ICOMIA World Marinas Conference in Singapore Exceeds Expectations

12th May 2011
ICOMIA World Marinas Conference in Singapore Exceeds Expectations
An exceptional, global audience gathered together over the last two days in Singapore's Swissotel The Stamford for the 2011 ICOMIA World Marinas Conference. Held in Asia for the first time ever, 270 delegates attended from far and wide with representatives from Korea, China, Thailand, India, US, Hong Kong, Australia, Europe, Middle East, South America and of course, Singapore. The Irish Marine Federation is a member of ICOMIA, the world boating industry body.

"The impressive turnout at the conference this year has shown that Asia is the new frontier," commented YP Loke, Chairman of Singapore Boating Industry Association. "SBIA are really delighted to have hosted such a successful conference. From the content presented and discussions that took place, it was clear that there is dramatic development and huge growth happening in the region."

The conference programme covered content in marina operations and management as well as planning and development. Panel sessions and presentations saw discussions on the state of the global marina industry with a big focus on emerging markets. Discussions included topics on drystack storage, best practice operational issues, effective online marina promotion and marina industry education and training.

Networking breaks allowed for delegates to visit the sponsor booth arena, where over 25 marina suppliers showcased their products. Silver Sponsor, Camper & Nicholsons Marinas announced their newly formed partnership with BR Marinas. The partnership marks the cooperation towards the growth of luxury marinas in Brazil. The agreement reflects the growing importance of international networks in the marina business combining various experiences, knowledge and skill base.
