Seatrade Cruise Global Matchmaking: The Next Wave in Making Connections

What does it take to fully engage other event attendees? To totally captivate and immerse them in something so stimulating and valuable that they’re bound to mark their calendars and return year after year?

Typically, an engaged attendee is a satisfied attendee. Give them great content, meaningful learning sessions, some entertainment, and the ability to connect with relevant peers, and the ROI takes care of itself, right?

Well, with a global event like Seatrade Cruise Global, the expectations are even higher. And they should be—it’s the world’s largest (and still growing!) annual gathering of cruise industry pros and suppliers, after all. Sure, the content, learning, , and entertainment is there. It’s a spectacular four days at the epicenter of all things cruise, that’s a given.

But in 2020, #STCGlobal is going next-level with networking...and it all begins well before you even step foot in the Miami Beach Convention Center this April.
