Strategic Partners


Launched in 2018, Starboard is a new magazine focusing on mobile hospitality in all its forms.

Born out of an increasingly close relationship between hospitality and transportation, and the idea that travel experiences extend beyond the realms of a traditional hotel, it examines the design, development and operation of cruise ships and river boats, as well as sleeper trains, aeroplane cabins and the forthcoming advent of space shuttles.

Read by all those involved in the creation of mobile hospitality models – from owners, operators, developers and investors to architects, interior designers, consultants and specifiers – it features unrivalled coverage of the projects, people, events and products shaping the industry.
