The sky’s the limit for the 2012 Gold Coast International Marine Expo which has just confirmed the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Roulettes as a daily major attraction.

The Roulettes will perform daily, demonstrating the pilot’s immense skills and co-ordination as they fly in formation only three metres apart in a spectacular aerobatics display reaching speeds of up to 600 kilometres per hour.

The second annual not-for-profit community and family focused boating spectacular is attracting strong exhibitor interest and organisers can confirm that the Expo will be bigger and even more entertaining than last year based on exhibitor commitments made to date, which brought almost 16,000 people through the gates over the three day event last year.

'Four months out from this year’s Expo, it is already well on its way to becoming a major event on the Australian Boat Show calendar, which is an enormous achievement for such a young and innovative event,' said Stephen Milne, Gold Coast International Marine Expo spokesman.

'The Expo has already exceeded it’s display area commitments compared to last year and with a 2.5 kilometre display circuit and many new attractions, the Gold Coast International Marine Expo is shaping up to be a very exciting Expo in 2012.

'We already have 80 individual exhibitors confirmed and our daily events plan is considerably greater than last year with one of our major daily attractions being the Roulettes who have confirmed they will perform an aerial show at midday on each day of the Expo.'

Other new attractions this year include the Yamaha Supertank Travelling Fishing Show. The Supertank holds 14,000 litres of fresh water and gives the audience a fish’s eye view of life underwater. The Yamaha Supertank measures 15 metres long by 3 metres wide and is a portable fishing show and education program. The sides of this tank are made from Perspex which allows people to see what the fish see and how they react to different lures and ultimately get caught. Another new attraction for 2012 is the Jetlev Jetpack Flyer Australia where a professional will fly the gravity defying jet pack along the Coomera River.

'We will also once again host the family focused Saturday night Shipyard Party, which will include an artist fundraising auction and breathtaking fireworks display,' Mr Milne said.

The Expo will continue to be free entry to the public, however organisers are asking for a gold coin donation which will go directly to the Rotary Club of Coomera River, Sailability, Wasp Creek Rural Fire Service, Paradise Kids, and the Westpac Surf Life Saver Rescue Helicopter Service.

'All of these organisations make a considerable contribution towards running the Expo and we encourage people to come along and support them,' Mr Milne said.

'Our philosophy has been to stage a free entry Marine Expo designed to excite and educate the general public to explore all the great possibilities that the boating life has to offer.'

The brainchild of Queensland’s boating industry leaders, the Gold Coast International Marine Expo is a not-for-profit-organisation.

'We believe it is the community spirit of Queensland’s boating industry leaders that has made this event so successful in year one with all profits going directly back to the community.'

The Gold Coast International Marine Expo will once again take visitors behind the scenes of the marine industry with live boat building demonstrations and factory tours, as well as other popular attractions such as the Travel Lift demonstration, Little Pirates Kids’ Club and the Marine Artists’ Quarter which will give local artists the chance to showcase their talent while raising funds for local charities at the art auction.

The second annual Gold Coast International Marine Expo will be held on November 2, 3 and 4 and will be open to the public free of charge from 9am to 5pm over the three action-packed days. To find out more visit www.gcmarineexpo.com.au

Company’s wishing to participate in this year’s Expo should contact Emma Milne at emilne(at)gcmarineexpo.com.au to secure their displays.
