Registration Opens for 31st Annual Cruise Shipping Miami

Registration is available starting today for Cruise Shipping Miami, scheduled March 16-19, 2015. The cruise industry’s annual international conference and exhibition draws more than 11,000 attendees and nearly 900 exhibiting companies from over 125 countries.

Cruise Shipping Miami offers three levels of participant registration: the premium VIP All-Access Pass includes access to exclusive networking events and meals as well as expedited check-in, dedicated concierge and valet parking, and more; Conference Delegate, which includes three-day admission to the exhibition and all conference sessions, lunch vouchers and invitation to the Cruise Lines Welcome reception; and Exhibit Floor Only, which offers admission to the exhibition and Welcome Reception and a complimentary copy of the 2015 Event Directory/Yearbook.

The cornerstone of UBM’s Cruise Portfolio, Cruise Shipping Miami features a four-day conference that offers sessions Monday, March 16, through Thursday, March 19, and a three-day trade show at the Miami Beach Convention Center that runs Tuesday through Thursday.

“The conference lineup will continue to evolve this year, based on participant feedback and research, but will remain sharply focused on trends and timely topics, and we will bring in new speakers and panelists for fresh perspectives,” said Christopher Dauer, Cruise Shipping Miami’s Brand Director. “And we’re adding new pavilions and creating additional opportunities for buyers and suppliers to interact during the exhibition.”

The current conference lineup includes four core tracks, including Shipbuilding, Operations and Technology; Destinations and Ports; Market Segments; and Product Development. The program will be updated as individual conference sessions are developed and tracks are refined.

The trade show also features business sectors highlighting information technology, ship design and refurbishment, ship services and hotel operations, ship equipment, amusements and recreations attractions, entertainment and destinations.
