ACA Chief Operating Officer Chris Stec was asked by Marine17, the largest Asia-Pacific Boating Safety Conference, to present on U.S. paddlesports participation statistics, fatality statistics, as well as regulatory and education initiatives pertaining to Stand Up Paddleboarding.
Building on the success of Marine13 and Marine15, Marine17 attracted over 500 attendees and more than 70 exhibitors from across the Asia-Pacific region. This unique 3 day event brought together the marine sector leaders from state and federal governments and industry to discuss the key sectoral issues across the themes of boating business, marinas, boating safety and light commercial marine.

We also thank the Marine17 organizing committee for providing the ACA an opportunity to share our information in this region of the world.
