Developing the marina industries through education, accreditation and research
Welcome to the Marina Industries Association (MIA), the peak industry body for the marina industries in Australia, Asia and the South Pacific regions.
Marinas provide many benefits for boaters and their local communities. The majority of marinas provide recreational and social opportunities and deliver an attractive public waterside leisure interface. Marinas provide a safe environment for boat storage and many are a hub for economic activity and the provision of boating facilities and services. Australia’s 347 marinas provide employment for over 23,000 people and generate AU$ 1.4b p.a. in gross turnover.
Who MIA represents: marina owners, developers, managers and operators of berthing, mooring, storage and slipway/workshop/boatyard facilities connected to sailing, cruising and recreational boating and the suppliers of goods and services to marinas.
Where MIA is active: MIA has members in many countries and has a growing influence in the marina industries across the wider Asian region.
What MIA does: MIA's mission is to support the sustainable development of the marina industries through education, accreditation and research. Click the links below to hear what marina managers have to say about MIA training.
