Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) has increased the scale of its Cruise360 Australasia Conference in Sydney next year, releasing additional tickets after the easing of venue capacity restrictions in NSW.
CLIA said the event will now take place on a scale similar to past years, providing a chance to reunite the region’s wider cruise community.
Scheduled for Friday 4 March 2022 at the Hyatt Regency Sydney, Cruise360 will mark CLIA’s first regional in-person gathering since the beginning of the pandemic.
Postponed from 2021, the rescheduled event will offer a program of keynote presentations, industry updates and interactive panel discussions – each designed to give travel advisors essential insight as the cruise sector forges its path to recovery.
Cruise360 Australasia is open to all CLIA members, with earlybird rates available for bookings made by December 31, 2021.
The event will see the return of CLIA’s supporting Cruise360 Tradeshow, with 29 partners already signed up to participate, including Regent Seven Seas Cruises, Oceania Cruises, Scenic, Seabourn, Pontant and Silversea. Non-cruise operators participating include Hong Kong Tourism Board, Singapore Tourism Board, Tokyo Tourism, Port of Seattle, Tourism & Events Queensland and Journey Beyond.
Delegates will be also be invited to a new industry-wide welcome cocktail party, to be hosted on the evening of Thursday March 3, 2022.
Full details and the program line-up will be announced soon.
