Seatrade Cruise Global Unveils New Programs and Interactive Offerings for 2022

Seatrade Cruise Global, the industry’s annual B2B event, returns to Miami Beach Convention Center, April 25-28, 2022. Chiara Giorgi, global brand and event director for Seatrade Cruise, said the conference will see more than 500 exhibitors from across the globe discussing the industry’s path ahead, across health and safety, hotel operations, technology and beyond.

New sessions added to the conference program include: “Bucket-list Voyages,” which highlights how cruise lines are building "memorable itineraries and delivering remarkable experiences," both onboard and in destinations around the world; “A Look at Cruising PR and Communications,” which addresses lessons learned in a new era for cruising media communications; and the “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Panel,” which explores DEI and inclusion as it relates to hiring strategies and business initiatives.

With expedition cruising rising on the list of the most sought-after leisure travel pursuits, the conference will set aside a half-day for sessions including “An Insider’s Guide to Expedition Cruising;” “Expedition CEO Panel;” “Staffing and Crewing Challenges and Opportunities;” and "Hybrid Luxury – Expedition Cruising."

Debuting this year, the “Interactive Tech Zone” will offer attendees the chance to learn about the latest advances in science through an information technology playground. 

Another debut is an advanced matchmaking service for optimized networking opportunities. The AI-driven matchmaking software allows attendees to easily confirm meetings in advance, streamline scheduling and sort contacts by sector, title and business type, providing automatic suggestions to strategically pair attendees with viable leads.

With international travel back on the cards, the global cruise community is enthusiastic to meet once again. Industry representatives from over 100 countries will convene at the Miami Beach Convention Center, April 25-28.
