The Gold Coast International Marine Expo is not-for-profit, four-day, family-friendly event attracting exhibitors and visitors from across Australia and around the world.
In 2017, the Expo will again be held on the same dates as some of Queensland’s other boating events helping to facilitate four fantastic days on the Gold Coast for boat lovers and enthusiasts.
The Expo is staged within the facilities of Australia’s largest boat manufacturing plants and working shipyards. This ready-made venue provides the perfect location for the public to experience a behind-the-scenes view of the marine industry, bringing them even closer to our industry, in a highly memorable and interactive manner.
There is no other boat show in Australia like Expo.
The Expo not only offers a wide range of exhibits from kayaks to superyachts, it also offers a comprehensive program of events including a variety of live technical demonstrations and attractions with something happening every 15 minutes over the four big days.
Expo is ‘the boat show with so much more’ and has provided a proven opportunity over the past six years for a wide range of marine businesses.
In total Expo has welcomed over 110,000 visitors over the last six years with 2017 marking the seventh annual event.
In this time Expo has also raised over $79,000 for our four local charities, which are the Rotary Club of Coomera River, Sailability Gold Coast, Westpac Surf Life Saving Helicopter Rescue Service, and the Ronald McDonald House Charity. All of these organisations assist with the logistics of staging such a massive event. Some 100 volunteers are involved in Expo each year.
