10th edition of Seatrade Med on course for success

LONDON, April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As the excitement continues to build for the Seatrade Med Cruise Convention in Barcelona this September, the number of participating exhibitors are growing faster than previous events, with over 14% increase on exhibition sales compared to this time in 2012 for the show in Marseille.

Another strong sign of success is the MedCruise pavilion, which is set to be the biggest yet, with over 30 ports already confirmed to back the show and continuing strong interest.

Newcomers to the show are also being supported with the addition of the 'New Supplier Zone', catering for those companies looking to break into the cruise industry and providing the opportunity to showcase their products to cruise industry professionals from around the Mediterranean and beyond.

The exhibition will be complemented by a two and half day conference, discussing the key issues surrounding the rapid expansion of cruise in the Mediterranean region, including a high level cruise line panel discussing the outlook for the region as the world economy moves out of recession. The full conference programme can be found on the Seatrade Med website.

Nina Marston, Seatrade's cruise marketing manager, commented "It's so good for the Med's cruise industry to see this strength of support for Seatrade Med. It provides the ideal business platform for all participants to engage and generate business opportunities, through the different mix in the programme – a high-level conference, showcase exhibition, travel agent training sessions and social networking events. This will be the 10th edition and the event is shaping up nicely."
