The BIA is the national trade association of the recreational and light commercial marine industry. Our members get Australians onto the water, through the manufacture, wholesale or retail of products and services to the recreational boating consumer, and light commercial marine operators.
The BIA works to ensure that our members’ voices – and those of the boater – are heard in all relevant government, community and industry forums, to ensure any decisions that impact the boating lifestyle truly consider the needs of the boating community.
The BIA owns and operates a number of capital city consumer boat shows, including the Brisbane Boat Show. Are members make up over 80% of the marine industry and many will also be found supporting the boating community at shows and events in the Gold Coast region.
