based speaker Andrew Williams.

Williams will share his knowledge and research across boat shows and other live events to demonstrate where even the best exhibitors can gain incremental results and to offer solutions to help exhibitors engage with visitors, sell more and increase their return on investment at shows.

Online registration is open for Marine13 , and an early bird registration incentive is in place. Exhibition and sponsorship details are at the website.
