Established to promote awareness of the recreational marine industry and to bring industry members together under one global organization, ICOMIA (International Council of Marine Industry Associations) will hold its 6th annual International Marina Conference (IMC) in Oostende, Belgium May 25th – 28th.

Bellingham Marine recognizes the importance of ICOMIA and its members working together to sustain and grow the marine industry. Our strong ties help bring the best in the marine industry together—for ICOMIA and the boating public,” said Chris Lamont, Bellingham Marine’s General Manager for the company’s European operations.
