CLIA to showcase world’s great cruise ports and destinations

The Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) will offer insights into some of the world’s great ports and cruise destinations in its latest online education initiative for members.

The first Cruise Port & Destination Virtual Showcase, to be held between 1 December and 10 December, will offer presentations from 13 CLIA executive partners and provide practical insight to help cruise clients get the most from their visit.

Members will be able to learn more about each destination, including helpful information like the location of cruise terminals, details on public transport services, touring options and insider visitor tips.

CLIA’s Australasian director of membership and events, Marita Nosic, said the virtual showcase would cap off a busy season of online events for members.

“CLIA’s online event series has given travel agents a way to continue their education and improve their selling skills at a time when we haven’t been able to get together in person,” she said.

“The Cruise Port & Destination Virtual Showcase will be our final online event for 2020 and will offer valuable insight to help ensure clients have a rewarding visit.”

Showcase presenters include Tourism Western Australia, Singapore Tourism Board, Tourism Queensland, Port of Seattle, Tourism Northern Territory, Korea Tourism Organization, City of Dubrovnik, Cruise Baltic, Visit Monaco, Hong Kong Tourism Board, Cruise Atlantic Canada, PortMiami, and Tourism New Zealand.

Participants can earn three CLIA accreditation points for each destination presentation they join live after completing a short quiz. There are also cruise destination prize packs to be won by collecting destination code words during each presentation.

CLIA’s global chairman, Adam Goldstein, will be speaking at the travel industry’s most thought-provoking conference, Travel DAZE 2020, next week. To find out more or to register, click here.
