WORLD NEWS Developers invited for Rottnest marina AUSTRALIA: Tourism Minister Kim Hames believes a new resort and marina complex at Rottnest Island off the coast of Perth, WA, will provide much safer mooring compared with existing facilities or individual anchorage and help boost the island as a visitor attraction. Announcing the release of the resort and marina development request for Expressions of Interest on 10th August, Dr Hames invited the private sector to take an active role in a quality, sustainable development that would contribute to the island’s appeal as a destination of choice. “West Australians will benefit from extra accommodation options on the island, especially in peak times, and boat users have expressed strong interest in additional facilities to supplement the limited number of swing moorings in selected bays on the island,” he said. The Minister said the project is the result of extensive work completed for the Rottnest Island Authority’s management plan to guide tourism infrastructure development for the island over the next five years. Its scale and diversity is expected to attract strong interest from resort hotel groups as well as marina developers and operators. The resort and marina are expected to provide between 100 and 150 accommodation units and around 250 berths in the Thomson Bay South precinct, which offers the marina maximum protection. Large barge loading facilities will also be included to support the delivery of supplies to the island. The selected private sector party or consortium will be determined by the end of 2015, with construction starting as soon as environmental approvals are in place. CBRE has been appointed as the management company for the marina project. IMBC reports strong booth sales EXPERIENCE INTEGRITY PASSION VISION LEADERSHIP USA: As Marina World went to press, International Marina & Boatyard Conference (IMBC) organisers reported the 2016 exhibit hall to be 70% sold. Over 80 industry suppliers have so far signed on to participate in the show. The 2016 event (27th-29th January) will be held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Last year’s event was a record breaker in terms of attendance and more of the same is expected for 2016. The Association of Marina Industries (AMI) is organising the exhibition, receptions for both exhibitors and attendees, seminars, workshops, keynote speakers, Best Profit Idea Awards and more. “The 2015 IMBC content was superb, very informative and with spot on topics everyone was interested in. As the AMI’s CMM programme continues to grow we announced the designation of eight new CMMs and one new CMO,” comments AMI chairman Jeff Rose CMM. This year’s event is co-locating with the Refit International Exhibition and Conference, Professional BoatBuilder magazine’s new annual trade event created exclusively for professionals working in the large yacht refit sector. Refit International will feature a series of 24 technical seminars and an exhibition hall dedicated to the most appropriate products and technologies available to this unique industry. “We are delighted to have the opportunity to share space with the Refit Show and create an opportunity to connect each of our audiences and provide them with access to the broadest array of vendors and content,” says IMBC event coordinator, Kate Stanley. Although the Refit Show and IMBC are different shows, aiming to attract different audiences, there will be opportunity for cross-show networking that leverages the similarities between the marina and refit industries.
