Tomorrow’s Talent Today

Tomorrow's Talent Today – tailored for both students and industry professionals – will allow attendees to meet with rising stars in cruise, to identify, discuss, and overcome some of the industry’s pain points pertaining to recruitment, staff shortage, crew welfare and training.  

Back by popular demand, it takes place on April 8 and includes a dedicated lunch and networking reception.

Themes and topics

A New Presidents Panel will take place, and geopolitical issues and their impact on cruising will be examined. 

Along with port and destination developments, the conference will delve into entertainment strategies, attracting the new to cruise segment, and expedition-, luxury-, and river cruising. Sustainability and regulation, decarbonisation, artificial intelligence and technological innovations are also among the topics to appear on the programme.
