‘Highly anticipated comeback’

Remarked Chiara Giorgi, global brand and event director for Seatrade Cruise, ‘We invite our international cruise community to join us as we make our highly anticipated comeback to Asia, bring fresh conference programming to the Mediterranean, and elevate the art of dining at sea to new heights with F&B@Sea in 2024.’ 

She continued, ‘It’s especially exciting to be in Hong Kong this fall for Seatrade Cruise Asia Pacific during a pivotal period of growth and consumer demand for the industry in this region.’ 

Seatrade Cruise APAC

The long-awaited Seatrade Cruise Asia Pacific, supported by Hong Kong Tourism Board, will take place October 24-26 at JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong. 

The annual event returns following a lengthy pause due to the global Covid pandemic and subsequent halt in cruising across the region. Newly revived, it will take place over three days featuring a table-top exhibition and a two-track conference, bringing together key industry leaders and stakeholders from all over the world to the Asian cruise market. 

A wide range of topics across various sessions and presentations will be covered, including the state of the Asian cruise industry, revitalisation of cruise operations, tenacity of the Asia cruise community, and sustainable development.

Seatrade Cruise Med

Hosted by Port of Málaga and Málaga City Council Costa del Sol Andalucía, Seatrade Cruise Med returns to Spain’s Costa del Sol from September 11-12, 2024 with diverse offerings and dynamic sessions, featuring emerging destinations and industry stakeholders. Seatrade Cruise Awards, the premier awards programme for the cruise industry, also returns next year, recognising the best of the cruise industry.

Trade Fairs and Congress Center of Málaga serves as the venue. 


Building upon the success of last year's inaugural event, the second instalment of F&B@Sea will be back in a new and larger venue – the Mana Wynwood Convention Center – providing ample space to accommodate more exhibitors and sponsors. 

Developed in collaboration with industry leaders, the immersive two-day marketplace, held alongside Seatrade Cruise Global, stands as the world's first dedicated cruise food and beverage experience. Attendees can expect to experience new stages and a captivating destination area. 

It takes place April 10-11, 2024 with Seatrade Cruise Global scheduled for April 8-11.
