WORLD NEWS RPM announces five-year plan THAILAND: A five-year 5 billion Baht (US0 million) investment plan has been announced by Royal Phuket Marina. Called DestinationRPM, it includes two hotels, a low-rise condominium development, a first-of-kind water facility, marina expansion and a children’s zone. The marina will be expanded with a 250-boat drystack system with concierge service. Livart opens Sydney office AUSTRALIA: Livart Marine of China has shipped up to 35 containers of materials to Sydney for the construction of Tom Ugly’s Bridge Marina. Discussions for other new public marinas and jetties in Australia is under way. The order coincides with Livart’s decision to open up Livart Marine (Australia) in Sydney and prompted its decision to exhibit at marine15 on the Gold Coast in May. All Livart marinas are designed to Australian Standard AS 3962-2001 and materials are highly UV-ray and salt water resistant, and fire-proof. “With a new firm in Australia we can offer better service and provide quick and effective response,” said Livart business director, Leo Woo. Highest praise for marine15 AUSTRALIA: The marine15 conference and trade exhibition, held on the Gold Coast 3rd-5th May, was highly praised by delegates and exhibitors. Around 450 people attended. Organising Committee chairman Jeff d’Albora summed up the event, saying “the speakers’ content, trade exhibition and event location have all exceeded expectations.” US speaker Steve Ryder, manager of project development with Bellingham Marine, described marine15 as one of the best marine industry events in the world. Leigh Francis from All Marine Spares commented on the quality of the delegates and the excellence of the venue for networking and building business relationships. Shelly Grice from the Department of Transport WA said the event, with its three streams of boating safety, boating business and marinas, provided delegates with a rich array of topics providing excellent networking and learning outcomes. A wide variety of products was displayed by 50 exhibitors including several first-timers. Craig Bone of Petrolink spoke positively about the investment: “This is clearly an event about quality not quantity with most enquiries being very good leads.” Regular exhibitor, M-Tech, was also delighted with the flow of quality attendees. “It’s always a good event and this year has been busy and definitely a good place for us to exhibit,” general manager Darren Wilkinson told Marina World. There were 50 plenary and break-out sessions and ten pre- and post-events. Highlights included the gala dinner and announcement of The Club Marine MIA Marina of the Year Awards for 2015/16. Commercial Marina awards went to Rivergate Marina and Soldiers Point Marina, Royal Perth Yacht Club received the Club Marine award and Port Denarau Fiji won Best International Marina.
