The Boating Industry Association is proud to announce that they are hosting the International Congress of Marine Industry Associations and the International Federation of Boat Show Organisers next week on the Gold Coast.

The ICOMIA / IFBSO Congress is a major date on the international calendar, attracting people from across the industry and from all parts of the globe. The Congress takes place from 24 to 27 May, overlapping with the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, and following the ASMEX conference.

The ICOMIA / IFBSO Congress is where the world boating industry comes together, and was last held in Italy. The BIA last hosted this congress in Sydney in 2002.

“We are excited about the opportunity to showcase Australian industry, and in particular on the Gold Coast at the heart of Australian boat manufacturing”, said Howard Glenn, Chief Executive of the Boating Industry Association.

“There is a vast range of topics being covered, through workshops, key-note addresses and social receptions, all aimed at forming connections in the industry. It all culminates in a Gala Dinner to cap off a terrific week of boating activities.

“This week is as all about coming together as an industry to share knowledge and expertise in a world leading forum”, Mr Glenn said.
