This morning, an Extraordinary AIMEX Board Meeting took place to discuss the developing situation of COVID-19 with the resulting decision that the Australian Superyacht, Marine Export & Commercial Marine Industry Conference (ASMEX) has been cancelled for 2020.

ASMEX organisers, the Australian International Marine Export Group (AIMEX), the Australian Commercial Marine Group (ACMG) and Superyacht Australia stated that the health and well-being of their members, sponsors, speakers, staff and other stakeholders is their top priority.

With the Australian Prime Minister's announcement this morning, Wednesday 18 March, declaring an indefinite ban on indoor gatherings of 100 people or more, has prevented ASMEX 2020, scheduled to take place at Sanctuary Cove on 18 - 19 May 2020 from proceeding. Ticketholders will be contacted shortly regarding a refund.

The Australian Marine Industry Awards will still be awarded this year. The application period has now been extended with a closing date of 30 June 2020 and the format for their announcement currently being revised and rescheduled for later in the calendar year.
