The cruise industry’s premier business-to-business event, Seatrade Cruise Global, returns to the Miami Beach Convention Center, September 27-30, in a new hybrid format. This year marks Seatrade’s 35th anniversary edition.
In conjunction with its traditional program, this year’s edition will feature a virtual conference track, giving the community additional options to participate.
The four-day event will focus on the “The Future of Cruising” with leading cruise lines, ports, destinations and travel service providers weighing in on all aspects of the industry’s critical and continued recovery.
“As the global cruising business platform, we’re devoted to serving and supporting the entire industry – coming together to further connections, innovation and education has never been more vital for cruise community stakeholders,” says Chiara Giorgi, Global Brand and Event Director for Seatrade Cruise. “Safety is top of mind for us, and our reimagined hybrid program allows attendees to unite effectively, safely and with confidence.”
The Seatrade Cruise Global program will feature expert speakers and panel discussions on topics and trends shaping the cruise market – including the annual State of the Global Cruise Industry keynote address, which is always a highlight of the event.
In addition to the State of the Industry, taking place on Tuesday, Sept. 28, other presentations of special interest to the travel retail sector include a new presidents panel, a Caribbean Spotlight hosted by Michele Paige of the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association (FCAA), a look at regenerative travel, as well as an examination of the future of European travel.
Some of the highlights on Wednesday, Sept. 29 include how digitalization is revolutionizing the guest experience, a look at luxury cruising, and a session on story-telling and memorable experiences, which features sharing narrative-based experiences.
Other topics over the three days cover financing, technology innovations, health & safety, sustain-ability, diversity and inclusion and entertainment.
In terms of health and safety, Seatrade Cruise Global will be guided by Informa AllSecure standards, to ensure a hygienic, productive and high-quality organized event experience. The Miami Beach Convention Center developed and implemented new venue plans, policies and procedures to minimize risk and protect the collective health of all those entering the venue.
As part of its enhanced policies, the venue received GBAC STAR Facility Accreditation and has adopted the MB Standard, a pro-gram developed by the City of Miami Beach to safeguard employee health to restore consumer confidence. More specific procedures will be provided ahead of the event and protocols will adhere to all city and state regulations.
