The four-day conference program scheduled March 10-13, 2014, at the Miami Beach Convention Center, for the 30th annual Cruise Shipping Miami is to feature four thematic "tracks" for 2014, as follows:
"Ship and Ship Operations"; "Global Geography of Cruise Tourism"; "Market Segments"; and "Cruise Product Development".
"The conference program was developed by our partner Seatrade Communications based largely on feedback from attendees and participants following last year's show," said Daniel Read, director of UBM's Cruise Event Portfolio. "We are continuing the effort we started last year to design shorter, more highly focused panel discussions."
Since 1985 Cruise Shipping Miami has been a major annual event of the worldwide cruise industry. From a small gathering of 150 cruise industry executives in a hotel meeting room in New York City, Cruise Shipping Miami has grown into a four-day conference and three-day exhibition drawing 11,000 attendees, more than 900 exhibiting companies from 123 countries and over 300 international journalists to become the cruise industry's annual marketplace of ideas, products and services.
Cruise Shipping Miami is exclusively supported by Cruise Lines International Association and the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association.
