Mingle with Top-Level Cruise Line Executives at the FCCA Gala
Pembroke Pines, FL (February 12, 2013) -The FCCA Member Lines' top-level cruise executives will serve as hosts for the 19th annual FCCA Gala Dinner and Entertainment Extravaganza on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. The evening will begin with a 90-minute cocktail reception, where you can meet and mingle with some of the cruise lines' CEOs and presidents, along with decision-making cruise line executives from operations, tours, itinerary planning, marketing and every other aspect of the cruise industry. A silent art auction featuring a magnificent collection from Park West Gallery will also take place before the dinner commences.
However, the night's main festivity is the dinner itself, as the tables are hosted by FCCA Member Lines' cruise executives, presidents and CEOs, and Gala guests purchase tickets to sit with the host of their choice for a night of productive networking and valuable insight.
The Gala will benefit the FCCA Foundation, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the non-profit, charitable organization. Created in 1993, the Foundation funds humanitarian causes in the Caribbean and Latin America. Numerous worthy projects receive funding each year throughout the FCCA Foundation. Most recently, the FCCA Holiday Gift Project brought smiles to the faces of nearly 7,000 underprivileged children throughout the Caribbean and Latin America.
The FCCA is a not-for-profit trade organization composed of 18 Member Lines operating nearly 200 vessels in Floridian, Caribbean and Latin American waters. Created in 1972, the FCCA’s mandate is to provide a forum for discussion on tourism development, ports, safety, security, and other cruise industry issue and to develop 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.
