CRUISE_ATT Blog 1_1280x720.png

Each year, Seatrade Cruise unites tens of thousands of cruise professionals for an epic series of events across the globe. In a year like 2020 – a year with so many unprecedented challenges – coming together as an industry is more important than ever, even if not in person.

Enter: Seatrade Cruise Virtual, a four-day experience where we will converge as a collective to commiserate, swap stories, share best practices, find new solutions, and together chart our course for the remainder of 2020 and beyond...

Our advanced and intuitive digital event platform is rich with features that promise an undiminished, customised, and extremely convenient experience for all attendees. With A.I.-fuelled matchmaking, an insightful conference line-up, interactive workshops, and more, Seatrade Cruise Virtual will help you navigate the current cruising seascape.

Here’s a preview of what attendees can expect this October:

Make Meaningful Connections
Video discussions, virtual networking events, and topic-specific group chats provide multiple opportunities to share ideas and best practices, as well as recent challenges and triumphs. Prefer to meet one-on-one? You can text or video call on the fly, or schedule a meeting with anyone at the event.

80+ Inspiring Speakers, 1 Comprehensive Programme
Make the most of your time and create your educational programme from top-quality sessions across five topic tracks. You can search and filter by day, topic, or speaker to hone-in on the sessions guaranteed to give you bottom-line impact. Oh, and be sure to grab a seat in the virtual Innovation Zone, always a crowd favourite at Seatrade events.

Ask Live Questions to Speakers
Many sessions feature a live chat and Q&A functionality, giving you the benefit of both the speaker’s expertise and the experience of your fellow attendees—all in real-time!

Discover Personalised Matches
A.I.-fuelled matchmaking analyses your profile and provides a focused roster of relevant potential partners you should meet, sessions you should attend, and solutions you should investigate. Machine learning ensures that recommendations get even more targeted as you interact at the event. It’s like having your personal event concierge!

Shop the Show Floor Like Never Before
All the top solution providers will be out in full force, welcoming you to their interactive virtual booths for exclusive content, demos, live instant messaging, games, and more. Doing it virtually allows you to visit suppliers on your terms, get right to the information you need to make informed business decisions, and remain comfortable and relaxed as you balance your shopping with your usual office activities.

Join the cruise community 5-8 October as we come together to tackle the shared challenges of this new reality and emerge more resilient than ever.
