This was certainly evident with the level of productivity for the members of the Australian International Marine Export Group (AIMEX) and the Australian Commercial Marine Industry (ACMG) who were exhibiting over the course of the three days, providing exceptional opportunities to connect with many existing and potential business partners. AIMEX and ACMG also hosted a stand, providing their members additional connections with broader industry networking.

Throughout the Expo, ACMG promoted their Australian Major Haul Out, Refit and Maintenance Directory, with David Good, CEO, ACMG stating “Indo Pacific was an excellent platform to distribute this publication as it details important information for any large vessels operating in Australian waters that could need emergency or planned maintenance. Our 2024 Australian Marine Directory is also delivering essential information for prime contractors wanting to increase the Australian content when bidding for Australian government tenders. Both documents were well received by attendees seeking information on Australian marine companies and capabilities.”
