With the closing date for the 2013 Club Marine Australian Marine Industry Export and Superyacht Awards applications a mere month away, the Australian International Marine Export Group (AIMEX) is beginning to receive applications and based on the level of interest received AIMEX anticipates a strong calibre of applications for 2013.

It is anticipated that this year’s announcement at the Gala Dinner on Tuesday 21 May, during the ASMEX conference, immediately prior to the 25th Anniversary of the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show will provide an even greater level of global exposure to winners and applicants.
