Cruise360 & COVID 

Having successfully held Cruise360 2021, Cruise Lines International Association is enthusiastic to repeat its success in bringing this influential trade show back to strengthen relationships and build momentum. The cruise and travel industry took the worst hit during COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions, so Cruise360 is much needed to heal the damage. The official dates have been selected for March 29th–April 3rd. Organisers are working with the local government to create a safe fair concept in compliance with federal regulation. The Broward County Convention Center will employ state-of-the-art coronavirus protective measures in order to ensure the wellbeing of everyone in attendance.

Introduction 

Cruise360 is the one and only international trade show servicing the cruise industry that matters. It’s an unbeatable meeting point between cruise lines and suppliers. If you’re interested in making key professional contacts this is where to do it. You have everything you need under one roof – an incredible educational programme, professional development, ship inspections and the full product spectrum on display. Every kind of equipment, decoration, machinery and supplies a cruise ship needs, you can find at Cruise360.

Logistics 

Cruise360 is one of the biggest events for the travel and tourism industry to hit Florida, USA. Now what better city to host this crucial meeting point for cruise lines and travel professionals than Fort Lauderdale. CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association) hosts editions early in the early around late March and early April at the Broward County Convention Center. Only trade visitors can get to the trade show and be sure to check the schedule for opening and closing times during all six days of Cruise360. The Broward County Convention Center has recently been expanded and occupies a great property right on the beach. One of its bestselling points is the waterfront plaza and there’s also hotels right on the exhibition grounds. The best way to commute to the center is via car, but if you’re not driving in, there are several bus lines that connect you to most of the city. 

What Are People Saying? 

• “With industry-leading protocols in place guiding the resumption of operations in Europe and Asia, and with the growing availability of vaccines, it was you and your voices that successfully made the case for cruise resumption in the United States,” – Kelly Craighead, CLIA’s president and CEO;

• “It was definitely exhilarating reuniting with so many of my industry colleagues and friends after more than a year of no 'in-person' events. The sold-out event was representative of the industry’s continued resiliency and passion,” – David Crooks, senior vice president of product and operations for World Travel Holdings.

• “It’s so great to be back in person—learning and networking. Everyone attending is so enthusiastic and committed to excellence. Cruise360 was a total confidence-builder. The restart of cruising is getting stronger and rapidly gaining momentum,” – Brad Anderson, co-founder, Avoya Travel

• “I felt the session was full of insightful information from Kelly Craighead. We’re feeling hopeful for the future and happy to learn that 50 percent of ships belonging to partners who are a part of CLIA will be sailing by the end of the summer," – Michelle Fee, co-founder and CEO, Cruise Planners.
