WASHINGTON — Registration is now open for CLIA’s annual Executive Partner Summit, taking place Nov. 14 – 15 in Doral, Florida, about 19 kilometres outside of downtown Miami. The event includes CLIA’s Technical & Regulatory and Port & Destination Forums, offering networking opportunities and engaging seminars.
The Summit, part of CLIA’s Executive Partner Program, creates platforms for members to connect through educational and panel sessions. Back by popular demand, the President’s Panel brings together leaders from the industry’s top cruise lines to discuss the state of the cruise industry, trends and upcoming projects. Attendees also have the opportunity to partake in one-on-one meetings with decision makers from CLIA Cruise Line Members with a special focus on the procurement process.
A new workshop, focused on itinerary planning and a highlight from CLIA’s Port & Destination Summit’s in Europe, is a new addition to the summit. The workshop called ‘To Call or Not to Call’ is an interactive roundtable that includes industry experts and peer-lead sessions aimed at educating attendees about the complexities and best practices associated with itinerary planning from both the port perspective and cruise line perspective.
“The Executive Partner Summit serves as a platform to foster high-level discussions between our port and destination community, industry partners and cruise lines, and is a key driver to ensure that our industry continues to grow by bringing all aspects of the cruise community together,” said Cindy D’Aoust, president and CEO, CLIA.
The event is open to CLIA’s Executive Partners as well as Cruise Line Members. For more details see cruising.org/about-the-industry/events/2015/10/30/clia-executive-partner-summit.
