It took place in his waterfront office overlooking the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Holliday told guests from around Australia and New Zealand it was a time to put competitiveness aside and celebrate the success of cruising’s comeback since the COVID-19 pandemic.
Workshops and familiarisation trips
He said the ACA has been holding workshops around the country to make sure ports were ready to receive the new arrival of cruise ships.
He said it also has been busy organising familiarisation trips to Australia’s tourist attractions for cruise line decision-makers.
Holliday said a major commitment had been commissioning the Economic Impact Assessment in conjunction with Cruise Lines International Association Australasia, which found the cruise industry injected a record A$5.63b into the economy during the 2022/23 financial year.
Seatrade Cruise Global
He also said ACA’s attendance at Seatrade Cruise Global every year has been vital in connecting with decision-makers.
He wished everyone continued success in 2024.
