EBI and ICOMIA sign agreement

The European Boating Industry (EBI) and the International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA) have signed a new strategic partnership agreement.

The three-year agreement is aimed at fostering collaboration and advancing the interests of the European and global recreational boating industry.

The organisations say it is based on the shared commitment of both associations to promote sustainability, innovation, and growth within the recreational boating industry.

EBI, representing the European boating and nautical tourism industry, and ICOMIA, representing global marine industry associations, say they recognise the importance of cooperation in achieving their common goals.

The associations will collaborate on advocacy with EBI taking the lead in representing the industry in the EU and wider European bodies while ICOMIA will take the lead at the IMO and global level.

Sharing knowledge

The associations will share knowledge to create maximum value for their members, including regular updates by EBI on EU and by ICOMIA global regulatory developments, and collaboration on technical standards and advocacy activities.

“We are excited to renew, once again this partnership with our partners ICOMIA, and place it on an even higher level,” said Robert Marx, EBI president. “This represents a significant step forward in our efforts to strengthen the entire recreational boating industry. By working together, we can more effectively address common challenges and seize opportunities for growth and sustainability.”

Darren Vaux, president of ICOMIA added: “We are delighted to be renewing and refreshing this strategic partnership between ICOMIA and EBI.

“As the global voice of the recreational industry, it is of vital importance that we collaborate closely with our European partners.”

And he added: “This partnership enables our mutual goals of supporting our respective members globally.”
