Ted Blamey’s latest assignment for ‘prominent’ Asian nation

Ted Blamey is working on a cruise ship strategy for a mystery client
Ted Blamey’s Sydney-based Chart Management Consultants has accepted a brief to come up with a cruise ship strategy for a ‘prominent Asian nation.’

Blamey, the former head of Sitmar Cruises Australasia and president of Sitmar International who is a regular moderator/panellist at what is now Seatrade Cruise Global and also Seatrade Cruise Asia, founded Chart in 1997.

The company was responsible for the 2013 white paper on the cruise industry in Asia, commissioned by the then Asia Cruise Association and the second 2014 ‘Asia Cruise Trends’ that was commissioned by Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) and released at Cruise Shipping Miami this year.

‘Chart Associate Rod Davies and I were greatly assisted by Carnival Asia’s Bill Harber who is on the CLIA Southeast Asia board and Kevin Leong of (now defunct) Asia Cruise Association,’ Blamey said.

He said Chart has just completed a ‘substantial work’ for the South Pacific Tourism Organisation which is currently being reviewed by SPTO member nations before being available more broadly around the middle of this year.

He declined to name the ‘prominent Asian nation’ at this stage but said ‘we learned a great deal in creating the cruise ship strategy for Papua New Guinea and are looking forward to helping this new client to similar successes.’

Watch this space.
