WHO SHOULD EXHIBIT
The Gold Coast International Marine Expo is open to all businesses in the marine industry; there is no discrimination of power or sail, new or used boats, size of craft or marine equipment and services provided.
The Expo welcomes all marine related products, companies and services and provides an ideal opportunity for dealers to showcase new, trade-in stock or brokerage listings. Equipment suppliers are able to cater for the pre-season fit out requirements whilst service providers are able to take advantage of the coming seasons and repair opportunities.

The Expo offers a unique and cost effective boat show platform that allows exhibitors to:
– Meet consumers within a friendly marine environment
– Sell your products and services
– Boost your brand awareness and gain valuable recognition
– Launch a new product line – or a “new and improved” product
– Increase your database and gain life-long customers
– Enjoy the personal interaction and get to know your customers
While exhibiting at Expo the consumer is able to better understand what your product or service has to offer and create and form that ever important business relationship.
Exhibitions and events are valuable because they allow face-to-face communication and offer opportunities for networking. They enable you to meet the people that matter to your business in one place, including existing customers, new prospects, suppliers, advisers, investors and key figures in the marine industry.
Set at the Gold Coast Marine Precinct the Expo has a ready-made venue providing the perfect location for the public to witness boat building, refitting and repairing first-hand, bringing enthusiasts even closer to the industry, in a memorable and interactive manner.
Offering a rare behind the scenes view of the marine industry allows the Expo to entice and educate the general public on what “boating” and getting out on the water has to offer. Expo also offers visitors a wide range of exhibitors from kayaks to super yachts, as well as a comprehensive program of events including a variety of live technical demonstrations and attractions with something taking place every 15 minutes over four big days.
The Gold Coast International Marine Expo offers you the boat show with so much more.
