That afternoon, all delegates will attend the cruise trade fair.

On Thursday 16 May, delegates will attend a full day of conference sessions, featuring high profile speakers from across the cruise industry, as well as key notes from outside the sector. In the evening there’ll be a gala dinner with entertainment, both the conference and evening events will be held at new venues.

The final day, Friday 17 May, will be held onboard Queen Mary 2, and will include a special closing conference session, which last year heard from record-breaking explorer, Sir Ranulph Fiennes. Further details of the venues, theme and speakers will be announced in the build up to the event.

In May this year, the conference which was themed #GenerationCruise, attracted a record 650 delegates.

Previous speakers at the Conference have included CLIA global chair Arnold Donald, Royal Caribbean’s Adam Goldstein, Andy Stuart from NCL, and MSC’s Gianni Onorato.
