Date set for Cruise Shipping Asia 2012

NEXT year’s edition of Cruise Shipping Asia is scheduled to take place from October 17-19 at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre in Singapore.

The second annual three-day conference and trade show organised by UBM, which focuses on the cruise industry in Asia-Pacific, will include a full conference programme of panel discussions, a trade fair, as well as business-matching and travel consultant training sessions.

Michael Kazakoff, vice president of UBM Live, said: “As more cruise lines commit to Asia, growth is inevitable, and forums like Cruise Shipping Asia provide an excellent platform for networking and creating business opportunities.”

Rama Rebbapragada, chairman of the Asia Cruise Association, said: “Cruise Shipping Asia has certainly established a strong platform for like-minded cruise industry players and stakeholders for the fruitful discussions and exchange of ideas that are essential in bringing Asian cruising forward into its next phase of development.”
