The keynote will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., Sept. 28, at the Miami Beach Convention Center with all the speakers there in person.
Topics will include operating challenges, protocols and safety enhancements, environmental innovations, community partnerships and an update on 2022-2023 demand and consumer trends.
The theme of this 35th anniversary edition of Seatrade Cruise Global is 'The Future of Cruising.'
Protocols align with those of the cruise industry
'It’s incredibly exciting to bring industry leaders together once again for our State of the Global Industry keynote. We’ve thoughtfully curated this year’s preeminent event to help our community reflect on current challenges and prepare for the journey ahead,' said Chiara Giorgi, global brand and event director for Seatrade Cruise. 'With this in mind, we also collaborated with CLIA and the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association to develop event protocols that align with those in the industry, ensuring an optimal attendee experience while protecting the health and safety of our guests, participants and the public.'
Come together in-person or virtually
'The road to recovery will require us to continue to work as one, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity for all of us to come together either in-person, or through the virtual option, to address the "future of cruising" as we gather at Seatrade Cruise Global,' Craighead said.
