Published on : Wednesday, March 22, 2017

CLIA_noRegion_BLKCruise Lines International Association (CLIA), the unified voice of the global cruise community, announced its 2017 Summit at Sea –an exclusive, flagship event for cruise industry stakeholders, taking place from 9th – 12th May 2017 aboard Cunard Cruise Line’s majestic Queen Elizabeth, the company’s newest luxury liner, named for her Majesty the Queen.


Before embarking on the Queen Elizabeth, attendees will receive an exclusive tour of the Airbus Factory producing some of the Emirates A380 aircraft and Carnival Cruise Line’s maritime fleet operations centre, followed by a welcome reception and dinner at the Penthouse Elb-Panorama. In Hamburg and once onboard, welcomed by Carnival chairman, David Dingle, senior cruise industry leaders will engage in business discussions on the most important topics facing the cruise industry today, including an exclusive discussion lead by CLIA Cruise Line Member presidents.


“I am delighted that Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth has been chosen to host the 2017 CLIA Summit at Sea,” said Cunard senior vice president, Simon Palethorpe. “Our ship and crew look forward to welcoming our industry partners and colleagues aboard for what I am sure will be an extremely informative and enjoyable conference.”


While onboard, the more than 150 attendees will also have access to behind-the-scenes tours, networking opportunities and social functions before the cruise docks in Southampton.


This year’s event follows the inaugural Summit that took place last year aboard the MSC Preziosa in the Mediterranean. CLIA’s annual Summit at Sea is an exclusive event of CLIA’s Executive Partner Program. Bringing together key suppliers and partners to the cruise industry, the program boasts more than 300 partners across the port & destination, travel & tourism, technical &supply chain, and professional services providers.


“Ensuring that our community works together toward the same industry goal is key to our success, and that is why coming together at events like our Summit at Sea is so important,” said Bo Larsen, senior vice president, Strategic Partnerships, CLIA. “I am grateful for the hospitality provided by the Cunard team both ashore and onboard, and for the valuable commitment of our industry executives.”
