"While the cruise industry has always had rigorous health standards, the unique challenges posed by COVID-19 provide an opportunity to raise the bar even higher." - Frank Del Rio, President & CEO, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings

Why Sponsor:

13 April 2021 - The industry seeks suppliers who can integrate stringent health & safety protocols without sacrificing the quality of the experience:

  • The average cost of a booked cruise has risen 120% YoY. With more investment, passengers expect extraordinary experiences.
  • Cruise entertainment has entered a new era of sophistication and immersion. The industry is keen to partner with those who can bring authentic experiences to life, onboard and ashore.

From f&b provisions to hotel products like linens and cleaning supplies, to retail and spa merchandise, hotel operations and concessions are vital to the supply chain.

Why Sponsor:

14 April 2021 - Next generation technology, from mobile apps to wearables, AR and AI, is shaping every aspect of the cruise journey, from pre-holiday planning through disembarking and rebooking:

  • $23.5bn has been invested in new technologies - many cruise ships now have 7,000+ sensors to enable enhanced guest experiences.
  • 74% of cruisers are likely to cruise in the next few years, with two out of three willing to cruise within a year. Your tech could be the difference maker.
