Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) will present new ways for travel agents to enhance their clients’ cruise holidays at its dedicated Executive Partner Product and Destination showcase, to be held in conjunction with this year’s Cruise360 Australasia conference in Sydney.
Bookings are now open for the 29 August event, which will allow agent members to find out more about the additional products and services that can be offered by a cruise holiday. It will be held on the same day as an exclusive ship inspection aboard Princess Cruises’ Sea Princess and precedes the main Cruise360 conference on 30 August.
“CLIA’s Executive Partners offer holiday experiences that combine perfectly with cruise bookings and can help agents increase the value and appeal of their cruise offering,” said CLIA Australasia Managing Director Joel Katz. “The Executive Partner Product and Destination showcase provides a forum for agents to learn more about what’s on offer while at the same time earning points towards their CLIA accreditation.”
Executive Partners involved in this year’s showcase include Emirates, Rocky Mountaineer, Journey Beyond, Intrepid Travel Group, The Hotel Connection and Cruise Baltic.
CLIA will award 20 accreditation points to members who attend all seminar presentations during the afternoon, but places are limited and agents are encouraged to register quickly. Attendance is open to registered Cruise360 conference delegates, without additional cost.
To be held at the Hyatt Regency Sydney, this year’s Cruise360 conference will be the sixth staged in Australasia. Keynote speakers will include CLIA’s Global Chair and Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd Vice President, Adam Goldstein.
Early booking rates for Cruise360 are available exclusively to CLIA members for a limited time. For further information and bookings, click here.
