The Sydney International Boat Show is many things to many people. The industry has an opportunity to show its wares, visitors come in search of that special product or simply to follow a dream. But whilst this is happening amongst the hustle and bustle of the show, what is not obvious are BIA’s efforts to help students of all ages during the event.

On the surface visitors will see the newly created Marine Education Centre situated within the Marine Precinct. This is a first for Marine Education with three key bodies coming together with the common objective of trying to help guests understand the multitude of learning options available.

The Centre will be staffed by representatives of the Marine Studies Teachers Association for High Schools, TAFE and the BIA’s own education team. Here, visitors will be able to gather information about study options from years 9 to 12 in Marine Aquaculture & Technology, and Marine Studies.

TAFE will have an array of study options from Marine Mechanics and Shipwright as well as an assortment of another 10 study options related to the recreational marine industry. The BIA will have on offer a variety of professional development programs for those already in the industry.

The show also provides an opportunity for the industry to showcase careers options with the BIA hosting a Careers Workshop for high school students.

With over 250 students registered for the workshop, they will hear industry experts talk about various topics that will highlight the exciting career choices with recreational boating industry.

Behind the scenes colleges throughout Sydney will have a contributing role at the show. Students studying Events Management, Tourism and Journalism from Macleay College will be filling active roles throughout the show. This will be the

13th year students from Macleay College will play a vital role in keeping the show buoyant and operating.

Students from the International College of Management Sydney based in Manly have for months been preparing stage activity to showcase the shows clothing partner Musto’s wares for the upcoming season. The daily fashion extravaganza will play out three times a day from the Better Boating Lounge and Nautilus Fishing Clinic with performers from the Sydney Dance Company.


Numerous other colleges and educational institutions have already made arrangements to visit the show during its 5 days of operations. Many of the visits are complimented with a short presentation by a BIA team member customised to suit the nature of the study group. Follow up guest lectures at the college or school by BIA team members are not uncommon.
Whilst the show continues to fulfil many of the industries business objectives and visitors needs, the BIA are pleased to support students across so many study fields.

The show is proudly supported by NSW Maritime.
