THE BOAT SHOW WITH SO MUCH MORE

The Expo is an annual four-day, family-friendly event attracting exhibitors and visitors from across Australia and around the world.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

The Expo is a not-for-profit association staged by the marine industry leaders, for the marine industry, founded in 2011.

The Expo’s key driver is to entice and educate the public to explore and learn all the exciting possibilities that “boating” and getting out on the water has to offer.

The Expo’s primary charter is to stage the event at minimal cost outlay to exhibitors and only seek to recover direct costs. There is no requirement to make a profit from the running of this event.
