Pembroke Pines, FL (February 8, 2010) – Fifty cruise executives will serve as hosts for an evening that features the unique opportunity to interact with some of the cruise industry’s top decision-makers.
Sponsored by the Port of Miami ,the 16th Annual FCCA Gala Dinner and Entertainment Extravaganza will be held Wednesday, March 17, 2010 at The Miami Beach Convention Center and is a premier social event.
Guests can purchase tickets to sit at tables hosted by the cruise line executive of their choice, each representing the member lines of the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association. Companies that purchase an entire table with an executive will be recognized as a sponsor in event publications and with a plaque presentation during the dinner.
