Cozumel, Mexico, will host the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association’s 2015 Cruise Conference and Trade Show from Oct. 5 to 9, for which the FCCA announced workshop topics and panelists today from Pembroke Pines, Florida, to help attendees optimize their businesses.
To allow participants to stay abreast of industry news and tap into future developments from cruise tourism, the trade event will provide insight into trends with a CEO Roundtable, facilitating connections with various key industry leaders, including executives from Carnival, Disney, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian and other high-profile cruise line corporations.
"This is a valuable opportunity for regional destinations and operators to learn how they are being affected by and can take advantage of the industry's latest developments," Adam Goldstein, president and COO of Royal Caribbean Cruises Limited (RCCL), said.
Workshops -- including “Shore Excursion Overview - Key to Your Success," "Overcoming Challenges - Learn from Mexico" and "Tour Operator Insurance Program" -- will address different aspects of the cruise industry, providing updates and overviews on recent developments from speakers in their respective areas of expertise.
This event, which is the biggest cruise conference and trade show in the Caribbean and Latin America, will attract around 1,000 cruise industry professionals and 100 FCCA Member Line executives for a five-day program of business sessions and networking opportunities, including one-on-one meetings, social functions, a trade show and workshops.
The Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association, founded in 1972, is a not-for-profit trade organization providing a forum for discussion on tourism development, ports, safety, security and other cruise industry issues.
