Gibraltar at Cruise Shipping Convention

The Port of Gibraltar will be participating in the 21st edition of the Seatrade Cruise Shipping Convention, the international exhibition and conference serving the cruise industry.

The event, which opens today in the Miami Beach Convention Centre, Florida consists of four days of convention and three days of trade show.

The Port of Gibraltar will not have its own stand this year, but instead will be represented in the cruise destinations pavilion of the trade show as part of the Medcruise organisation.

Medcruise Vice-President Albert Poggio, and the Gibraltar Port Authority’s Chief Executive Tony Davis will be attending the convention. Mr Poggio will be addressing the World Cruise Tourism Summit that takes place today.

“With the steady increase in growth that the cruise industry is enjoying, it is important that Gibraltar, as one of the principal Mediterranean ports of call, should participate in this event,” said the Minister for Trade, Industry and Communications Joe Holliday.

“It is at this forum that we can best show the industry the developments that are taking place in Gibraltar to enhance the destination for both new and returning cruise passengers. The promotional and networking opportunities afforded by Seatrade are second to none.”
