Expedition Zone

NEW for 2020, we are delighted to announce the launch of the Expedition Zone at Seatrade Cruise Med 2020.

Expedition is the fastest growing segment in the cruise industry, with 34 expedition ships on order – almost one third of the cruise orderbook! Seatrade Cruise Med will offer the chance for exhibitors to meet with cruise line executives, buyers and other suppliers looking to explore new opportunities in the expedition market.

What’s more, the Expedition Zone will host exclusive networking sessions and workshops giving unrivalled access to key decision makers across the sector.


Expedition cruising is a new generation of travel: ‘We need to differentiate from classic cruising. There are confident signs of investment and opportunity for smaller ports to come up with something different - this is an opportunity to get a real taste of local flavour.’

Tim Littley, Senior Director, Deployment & Itinerary Planning at Seabourn Cruise Line.
