Marine industry professionals and related government officials from any country are encouraged to be part of the Marine15 international conference program. A call for papers is open until the end of July.
Abstracts are encouraged from all areas of the marine industry and all abstracts will be considered. Abstracts should relate to at least one of the three streams of the conference; Boating Business, Boating Safety and Marinas. A strong sub theme across Marine15 will be marine tourism.
Marine15 is being held on the Gold Coast 3to 5 May 2015. The Boating Industries Alliance Australia Chairman Darren Vaux said Marine15 is the major rallying point for the marine industries not just in Australia but across the Asia Pacific region.
'This major international event attracts the very best national and international speakers. Already we are attracting keen interest from industry and government agency leaders in the USA, Europe and Asia. Within the recreational boating safety stream for example we anticipate delegates will take away from the event the very best in world boating safety education and compliance practices.'
The three streams of Marine15 will allow for detailed analysis of trends, case studies, new developments and best practices within each stream. A small number of plenary sessions will focus on the big issues and opportunities facing the recreational marine sector. Abstracts for Marine15 should be no more than 200 words in length and a template for submission is available from the Marine15 web site www.marine15.com
