Registration Opens For Cruise Shipping Miami 2014


Delegate and visitor registration for the 2014 Cruise Shipping Miami conference and exhibition are now open. The 30th edition of the premier annual global cruise industry event is scheduled for March 10-13, 2014, at the Miami Beach Convention Center. For those seeking the most personalized service and highest degree of access to cruise line executives and conference speakers, the VIP All-Access Pass provides everything from complimentary valet parking and concierge service to access to all networking events, the VIP/Speakers Lounge and reserved seating at the State of the Industry session.

“We have substantially enhanced the VIP All-Access Pass program as a means of bringing more value to our customers,” said Daniel Read, director of UBM Live’s Cruise Events Portfolio. “The new VIP Pass provides our guests with a much more robust product offering including unlimited access to more networking events and receptions including the daily VIP Lounge Happy Hours, admission to exclusive workshops, special lunch selections and a whole host of other amenities.”

Several additional types of registration provide cost flexibility and varying levels of access to conference sessions, networking functions and the trade show, depending on whether an attendee registers as a conference delegate, exhibitor delegate or visitor.

Registering early can provide significant savings. The Super Early Bird discount provides up to a $500 savings off the on-site registration rate if booked by Dec. 6. Registering before Jan. 31, 2014, can save $400, while registering between Feb. 1 and March 7, when the price goes up to the on-site rate, saves $300. Group discounted rates also are available on conference delegate registrations for two or more representatives of the same company.
