FCCA PAMAC Platinum Event Gathered Cruise Line Executives and Prominent Industry Stakeholders to Talk Business in Belize
San Pedro, Belize. (June 21, 2013) - Over 20 senior-level cruise executives traveled to Belize to meet with a congregation of FCCA Platinum Members during the FCCA PAMAC Platinum Event. Taking place from June 19-21, the event featured numerous meetings and functions to foster business relationship building; promotion of members' products and destinations; discussion of industry trends; idea brainstorming; and much more between some of the key decision makers throughout the cruise lines and crucial stakeholders from the destinations.
One of the most important proceedings was the PAMAC Meeting, where the latest developments and issues in the industry or any topic/question offered by the members were discussed by an expert panel in order to stay informed on all of the most recent trends and how to best actualize the knowledge gained.
Also featured were one-on-one meetings with cruise executives selected by the members, which let members promote and pitch their products to cruise executives that decide what to offer onboard and which ports to include for current and future itinerary development. The meetings also offered the executives' insight and any necessary input to make a viable business model that coincides with the cruise industry's standards and requirements.
Receptions and organized dinners further fostered the relationships between the members and executives, while allowing for more opportunities to learn from each other.
The FCCA is proud to offer these events for its members to develop their businesses; cultivate ideas; and establish mutually beneficial relationships with some of the most prominent figures and decision makers throughout the industry.
