We have continuously reviewed the situation with regard to holding Seatrade Cruise Global in April 2020. Up until recently, the majority of industry feedback indicated that we should try to continue with the event as scheduled if possible.
It’s clear now however, that this is not possible due to the numerous globally imposed travel bans and the latest restrictions related to running events within Miami-Dade County, as well as latest feedback we have received from many of you.
We therefore confirm Seatrade Cruise Global 2020 has been postponed and that we are working with our association partners and you, our customers, on alternative options.
Your feedback has consistently shown us that our shows bring the cruising community together and facilitate meaningful relationships, which are more important now than ever. It’s clear that all of us within the cruise industry want a platform, however that cannot take place in April.
We hope that this proactive move allows us all to stay safe and conduct business in what we anticipate will be a less uncertain timeframe later this year.
The Seatrade Cruise team is continuing to work in the coming week to look at the full range of options and address any questions that exhibitors, delegates and sponsors might have. We thank you for your continued support and patience with us through these challenging weeks.
These are unprecedented times as we look to reinvent and reposition our events to adapt accordingly, while still bringing you the dedicated platforms for meetings, collaboration and business generation. We will issue more information shortly as we firm up more details. Please check on the Seatrade Cruise Global website which will be updated accordingly.
As always, we look forward to continuing to work with you as our partners, customers and industry colleagues on Seatrade Cruise events taking place in the second half of 2020 and to seeing many of you at Seatrade Cruise Med | 16-17 September | Malaga, Spain, and we appreciate your patience as we finalise new dates for Seatrade Cruise Global.
