Record participation expected at Marinas19
Marinas19 is held in the Queensland boating hub. From the air: Broadwater to Surfers Paradise.
The Marinas19 international conference and trade exhibition (27th-29th May, Gold Coast, Australia) is shaping up to be an exciting event. According to MIA chairman and president, Andrew Chapman, it could well be a record-breaker. “The conference programme of 33 sessions and the field trip address the issues and interests of today’s marina industry. The trade exhibition has booked out in record time. Participation fees are as per 2017 and delegates are booking earlier. A real bonus for interstate and international attendees is that they can also attend the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show that concludes on the day prior to the commencement of Marinas19.”
The topic of marinas and their key role in servicing and profiting from the emerging boat sharing economy will be addressed by a panel of proven boat share operators. The panel will include John Giglio, president and CEO of Freedom Boat Club (see article p. 22).

Kuestenmacher is a rising star in data animation and interpretation. He will draw out the implications for the marina industry from the latest trends.
