Sail-World.com : Korea Show Success

Korea Show Success

'Governor Kim Moon-Soo, promoting Korea Boat Show, and Barry Jenkins of Marine Qld.'    Jeni Bone

In his capacity as President of AMIF, Barry Jenkins assesses the inaugural Korea Boat Show as a great result for the hosts and for Australian businesses.

'They got it together,' says Jenkins. 'Considering they put it together in six months, it was excellent. The Koreans relied on people power, plus they had an immense commitment from the government and financial investment in marking it work. I think I could speak for most of the Australians who were there and say it was a success.'

As Jenkins reports, Governor Kim Moon-Soo looked after all his international guests and ensured they were well versed on local culture, customs and the growth of the marine industry.

'There were hordes of people at the show and there were lots of cultural activities during the day and evenings,' says Jenkins, adding that it was all free.

'It was free entry as well. There were free buses from a lot of areas so people could get to the show. They have to create the interest in recreational boating and one way is to put volumes of people through the show.'

From Trade Queensland’s point of view and Marine Queensland’s perspective, Jenkins says the Australian message was very well received.

'We had some good follow up and enquiries from our presentations. Next year will depend on the genuineness of leads and quality of enquiries that come out of this year’s show.'

This was Jenkins' second time in Korea, attending Yacht Korea, the first boat show held in Korea, in a southern province of South Korea last year at the invitation of Governor Tae-Ho Kim.

'Between the two of them (provinces), they are keen to get things moving as far as recreational boating and superyachts are concerned. But it will take some time.'
