The Greek Marinas Association (GMA) has been announced as host of the 2018 ICOMIA World Marinas Conference (IWMC).
The leading light in ensuring successful future developments of marina facilities around the globe, the International Council of Marine Industry Associations’ (ICOMIA) World Marinas Conference is the key initiative of the ICOMIA Marina Group’s Outreach and Support Programme. IWMC is aimed at marina owners, operators, developers, consultants, service providers, Government officials, equipment manufacturers, nautical tourism promoters, and port and harbour operators and draws hundreds of delegates and speakers from around the globe.
IWMC is presented by the ICOMIA Marinas Group (IMG), the committee born out of ICOMIA`s recognition that ensuring boat owners a safe and convenient place to berth, moor or launch their boat is vital to the future of the industry.
An active and prominent member of IMG since 2011, GMA was established in 2010 in order to represent, upgrade and promote the tourist ports and marina facilities throughout Greece. Its membership includes 77% of the total regional berthing capacity, and includes both public and private members all of which are well organised marinas focusing on quality, safety and customer satisfaction. Stavros Katsikadis, president of the GMA highlighted the importance of this win for Greek marinas and the city of Athens: “I’m confident IWMC 2018 will be a high-performing, world class event. Delegates will benefit from quality content and the expertise of the exceptional international speakers IWMC attracts. Athens promises to them an unforgettable experience”.
The world-renowned travelling Conference will be held 25 – 27 October 2018 in Athens, Greece
The decision to award GMA the bid was made during IMG’s autumn meeting, held 12-14 October 2017 in Vancouver, Canada, which 13 IMG members attended and included a tour of 10 marinas on the west coast of Canada.
The IWMC series is highly informative and relevant to global market trends, whilst the extensive networking opportunities are invaluable for on-going business success and the vast array of exhibits offer insight into the very latest in marina product development and technology.
The IWMC website
We created a responsive, mobile-friendly design, that can be viewed on any device, and used navy blue colours with modern typography and bold accents. We developed the site to be an easy-to-navigate platform, so the viewer can quickly scan through all the information on the programme, the speakers, the sponsorship opportunities and delegate registration.
