Gold medal ad opps, PWC prize at Melbourne show, AIMEX tourism triumph
Welcome to another news-packed week. There are heaps of features this week to inform and build your marine business - opportunities, product reviews, news and opinions.
First up, new research predicts tablet devices will overtake PCs in sheer numbers by 2015. This is a massive milestone in the uptake of personal communication and a consumer trend that advertisers are moving swiftly to adapt to. It's a 'NOW' world in all facets of delivery - communication, entertainment and news.
Our own research shows 50% of our readers do not wait to sit down with their laptop or their desktop computer to discover the latest marine, boating, cruising and sailing news – they are online on their mobile phones and tablets.
So marine businesses have to advertise online. It makes sense after all - to catch fish you have to fish where the fish are!
