The Marina Industries Association (MIA) is pleased to announce details of Marinas21, the International Conference and Trade Exhibition that is conducted every two years in Australia.

Marinas21 will again be held on the Gold Coast. The venue is the Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort. The dates are Sunday 23 May to Tuesday 25 May 2021 to be followed by the Marina and Boatyard Technical Tour on Wednesday 26 May. The Club Marine Marina of the Year Awards Dinner will be held at the conclusion of the conference on Tuesday 25 May.

The dates for Marinas21 overlap with the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show 2021 (SCIBS) that concludes on 23 May. Many delegates to Marinas19 appreciated the opportunity to visit SCIBS before attending Marinas19 and the MIA Board believe this is an important 'value add' particularly for interstate and international delegates.

Chairman of the MIA Marinas21 Committee Mike Harvey said the comparative ease of access to the Gold Coast for delegates plus the added attraction of visiting SCIBS were prime reasons for the decision. "We have changed venues for 2021 in part to meet the growing demand for trade show exhibition space. The Marriott is also very central to a range of accommodation options."

The Professional Conference Organiser for Marinas21 will again be Gold Coast based AST Management that impressed delegates and exhibitors with their efficiency and good service.

MIA CEO Colin Bransgrove said further details of Marinas21 will be progressively released over the coming months. "MIA also welcomes enquiries from companies and organisations interested in sponsoring or exhibiting at Marinas21. Given the success of Marinas21 we anticipate very strong demand for exhibition space by marina suppliers."
