For One on One Meetings with Cruise Executives Local Business Community Encouraged to Register Online for FCCA Cruise Conference & Trade Show

Businesses seeking one-on-one meetings with cruise executives from the St. Maarten/St. Martin business community, must first register to participate in the 21st Florida Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) Conference & Trade Show from October 6-10.

Registration is easy and it allows companies to profile and promote their services or products to the cruise industry at the cruise conference and trade show.

Delegates are hereby informed that the process to start registering for one-on-one meetings with cruise executives is currently underway. These meetings are first come, first serve, and requests will be sent based on the time of registration.

Registration can be done at the following address:

The later a delegate registers for the conference, the less of a chance they have of getting one-on-one meetings. Only delegates have access to meetings and workshops, not exhibitors.

The conference and trade show will attract to the destination more than 1000 cruise industry partners, including close to 100 cruise executives from October 6 to 10.

The focus of the conference is on developing business, relationships and knowledge during the event’s four-day series meetings, workshops and social functions, and one of the best occasions for this is during the numerous one-on-one meetings.

Delegates have up to three meetings with their selected cruise executives, who represent the various departments of their cruise line(s), including operations, purchasing, marketing, shore excursions and government relations.

Each one-on-one meeting allots 15 minutes for delegates to privately discuss with and receive personalized input from a cruise executive that can positively impact their business in many ways – from selling a product or shore excursion on-board or increasing ship calls to tailor-making an excursion/product or developing infrastructure that the cruise lines and destinations need.

For cruise executives, ports and destinations, cruise and tourism agencies, attractions, ship agents, suppliers and tour operators, the annual FCCA Cruise Conference & Trade Show is the premier industry event of the year to meet key industry players, analyse trends and discuss current issues.
