Working with Ayesha Khan, Senior Designer, Jeffrey Beers International, we’re designating 22 April as our Day Designed for You. Ayesha has contributed to the design of 10 cruise ships across the Costa, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity and Disney Cruise Line brands, and has curated the day to be a designer’s dream.
To start the day, Ayesha will host one-on-one interviews with design executives from Virgin and Silversea as they introduce you to the latest in interior style. Then in the Designing Women Panel, Editor of Starboard Magazine, Catherine Martin, will speak with Francesca Bucci, President, BG Studio, Anne Mari Gulikstad, CEO, YSA Design, and Paris M. Swann, AVP, Architectural Design, Celebrity Cruises, on the importance of female role models in the industry.
Designers and decision makers who push the envelope are specially invited to join us for an exclusive Interior Designers Lunch, an invitation-only networking event in addition to the 95+ hours already baked into the event schedule.
Throughout the day, the Design Lounge will serve as the hub for the industry’s design power. This special section of the show floor will showcase the inspired vision of modern cruise interiors, and is your dedicated space to collaborate with cruise lines and fellow creatives. You’ll be able to see and even feel the newest ideas in interior design. And what couldn’t make it to Miami Beach, virtual reality will bring to life.
In between exploring the show floor for inspiration, the afternoon will feature the Design Executive Roundtable, where design and interior masters, Ellen Bettridge, President and CEO, UniWorld, and Dee Cooper, Senior VP of Design for Virgin Voyages, share their industry-leading visions.
Finally, all are invited to a special Design Reception to cap off the day. But, chances are, it will be only the beginning of your next great chapter in design and ship interiors.
