This symposium brings together cruise industry leaders from Canada and New England to promote the region as an international cruise destination.
European industry leaders also attend, reflecting the importance of transatlantic planning and partnerships.
This symposium for domestic and international cruise business is an opportunity for industry delegates that represent seaport and airport
administrations, travel agents, tourism offices, marine agencies, government partners, experience providers, local product suppliers, destinations,
and cruise lines to market their products and services, discover the newest trends, and keep up with the most recent developments in cruising.
Now in its 18th year, the 2016 symposium will combine the invaluable networking opportunities of previous years with a practical approach
to sharing best practices. The conference's business sessions, panel discussions, and social functions provide cruise industry partners with a
superb forum for the exchange of information and innovative ideas as well as the cultivation of valuable business relationships. Industry experts
will also speak about the contemporary issues affecting cruise lines and all related trades.
As the home port for many cruise lines sailing to Canada and New England, New York provides the perfect backdrop for this event. Known as the
"city that never sleeps," attendees are sure to enjoy its bustling and energetic atmosphere, complemented by the diverse culture and array of
one-of-a-kind sightseeing opportunities - enjoy!
