Our Philosophy

The Gold Coast International Boat Show & Marine Expo is a not-for-profit association staged by the marine industry leaders, for the marine industry, founded in 2011.

The Gold Coast International Boat Show & Marine Expo sees the dates of the award-winning Gold Coast International Marine Expo move forward to 17-19 March 2017.

In 2017 the boat show will also be operated and managed with the support of the Boating Industry Association – Australia’s peak industry representative body.

The boat show’s key driver is to entice and educate the public to explore and learn all the exciting possibilities that “boating” and getting out on the water has to offer while showcasing our diverse marine industry in a highly memorable and interactive way.

The boat show’s primary charter is to stage a truly unique and effective boat show.

There is no requirement to make a profit from the running of this event.
