How long would it take to assess an industry-worth of hotel operations and concessions products and services? To test durability and design of cabin décor from dozens of vendors? Or to get in front of thousands of interested buyers, taste test cuisine options, and connect with thought leaders at the forefront of hospitality? We think four days, max.
While Seatrade Cruise Global has been the hub of hotel operations and concessions insight for 35 years, this year we are dedicating an entire ‘Neighborhood’ on our show floor to all things hospitality. We’re calling it the Promenade, a new pavilion featuring ground breaking innovations and must-haves, from delicious food and beverage options, to linens and cleaning supplies, luxurious retail and spa merchandise, to the amazing people who make it all happen. Suppliers include:
- InterPresent Caribbean, Inc.
- The Islands of Tahiti
- Compre Y Compare, S.A.
- C&J Farms
- Nau-T-Girl Jewlery
- C. Creators and Company
- Almondy USA
At the heart of the Promenade, attendees will find the central lounge for networking, a multipurpose space for live cooking demos, presentations and meeting spaces—your chance to establish or strengthen contacts with influential executives, buyers, distributors and others integral to your supply chain. First-hand understanding of all of these items would be impossible to achieve any other way.
To really bring hotel operations and concessions to life, a carefully curated conference program will provide thought-provoking sessions and talks from high level cruise executives and influencers on an array of crucial topics. The connections and insights gathered here have taken companies to the next level, made careers.
No matter which corner of hospitality you’re coming from, the Promenade will give you a 360-degree view of its future.
