FCCA Plans for the 19th Annual FCCA Cruise Conference & Trade Show
Pembroke Pines, FL (April 23, 2012) -The Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association is gearing up for the premier event of 2012, the annual FCCA Cruise Conference and Trade Show taking place in Curacao, October 1-5, 2012.
Cruise industry partners and Cruise Executives from the FCCA Member Lines will come together to share ideas and discuss industry trends. Executives from the FCCA Member Lines will once again participate in a series of round table discussions in the areas of marketing, shore excursions and operations. There will also be a special guest speaker.
Highlighted attention on the trade show floor will provide a steady flow of attendees to gain the attention of the cruise executives and industry partners. With expanded number of booths and special destination pavilion options, this will be the perfect way to showcase destinations as a team - from vendors who want to sell their products to the lines to tour and port operators, it gives a chance to showcase a destination that wants to display its entire product and make the greatest impact at the FCCA Cruise Conference & Trade Show.
The FCCA will pre-set meetings with select Cruise Executives on a one-on-one basis for pre-registered delegates registered and paid before August 31.
The annual golf tournament, which precedes the Conference & Trade Show, has become an important resource for meeting top executives in an exclusive casual atmosphere, allowing attendees to play in a foursome hosted by a Cruise Executive and contribute to a worthy cause, the FCCA Foundation.
