ASMEX Conference 2020

The 10th annual Australian Superyacht, Marine Export & Commercial Marine Industry (ASMEX) conference will take place from Monday 18 May to Tuesday 19 May, 2020 at the InterContinental Resort, Sanctuary Cove. The popular South East Queensland Yard Tours will be offered again on Wednesday May 20. 

As the flagship conference in Australia for the marine export industry, ASMEX 2020 will continue to build on its solid reputation for delivering quality and current industry information and invaluable networking opportunities.  The conference has gained significant momentum over the last nine years and continues to attract a significant presence of both Australian and international delegates and speakers.

We are very excited about the recent passing by the Senate of the Special Recreational Vessel legislation that will enable foreign superyachts to charter in Australia through a coastal trading temporary licence. This change will of course have a positive effect to the marine industry in terms of job creation and in economic spend through the increased provision of marine services, in particular due to the increase in superyacht visitation activity in the Pacific region spurred on by the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics and the America’s Cup in Auckland New Zealand in March 2021. 

Come and join us at ASMEX 2020 and be part of the lively discussions and debates that lead this industry.
