ICOMIA World Marinas Conference
The ICOMIA World Marinas Conference, to be held in Athens from October 25 to 27 this year aims to deliver an impressive programme with prominent speakers from around the globe.
The International Council of Marine Industry Associations and the Greek Marinas Association are pleased to announce that registration is now open and early-bird discounts are available from now until June 30 2018.
More than 400 delegates are expected to take part in this three-day event to interact and openly debate with leading representatives from business, academia and politics, from Greece and abroad on “Cross sea challenges for marinas-Setting the scene for collective development and growth”. The three-day event will consist of two conference days and a day touring some of the best marinas that Athens has to offer. The event is specially designed for marina owners, operators, developers, consultants, equipment manufacturers and service providers who like to stay on top of the developments on the industry and become part of the evolution.
Experts from the country’s marina sector will showcase current major waterfront and marina projects and discuss the Greek concession model in marinas. There will also be speakers presenting their expertise on electric boat propulsion, solar piers, floating houses and floating infrastructures. Plus, delegates will learn about security issues at ports and marinas, oil pollution crisis management and marina marketing best practices. Other compelling topics in the programme include the international growth of superyacht charter as well as managing change in boating and ownership. In addition, ICOMIA will present its latest policy papers, introduce its Environment Guide and explore global issues affecting marinas – such as new international guidelines for marina design and ISO regulations for ports.
