The cruise industry’s leading annual business-to-business event, Seatrade Cruise Global, returns to the Miami Beach Convention Center Sept. 27-30, marking its 35th anniversary edition in a new hybrid format.

As previously announced, in conjunction with its traditional program, this year’s edition will feature a virtual conference track, giving the community additional options to participate. The four-day event will focus on ‘The Future of Cruising’ with leading cruise lines, ports, destinations and travel service providers weighing in on all aspects of the industry’s continued recovery.

‘Safety is top of mind’

‘As the global cruising business platform, we’re devoted to serving and supporting the entire industry. Coming together to further connections, innovation and education has never been more vital for cruise community stakeholders,’ said Chiara Giorgi, global brand and event director for Seatrade Cruise. ‘Safety is top of mind for us, and our reimagined hybrid program allows attendees to unite effectively, safely and with confidence.’

State of the Global Cruise Industry keynote

The conference program will feature expert speakers and panel discussions, including the highly anticipated annual State of the Global Cruise Industry keynote address.

Highlighted segments include community stewardship, technology innovations, health and safety, sustainability, diversity and inclusion, and entertainment.

Keeping health and safety at the forefront, Seatrade Cruise Global will be guided by Informa AllSecure standards, to ensure a hygienic, productive and high-quality experience. The Miami Beach Convention Center developed and implemented new venue plans, policies and procedures to minimize risk and protect the health of those entering the venue. As part of its enhanced policies, the venue received GBAC STAR Facility Accreditation and has adopted the MB Standard, a program developed by the City of Miami Beach to safeguard employee health to restore consumer confidence. More specific procedures will be provided ahead of the event and protocols will adhere to all city and state regulations.
