The Marina Industries Association (MIA) has released the Exhibitor Prospectus for the Marinas21 International Conference & Trade Exhibition which will which will be held at the Marriott Resort Surfers Paradise, 24 -25 May 2021, timed to follow the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.

The Trade Exhibition is key to the event as the 300-400 industry professionals in attendance use it as an opportunity to keep up to date with the latest products and innovations and reconnect with suppliers.  Incoming MIA CEO Suzanne Davies explained, “We surveyed past attendees recently to ask what products they want to see exhibited at Marinas21.  Naturally, marina manufacturers, pedestal and dock product suppliers and boatyard lifting and equipment suppliers are the perennial favourites.  It is expected they will again all be there.  Interestingly, there was very strong interest from delegates in meeting exhibitors who supply safety and environmental equipment and consultant services; security and access control; marina management software solutions; and fuel maintenance supplies and services.  Dry stack and other berthing solutions were also high on the list.  Our aim is to showcase all the products and services that the industry has told us they want to see.” 

MIA Vice President and General Manager of Bellingham Marine, John Spragg is always a keen exhibitor at the conference. He commented, “The Exhibition is an important part of the event and continues to grow every year.  It is without doubt, the most time efficient and cost-effective way for any business wishing to engage in this market as it gives you access to the key decision makers in the industry, because they are all there!”

Ample time is given for delegates to meet with exhibitors before and after the days’ conferencing along with dedicated exhibition breaks throughout the day. 

It is a great time to exhibit as the boating industry benefits from a surge in interest as the community looks at ways to holiday closer to home.  Earlier this month the Federal Government announced it will cover up to half of the costs for Australian businesses exhibiting at conferences to help restart the exhibition sector.  Further details on how exhibitors can access this funding will be provided once the government releases the detail.
