The Marine 13 International Conference and Trade Exhibition, which will be held April 28-30 in Sydney, Australia, will feature 96 speakers from nine countries and 47 sessions.

Darren Vaux, chairman of the Boating Industries Alliance Australia, said in a statement that the number and quality of speakers reflected the scale and importance of Marine 13 as a landmark forum for the recreational marine sector in Australia and the wider region.

“The planning and investment in ensuring session topics and speakers are targeted to the issues and needs of the boating sector has been an extensive, 15-month process,” Vaux said. “I am now extremely pleased to say that what we have in place is a compelling offer for businesses and government agencies wanting to discuss, plan and develop effective boating strategies for the future.”

The range of speakers includes Jean Murray, Canadian Safe Boating Council; John Leman, International Marina Consultants; Darren Finkelstein, St. Kilda Boat Sales; John Fladun, Australian Maritime Safety Authority; Zhenan Zhang, Quindao City Construction Investment Group; and Graham Raspass, Sailtime Australia and New Zealand.

Plenary session speakers at Marine 13 will address such big-picture challenges as changing demographics, the move to online business and engaging future boaters. The three streams of boating businesses, marinas and boating safety will drill down on specific topics across 37 sessions.

Investment in boat shows, fast tracking marina redevelopment and life jackets — a global challenge to prevent loss of life — are just a sample of the topics to be discussed by the extensive list of speakers from across the globe. Marine 13 also has attracted associated events that include an International Lifejacket Forum, Fast Craft workshop and Pacific Nations workshops.
