With Seatrade Cruise Global around the corner, calendars are already filling with workshops, events and meetings. But what about dinner at a private table with a high-level cruise executive or even a president/CEO? This opportunity and more are available during the 22nd annual FCCA Gala Dinner, taking place the evening of Wednesday, March 16.
“The FCCA Gala offers a unique and invaluable opportunity to closely interact with the cruise industry’s key players,” said Micky Arison, chairman of Carnival Corporation & plc and the FCCA. “This interaction is one of the best ways for the stakeholders and the cruise industry to reach mutual understanding and develop relationships and business.”
These key players include the likes of Arison, along with Adam Goldstein, president & COO, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.; Karl Holz, president, Disney Cruise Line; Richard Sasso, president & CEO, MSC Cruises (USA) Inc.; and Andy Stuart, president & COO, Norwegian Cruise Line.
They will be on-hand with all attendees for a 90-minute networking reception and silent art auction sponsored by Park West Gallery before sitting down to host a private dinner with a side of relationship and business development.
Feature tables will be available for the presidents and CEOs, along with select select cruise executives, allowing for the chance to bring a team of up to nine and directly target those that decide where ships call, what sells onboard and how to invest in destinations, infrastructure and technology.
Individual tickets are also available with executives ranging from managers to senior vice presidents. More than just admission, these tickets include full access-from the networking reception to a sit-down dinner with the selected cruise executive.
All proceeds will benefit the FCCA Foundation, the non-profit, charitable organization that funds humanitarian causes in the Caribbean and Latin America. Most recently, more than 8,000 underprivileged children had something to celebrate because one of the Foundation’s annual events, the Holiday Gift Project, delivered gifts, festivities and smiles.
Both the Gala and FCCA Foundation’s efforts are possible because of the featured event sponsorship of Port Everglades, as well as the partner sponsorship of Port Canaveral.
