Do Not Miss This Opportunity…
Meet and Develop Relationships with Dozens of Cruise Executives
Every year we decide which
things to keep in our budgets and which things to take out, determining
which events and functions are the most effective use of our
time, and which ones are not having an impact. Year after year
it is a process of evaluation, action and re-evaluation.
Those of you who have already attended the FCCA
Caribbean Cruise Conference & Trade Show know the benefits
and importance of this annual event for your organization. You
are aware that in a few short months nearly 1,000 members of the
public and private sectors of the cruise industry will gather in
St. Kitts with as many as 100 cruise executives from the FCCA Member
As the Member Lines of the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA)
continue on the fast-track of global expansion, we encourage those of
you who have never attended the FCCA Conference to make your move, stop
evaluating and secure your place at the most important cruise industry
event of the year.

The 12th annual FCCA Caribbean Cruise Conference & Trade
Show will be held in St. Kitts, September 27 – 30, 2005.
The Conference format over the past couple of years has evolved
to be extremely successful and will remain essentially unchanged.
As in years past, the Conference will provide an avenue for cruise
industry partners to come together and exchange information and
ideas in the interactive workshops. These roundtable sessions will
remain interactive to allow for the opportunity to interact with
cruise executives and other delegates with similar interests.
The trade show will once again enable exhibitors to promote their destinations,
products and services. In addition to the normal walk-through by attending
cruise executives, at this year’s exhibition we plan to schedule
strategic visits to all booths by executives, insuring that exhibitors
have an opportunity to meet with the cruise executives that can best
meet their needs.
executives from Carnival Cruise Lines and
representatives from St. Kitts meet at the informal breakouts.
The Conference will also include a business
card exchange cocktail party that will allow delegates to meet some
of the industry’s top cruise executives. As in the past, the
informal breakouts (one-on-one meetings) will be featured. They are
always in very high demand, as these sessions provide delegates with
the opportunity to get to meet face-to-face with the cruise executives
of their choice and cultivate new relationships or strengthen existing
The social functions were a major highlight at
last year’s event in Barbados. This year promises to be no
different as St. Kitts is determined to follow suit. The Conference
presents upwards of ten meal functions, all of which are included
with your registration, that provide all Conference attendees with
the opportunity to meet, interact and socialize with all cruise
executives and other cruise industry partners.
If you represent a destination, port, tourism agency, port agency, attraction,
supplier or tour operation…stop thinking about it, do not miss
this opportunity to meet and develop business and personal relationships
with dozens of the cruise industry’s top cruise executives. The
FCCA promises to continue to improve all aspects of the Conference and
is confident that this year’s event will be the best ever.
