BIA cancels Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide boat shows
THE Boating Industry Association (BIA) has cancelled the Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide boat shows for 2020.
The BIA said boat show exhibitors will be offered a refund of any deposits held.
BIA president Darren Vaux said the decision to cancel the boat shows will enable BIA resources to fully focus on member support at this challenging time.
"The BIA’s core purpose is to support and protect member prosperity... We know that our membership is doing it very tough with this health crisis coming on the top of a difficult summer and we are applying all of our energy into limiting the restrictions on our industry while maximising the available government support.
"We need to come together, support each other, follow the government directives and look after the most vulnerable in our industry and our community." BIA president Darren Vaux said in a media statement.
