The International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA) together with event organiser, Amsterdam RAI and ICOMIA member, the Turkish Marine Industry Association, DENTUR, will be presenting the much-anticipated World Marinas Conference 2014, hosted by Istanbul, Turkey between 2 and 4 June 2014.

The globally prominent Conference is presented by the ICOMIA Marinas Group and, for the first time, in partnership with METS organiser Amsterdam RAI. Hosted by DENTUR, which serves over 300 Turkish companies and experts in the industry, the event is set to attract over 350 attendees and will include an exciting line-up of industry speakers as well as social and networking events.

Marina Industries Association (MIA) directors and members will be presenting several papers at the conference, with topics as varied as Making Profits Through Marina Events, Marina Education, both presented by Andrew Chapman, and How Marinas Can Promote Boating, presented by Colin Bransgrove, Executive Officer of MIA.

'This conference will be the ideal forum for bringing together marina owners and operators from all over the world to discuss issues and opportunities for the industry. There are a number of other meetings, including the Global marina Institute, which will discuss marine education. There will also be a networking event for Certified Marina Managers (CMMs) from around the globe. This will ensure sharing ideas and for their own professional development.'

According to Bransgrove, the issues facing the marina industry globally include regulations and sustainability. 'Regulation and taxes are a real barrier to growth, certainly in Australia and Europe. There is also the pressing matter of environmental standards, and positioning marinas as community hubs. Not just an enclave for yacht owners, but a vibrant, lively community meeting place where people want to go and meet friends, dine, socialise, and enjoy their cities.'


A number of Australian marina suppliers will be exhibiting, including Superior and Bellingham.

'The conference is open to industry and suppliers. MIA will have a stand at the conference. People who are interested in becoming involved should contact the MIA on (02) 9439 5806,' said Bransgrove.
