In addition, panel discussions will engage on the potential and development of Asia’s growing markets as well as industry-driven efforts to grow boating. ICOMIA will be drawing on their global network of industry experts and thought leaders to create a dynamic programme that will stimulate discussion and creative ideation.
The keynote speaker, ICOMIA President Darren Vaux, will be presenting ICOMIA’s landmark research Pathways into Propulsion Decarbonisation in the Recreational Marine Industry at the conference.
He will be joined by ICOMIA CEO Joe Lynch who is keen to support further industry engagement with the vital markets of Singapore, Southeast Asia and other regions across Asia.
Lynch said “We have renewed our focus on supporting the leisure boating industry in Asia, with the appointment of our new regional representative Su Lin Cheah who is based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It’s great to see this conference come to fruition as a result, alongside the proactive engagement of SBIA and we see this as an excellent opportunity to provide support and to engage with such a vibrant market.”
