With its members being rewarded with an exclusive 2-for-1 ticket deal to the 2015 event.

Club Marine CEO Simon McLean said the long-standing relationship with SCIBS is vital for Club Marine’s branding, enabling them to personalise their contact with members and generate interest among new members.

“SCIBS is a great opportunity to be among our members and potential members – putting life into the Club Marine brand values.

“Club Marine sponsors many boat shows, Yacht Clubs and fishing clubs right around Australia. It’s our way of supporting the industry, and of course it’s a significant branding opportunity for us. We’re pleased to be associated with SCIBS again this year.”

Club Marine is offering a discounted ticket offer to all members. The 2-for-1 ticket offer can be redeemed online at

Club Marine will also be exhibiting in its regular position above the marina.

“We are looking forward to engaging with our members at SCIBS and rewarding them with their free member gift as a ‘thank you’,” said McLean.

Johan Hasser, general manager for SCIBS, said that since 2007, Club Marine’s sponsorship has been an important element of the event.

“We are thrilled that Club Marine is choosing to sponsor SCIBS again and admire their long-standing support of the marine industry and SCIBS, particularly this year. Club Marine is a valued sponsor of SCIBS and our visitors always appreciate their interactive stand close to the marina.”

“SCIBS’ mission is to showcase the boating lifestyle and the marine industry, helping exhibitors to achieve their sales and marketing objectives. Club Marine, as a sponsor and exhibitor, is a vital part of the show and supports our mission.”

According to Hasser, exhibitor bookings continue to flow in and online ticket sales are ahead of this time last year.

“The pavilions are almost sold out and space in the Marine Village is popular too, particularly with the trailerboats, Stand Up Paddle Boards and Personal Water Crafts,” he said.

“This year, the ASMEX conference leading up to SCIBS, will ensure our exhibitors are exposed to the international delegates who attend. Supporting this is the unique SCIBS initiative the International Business Lounge sponsored by the Gold Coast City Council, AIMEX and the Queensland Government.

“There are many additions to the program, such as the glamorous Women on Water luncheon at the InterContintental Sanctuary Cove Resort and a superyacht River Cruise; a dedicated VIP lounge on the Boardwalk overlooking the marina, and lots of hands-on fun for all the family.”
