Recognising Talent and Highlighting Success

This year we have introduced the Talent Development Award in honour of those who have successfully managed positive change in their business development, recruitment, and training initiatives.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies have been forced to adapt to tackle the numerous challenges that have been thrown at them. Many businesses have recruited new staff to manage roles in safety and maintenance as well as repurposed talent to ensure the business can best meet the needs of their customers both on and offshore. Moreover, both on-board and port side teams have been working around the clock to ensure passenger safety both in the present and future. Among many, these few examples highlight the adaptability and determination of the cruise industry and its talents.

This year’s awards will honour individuals and teams leading on these projects and will ensure that the positive impact of those striving to make changes is recognised. Whether in HR, Training & Development or Recruitment this is your opportunity to highlight your accomplishments and demonstrate to the wider community how your business has pivoted to modify and improve systems and processes.

Showcasing leadership

Our 2020 Personality Awards celebrate innovation from dedicated individuals representing the cruise sector that have gone above and beyond. Seatrade Cruise Personality of the Year is one of our most coveted awards which puts the spotlight on an individual who represents and embodies success in the cruise industry. Be it someone who’s been in the industry for 25 years or someone who’s new but has already made an impact. There are so many exceptional individuals within the cruise industry and it’s more than ever important to celebrate them!

Seatrade Outstanding Achievement Award will likewise recognise an individual who made an outstanding contribution to continuous growth and innovation of the cruise industry.
