CLIA To Host Port & Destination Summit in Tenerife


Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) will host its annual Port & Destination Summit on Sept. 20 in Santa Cruz, Tenerife, a day ahead of Seatrade Cruise Med (Sept. 21-23), the largest cruise industry gathering in Europe.

Restructured and enhanced based on member feedback, the annual summit will deliver audience-generated content. Now in its third year, it is the key event for anyone in, or seeking greater engagement with, the global cruise port and destination community.

“The Port & Destination Summit offers an unrivalled opportunity to connect with key industry players from various segments of our community, providing the perfect setting to collaborate and make a lasting impact on the future of our industry,” said Bo Larsen, VP, strategic partnership, CLIA. “Last year’s summit was very well received and we are developing and enhancing the platform for this year. I am delighted to welcome our members to Tenerife.”

The event platform gathers decision-makers from cruise line port operations, destination development, shore excursion and itinerary planning to join CLIA executive partners representing port authorities, port agencies, tourism and destination management organizations and related maritime professionals for a full day of networking, education and high-level discussion on matters of fundamental significance to the port and destination community.

Registration for the summit is now open and early bird rates are available until July 14.
