Submissions open for the Marinas24 Innovation Showcase

The Marina Industries Association (MIA) has opened submissions for the Marinas24 Conference and Exhibition Innovation Showcase.

Following the success of the inaugural Innovation Showcase at last year’s Marinas22 conference, Marinas24 Conference Chair Mike Harvey CMM commented “The Showcase plays an important role in providing the industry with new solutions to existing problems. The format also allows for smaller businesses, who may not have the resources to exhibit to still have their solutions exposed to the decision makers of the marina industry”.

The Innovation Showcase will be held as the last session on Day One of the Conference (Monday 27 May). Up to seven products will be given the opportunity to participate with each business delivering a punchy seven-minute presentation where the product developer outlines the unique benefit of their creation.

A live poll of delegates will be taken to determine the Innovation Showcase winner.

At Marinas22 the winner was Paul Williams’ Man Overboard Marina Alarm System. Williams strongly encourages businesses to participate in the Innovation Showcase commenting “I was honoured to be chosen as the winner of the Innovation Showcase, to receive recognition from the industry for my invention was heartening. Presenting our safety system to marina operators and decision makers has opened many doors for us and raised much need awareness towards our cause. If you have a new and innovative product, I believe there is no better platform than participating in this showcase.”

To apply for the Innovation Showcase, contact Ed Shute Marina Industries Association Membership and Programs Manager via and submit a brief outline of the product or service, its features and benefits and how this product will change the industry. The Marinas24 Committee will consider all applicants and determine the participants selected to present at Marinas24.
