MYP becomes M&YTR at IBEX USA: The 2022 International Boatbuilders’ Exhibition and Conference (IBEX), set to take place in Tampa, Florida 27 th -29 th September, is transitioning its Marina & Yard Pavilion (MYP) to become an expanded Marina & Yard Trade Route (M&YTR). Many exhibitors have an interest in being part of the MYP but are unable to change their show location. The trade route allows IBEX to give all marina and yard sector companies the same level of exposure, and gives IBEX visitors many more relevant companies to visit on all three levels of the convention centre. Show organisers are optimistic that IBEX 2022 will prove a big success. “All early metrics indicate that IBEX will return to pre-pandemic numbers with exhibit space sold out. Our current hotel bookings have already surpassed 2019 and web views have increased significantly so we know visitor interest is very high,” said show director Anne Dunbar. “We have a terrific schedule of events to entertain and educate everyone who attends IBEX 2022.” Details of the M&YTR will soon be available at Health of Industry report AUSTRALIA: The Marina Industry Association (MIA) has released its latest Health of the Australian Industry Survey Report (HAMIS). Conducted every two years since 2011, the survey continues to provide a comprehensive, comparable and evolving perspective on the economic, social and environmental performance and contributions of Australian marinas. Conducted in late 2021, the findings are based on a sample of over 46% of the country’s 290 club and commercial marinas. Performance highlights indicate industry turnover exceeding 0 million, direct employment of over 3,300 people, government tax and lease payments of million, along with capital investments of over 3 million. The industry engaged nearly 8,700 independent contractors and provided tenancy to over 1,900 businesses. WORLD NEWS MIA president, Andrew Chapman, said: “The findings indicate inadequacy of supply in many locations around the country. It shows that strong occupancy rates and waitlists have continued to grow over the last decade despite an increase in storage spaces. This bodes well for the future of our industry as it indicates further opportunity, particularly given the increasing pipeline of new vessels on order from manufacturers – they are all going to need somewhere to store their boats.” INNOVATIVE.
