NMMA Canada

Dec 10, 2019

NMMA Canada is looking to apply for the CanExport Associations grant (formerly the Global Opportunities for Associations/GOA grant) again this year to support Canadian marine manufacturers. This grant would cover up to 75% of the costs for new, or expanded international business development activities. The association is looking to apply to the Biograd Boat Show, Genoa Boat Show and Sydney International Boat Show. The EU markets are an especially good opportunity with the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement in place between Canada and the EU. If you are interested in visiting, or exhibiting at any of these shows, or have other markets you would like to explore, please contact Constantin Urtilescu. Here is some information on each show:
Biograd Boat Show
Biograd Boat Show is Croatia’s largest boat show. It is also Eastern and Central Europe’s largest in-water show. The show ran from October 17-20 this year and it will be the show’s 21st year in production. For more information please visit https://www.bbs.com.hr/
Genoa Boat Show
The Genoa Boat Show ran from September 19-24. Known as the Mediterranean’s largest event, 2019 was the 59th edition of the show. It is a multi-specialized boat show with a single event containing 4 boat shows, each complementary to one another, but also individualized. For more information please visit https://salonenautico.com/en/
Sydney International Boat Show
The Sydney International Boat Show ran from August 1-5 and is the premier boating event in Australia. The show caters to both B2B and B2C audiences. For more information please visit https://www.sydneyboatshow.com.au/

Lead by Executive Director Marie-France MacKinnon and executed by her team and their public affairs firm, BlueSky Strategy Group, the results were impressive. The NMMA Canada Board of Directors were organized into teams with business interests and special skills matched up to politicians and senior bureaucrats to most effectively present the marine industry’s agenda of issues.
