ASMEX Conference 2020


Wednesday 18 March 2020

ASMEX 2020 organisers regret to advise that a decision was taken this morning at an Extraordinary AIMEX Board Meeting this morning held to discuss the developing situation of COVID-19 and as such the ASMEX Conference has been cancelled for 2020.

As the organisers of ASMEX, the Australian International Marine Export Group (AIMEX), the Australian Commercial Marine Group (ACMG) and Superyacht Australia, we emphasise the health and well-being of our members, sponsors, speakers, staff and other stakeholders as a 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, this has prevented ASMEX 2020 from proceeding. ASMEX 2020 was scheduled to take place at Sanctuary Cove, in Queensland from 18–19 May 2020.  Ticket holders 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.



The 2019 conference was heralded a success with over 170 delegates attending to discuss and debate key opportunities and to set the agenda for the future promotion of the Australian marine industry.  Officially opened by Michael Healy, MP for Cairns and Queensland Government & Superyacht Strategy Champion, the conference brought together not only topical speakers and challenging debate from key industry players, it also contributed to setting the agenda for the future promotion of the marine export industry tackling crucial challenges and sparking new initiatives.
