The Organising Committee today announced Royal Pines Resort Gold Coast as the location for Marine15 to be held 3-5 May 2015.
Organising Committee Chair Jeff d’Albora said Royal Pines Resort will be an excellent venue for event participants. 'The venue exceeds our brief for a minimum 500 delegate conference with multiple breakout rooms and an associated 65 plus trade exhibition in modern surroundings.
What really has the Committee excited is the on-site accommodation capacity of 592 rooms that will ensure there is maximum interaction and business networking between attendees over the three day event.'
Building on the success of Marine13 the conference program will again be structured with the three streams of boating business, boating safety and marinas. As befitting the Queensland location, boating related tourism will also be a theme across the streams. There will be more than 45 topic sessions to choose from with a mix of local and international presenters.
The Marine15 trade exhibition is expected to sell out quickly. Exhibitors from Marine13 commented on the well qualified audience and that the event was an excellent environment in which to conduct business.
Ken Chernabaeff from Advanced Plastics Recycling (APR) said exhibiting at Marine13 has given the company’s marine sales a boost and he is currently interviewing for additional sales staff. 'APR will have a strong presence at Marine15,' he said.
The Marine15 Organising Committee comprises members of Boating Industries Alliance Australia, Marina Industries Association and the Australia New Zealand Safe Boating Education Group.
