Events, Boat Shows and Networking
NZ Marine arranges regular events, social functions, and seminars to facilitate networking among members and keep them up-to-date with the latest market intelligence, statistics, business practices, techniques, and technology.
Networking and encouraging the sharing of intellectual property is an important role for NZ Marine. As well as set-piece local events such as the Auckland Boat Show, NZ Marine organises and participates in forums, conferences, and symposia that keep our members’ products and services at the forefront of the international marketplace.
NZ Marine is involved in the following boat shows and events:
- NZ Marine Industry Conference – 7 to 9 August 2023
- NZ Millennium Cup February 2024
- MAST Academy Graduation Ceremony – February 2024
- Auckland Boat Show – a Festival On The Water – 14 to 17 March 2024
- Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show 16-19 May 2024
Organised by the NZ Marine Export Group, the NZ Millennium Cup is a celebration of good racing, great cruising grounds, and exceptional hospitality.
Drawing attention to New Zealand’s beautiful cruising grounds, skilled workforce, and innovative industry, we’re looking forward to delivering an event that showcases the best of our superyacht sector in a relaxed, recognisably-Kiwi style.
A key focus of the regatta is to encourage extended cruising within the country, and the committee works closely with the wider industry to ensure yachts are aware of the diversity New Zealand waters present, as well as the opportunity for world-leading refit and repair services.
