Alan Morgan - Avon Trade Mission
  The Trade Mission, organised by Trade Partnerships UK in association with the British Marine Federation, will see UK marine companies visiting the two countries with the aim of raising the profile of the UK industry. During the mission, the group will be attending The Sydney Boat Show, which, with an attendance of over 76,000, has established itself as one of the most prestigious events in Australia.

Alan Morgan, Managing Director of Avon Inflatables, said "I am delighted to have been invited to join this important

Trade Mission. The Sydney Boat Show is a gateway to the Asia-Pacific market, which makes this a wonderful opportunity to show the rest of the world what the British Marine Industry is made of."

Avon, who have been building hand-made inflatables for over 40 years, will also be attempting to make a mark on the New Zealand market, which has grown significantly since the success of the America's Cup there a few years ago. Apart from boosting awareness of the quality of UK marine products, it is hoped new business in the marine equipment and consultancy industries will be formed.
