FCCA reports gala tickets are getting scarce
More than 80% of the tickets have sold for the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association's premier event during Cruise Shipping Miami, the FCCA Gala. FCCA said cruise tourism stakeholders are jumping at the opportunity to network with nearly 50 cruise line presidents, ceos and other executives who decide where ships call, what sells on board and how to invest in infrastructure.

'FCCA events always give me an opportunity to meet valuable industry stakeholders,' said Adam Goldstein, president and chief operating officer, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. 'These are the people who have ideas and projects I want, and need, to know about.'

The FCCA Gala is set for March 18 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, with cruise line decision-makers as table and evening hosts. Registration comes with the selection of a cruise executive to join for a sit-down dinner.

Some seats are available with senior people including Terry Thornton, svp itinerary planning, Carnival Cruise Line; Anthony Connelly, svp operations, Disney Cruise Line; Jim Urry, vp entertainment & port adventures, Disney Cruise Line; Keith Taylor, evp fleet operations, Holland America Line; Colin Murphy, svp destination & port operations, Norwegian Cruise Line; Tony Kaufman, svp Asia operations, Princess Cruises; and John Tercek, vp commercial & new business development, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.

A 90-minute cocktail party and silent art auction with a collection from Park West Galleries precede the dinner.

All proceeds will benefit the FCCA Foundation, the nonprofit, charitable organization that funds humanitarian causes in the Caribbean and Latin America.
