TWLGO introduces trio of new members at annual soiree

TWLGO introduces trio of new members at annual soiree
Cruise line presidents, itinerary planners and shore excursions professionals joined The World's Leading Ground Operators—including three new members—at TWLGO's annual Cruise Shipping Miami reception.

'It's a great catch-up time with friends in the industry,' said Rupert Woodard, md of Excursions UK and co-founder of TWLGO.

The new TWLGO members are Chukka (Jamaica), Ibero Service (Dominican Republic) and Adriatic Excursions (Croatia and Montenegro).

Some 150 people from more than 30 cruise lines gathered with TWLGO members Monday night for Champagne and hors d'oeuvres under the palm trees at The Raleigh Hotel on South Beach.

TWLGO first began hosting its soiree at Cruise Shipping Miami (then called the Seatrade Convention) in 1998 and hasn't missed a year since.

Many at the party are long-time veterans of Cruise Shipping Miami, but there was one new face—Paul Mildon, head of product for Noble Caledonia for 25 years, was paying his first visit to CSM, Woodard said.
