ICOMIA’s statistics are used extensively within the industry, especially by those interested in investing or seeking to work within certain sectors.Highlights this year include a brand-new format for the editorial, new data entries from two of ICOMIA’s newest Marine Industry Association Members, the Israeli Marine Industry Association and the Association of Estonian Marine Industries, and improved data on boating facilities provided by members of the ICOMIA Marinas Group.
