"The ICOMIA Marinas Group has held events across Europe, the US, Australia and Asia. Now the 2016 edition of the renowned ICOMIA World Marinas Conference goes back to its roots - to Amsterdam - where it all started in 1993 with the first Conference. With one of the highest densities of marinas in the world, The Netherlands has a rare advantage in the global marinas industry. ICOMIA World Marinas Conference 2016 will be an exceptional learning experience for professionals in the marina and nautical tourism field. If you want to be ahead of the future of your marina, then we are looking forward meeting you in Amsterdam."
"It started over 20 years ago! The first ICOMIA World Marinas Conference was organised in the Netherlands in 1993. The choice was perfectly logical: watersports has its existence in our country. The first pleasure craft was Dutch built 400 years ago and the first marinas and yacht clubs started in Holland. HISWA Holland Marine Industry represented the industry since 1932 and wants to welcome you back! Not only to experience the rich maritime history but especially to present the state of the art quality marinas and the huge diversity of new leisure concepts in the Dutch Yacht Valley. Welcome to the Netherlands and keep in touch with the Dutch."
