CLIA Updates Executive Partner Membership Program

handshakeCruise Lines International Association (CLIA) announced a restructure of its Executive Partner Membership Program, designed to offer opportunities for the cruise industry to engage in CLIA’s programs and activities.

The 2015 Executive Partner Membership Program will be enhanced by creating communities of interest and adding new events and other offerings for each of the four new categories of Executive Partner membership: Ports & Destinations, Travel Operators, Technical & Supply Chain Providers and Business Services Providers. Additionally, in 2015 CLIA will restrict access to most of its events to members only, and will offer Executive Partner Members preferential sponsorship opportunities.

The geographic-based National, Regional and Global levels in CLIA’s current Executive Partner Member Program will be replaced by Silver, Gold and Diamond membership levels in 2015. Silver-level memberships offer entry-level membership for smaller national markets in Europe, Australasia and emerging markets while Gold and Diamond memberships provide additional benefits for more established markets.
