Just what are we trying to do here?
Global shore excursion suppliers have never been organized into a network and voice for their industry. Whether through fear of competition, or the protection of proprietary product and operations, operators have never coalesced and leveraged their size, knowledge, & needs.
It seems each operator has many of the same hopes, dreams, challenges, & success; let’s share these mutual themes and find the common ground we can all benefit from. The ship orderbook keeps expanding, new ports are constantly being added, together we can keep pace and drive our global success alongside the cruise lines. There is someone on your side, it’s all of us. Let’s find out what were made of (literally, via a survey) and go from there.
