Interest in Australian products drives strong presence in Dubai

by AIMEX on 5 Mar 2014
Dubai International Boat Show Dubai International Boat Show
Victorian marine manufacturers will again have strong representation at the Dubai International Boat Show through their presence in the Australian Pavilion, organised by the Australian International Marine Export Group (AIMEX).

Prior to the show, AIMEX with the support of the State Government of Victoria have organized a trade mission to Turkey to look at superyacht builders and opportunities for Australian companies in this market. Post this mission, the companies will travel to the Dubai International Boat Show to reinforce their presence in this market where they have exhibited for the past 9 years.

AIMEX CEO MaryAnne Edwards commented 'There will be an excellent representation from Victoria confirming the significance of the marine sector within Victoria. The support provided by the Victorian Government has been a key factor in enabling such a strong contingent and will certainly drive positive results for Victorian exporters.'

The show to be held 4 - 8 March will be a premier platform for Victorian companies and AIMEX members to take advantage of opportunities in the emerging Gulf marine market. Despite the current economic climate, the marine export market in the UAE region is still seen as having considerable potential.

Ms. Edwards said there was no question that the Middle East was an emerging maritime market offering opportunities across the UAE, Qatar, Bahrain and Kuwait to name a few. 'These areas in the Middle East have highly active tourism and trade hubs that can support long term maritime ventures.'


The Middle East is the only region in the world that can boast such a huge level of investment in waterfront developments. These massive waterside developments in both Dubai and the surrounding region are generating increased demand for leisure boats, equipment and associated services.

Dubai International Boat Show is the largest leisure marine exhibition in the Middle East and continues to be a great opportunity for AIMEX members.

AIMEX, the coordinator of the Australian pavilion is the peak body for the Australian marine export industry, having more than 100 of Australia’s most successful marine companies as members. The members encompass a huge range of marine products and services with manufacturers, designers, consultants, service providers and boat show organizers.

The Victorian members exhibiting in Dubai include Activ Concepts, Barnaclerid, Bellingham Marine, Marine Tech Industries, MultiPanel, Palm Products, Pyrotek Noise Control, Riviera Marine and Ronstan International. Also exhibiting will be other key AIMEX members; Coursemaster Autopilots, HyDrive Engineering, Muir Winches, Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, Stebercraft and VEEM Propellers.
