Dates confirmed for Queensland’s annual ASMEX 2022 conference

The Australian International Marine Export Group (AIMEX) has confirmed its annual conference ASMEX 2022 will be held from 16th to 18th May at the InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort on the Gold Coast, Queensland.

For the 11th edition, the flagship Australian marine industry conference will continue to build on its robust reputation for delivering quality and current industry commentary plus offer invaluable networking opportunities among all attendees. The City of Gold Coast and the Queensland Government have both reaffirmed their support as partners for this annual event. 

Under the banner of ‘reconnecting with the world’, the conference will focus on the direction of the export, superyacht and commercial sectors of Australia’s marine industry as they adapt to ‘living with Covid’, while continuing to face the challenges of ongoing growth.

ASMEX 2022 will include meetings on the predictions and possible outcomes for Australia’s economy, the expansion of service proposition for commercial vessels, superyacht destination marketing strategies, the Brisbane 2032 Olympics and superyacht visitation expectations, and more.

Tom Tate, mayor of the Gold Coast, commented, “Our marine industry is a shining beacon within our local economy. The industry is enjoying some stellar times thanks to the incredible enthusiasm of private investment in new products, facilities, logistics and support services. Governments at any level can only do so much so to see the level of investment underway right now shows the confidence that exists in the marketplace. The city is delighted to continue support for ASMEX and I wish conference organisers success.’’

AIMEX will also be hosting the annual Australian Marine Industry Awards as part of the ASMEX 2022 program. The awards gala dinner event acknowledges the outstanding achievers in the Australian superyacht, marine export and commercial industries. It will be held on Wednesday 18th May at the Southport Yacht Club on the Gold Coast, honouring the winners across the eight competitive award categories.

David Good, CEO at AIMEX, added, “With borders open to all international arrivals, it’s important for marine businesses to reconnect with their clients and to re-establish their relationships. ASMEX 2022 will also provide that much needed direct contact and networking with industry members.”
