Six Ways to Maximise Your Time at Cruise Ship Hospitality Expo

Between 10 – 11 November 2021, Cruise Ship Hospitality Expo (CSH) will reunite some of the biggest names in the cruise hospitality industry. However, an expo hall and conference aren’t all we’re offering. Read on to learn six ways you can maximise your time at CSH!

1. Network the day away

Cruise Ship Hospitality Expo will be uniting the entire global cruise supply chain for the first time this year all under one roof. Therefore, we have arranged numerous networking opportunities for you to make those vital connections throughout this unmissable event. After a busy day of making connections, exploring the show floor, and gaining valuable insights at the conference, you can enjoy after-hours happy hour drinks! On Wednesday evening, we’ll be offering drinks and music, along with the chance to network with industry peers and decision-makers. Plus, keep an eye out for our handy networking pods dotted throughout the hall. These discreet hideaways are perfect for an on-the-go business meeting or to host a casual chat with a new connection. Check out all networking events in the full show itinerary here.

2. Attend expert-led conference sessions

Get inspired at our free to attend conference, Cruise Conversations Live America! Over two days, hear industry insights from speakers representing the world’s biggest cruise lines, such as Virgin Voyages, Carnival Cruise Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, and Royal Caribbean Cruise Line. Topics covered will include sustainability, health and hygiene, digital innovations for guest experience, as well as the future of hospitality and service design.
