FCCA Plans for the 20h Annual FCCA Conference & Trade Show



Pembroke Pines, FL (April 12, 2013) – The historic city of Cartagena de Indias, Colombia will set the stage for the 20th annual Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association Cruise Conference & Trade Show, taking place September 30 – October 4, 2013.


Cruise industry partners and stakeholders will join cruise executives from the FCCA Member Lines to share ideas and discuss industry trends throughout a series of tailored events, functions, meetings and more.


Workshops will be available, where executives from the FCCA Member Lines will participate in a series of roundtable discussions in the areas of marketing, shore excursions and operations to teach participants about the latest trends/developments and help them learn how to maximize cruise tourism’s benefit.


To guarantee attendees’ opportunity for individual attention from the executives, the FCCA will pre-set one-on-one meetings with select cruise executives for pre-registered delegates registered and paid before August 15.


Increased concentration on the trade show floor will provide a steady flow of attendees and gain the attention of the cruise executives and industry stakeholders. With an expanded number of booths and special destination pavilion options, this will be the perfect way to showcase a destination and its product as a team—from vendors and tour operators getting their product(s) onboard to destination ministries and port operators increasing their calls. This is the best way to make the greatest impact and most impressive showing at the FCCA Trade Show.


Choosing to fly with Avianca or Taca, the official airlines of the 20th annual FCCA Cruise Conference and Trade Show, will allow you to enjoy premium services on land and onboard. Access discounts from 15% to 20% for flights within Colombia and discounts from 10% to 20% on international flights. These discounts are only available on applicable fares on flights operated by Avianca or Taca.

Created in 1972, the FCCA is a not-for-profit trade organization that provides a forum for discussion on tourism development, ports, safety, security, and other cruise industry issues and builds bilateral relationships with destinations’ private and public sectors. By fostering an understanding of the cruise industry and its operating practices, the FCCA works with governments, ports and private sector representatives to maximize cruise passenger, crew and cruise line spending, as well as enhance the destination experience and increase the amount of cruise passengers returning as stay-over visitors.
