Previously known as Cruise Shipping Miami, Seatrade Cruise Global took place March 14-17th 2016, this year held in Fort Lauderdale, with the Miami Beach Convention Center being refurbished.
Client Drinks Event: Intercruises hosted its annual client appreciation reception on the evening of Monday 14th at Vibe Bar on Las Olas Boulevard. Over 100 clients and industry contacts joined the Intercruises team at the event, which finished an hour later than expected due to the excellent turn out.
Trade Show: There was no cardboard stand in Fort Lauderdale, but the sustainable message was still strong as the Intercruises stand has been recycled each year since 2012. The stand was again one of the busiest at the show, becoming a central meeting point for cruise line executives.
“Moderator Mark”: Mark Robinson, Intercruises President, moderated a conference panel entitled “Where to & Why: Factors Influencing Deployment & Itinerary Strategies”, which was watched by a full audience that actively participated in the session, asking challenging questions to the VIP speakers:
- Crystal Morgan, Director of Deployment Planning, Princess Cruises
