ASMEX Cancelled for 2020!
At an Extraordinary AIMEX Board Meeting it was decided that the Australian Superyacht, Marine Export & Commercial Marine Industry Conference (ASMEX) needed to be cancelled for 2020, as a result of the Australian Prime Minister’s announcement on Wednesday 18 March, declaring an indefinite ban on indoor gatherings of 100 people or more. ASMEX organisers, the Australian International Marine Export Group (AIMEX), the Australian Commercial Marine Group (ACMG) and Superyacht Australia stated that the health and well-being of their members, sponsors, speakers, staff and other stakeholders is their top priority and ticketholders would be contacted regarding a refund.
The Australian Marine Industry Awards will still be awarded this year. The application period has now been extended with a closing date of 30 June 2020 and the format for their announcement currently being revised and rescheduled for later in the calendar year.
