Newly appointed global Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) Chairman Adam Goldstein has been confirmed as a keynote speaker at next month’s Cruise3sixty Australasia event in Sydney.
Goldstein will deliver the opening state of the industry address at the conference, to be held at The Star on Friday February 27.
His attendance follows the recent move to Carnival Cruise Line by CLIA global President and CEO Christine Duffy, who was to speak at Cruise3sixty Australasia.
Announcing the move, CLIA Australasia general manager Brett Jardine said the organisation was delighted Goldstein would attend the event.
“With almost 30 years in the cruise industry and a decade at the helm of Royal Caribbean, Adam has a wealth of cruise knowledge to share with delegates,” Jardine said.
“We think cruise lines, industry suppliers and agents will all gain something valuable from his address.”
He worked across a range of senior marketing and commercial roles at Royal Caribbean International before becoming CEO of the cruise line, prior to his appointment as the Corporation’s COO.
Goldstein assumed the role of CLIA global Chairman on January 1.
