CLIA announces trade-friendly events and activities at Selling Cruise Day

Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) UK & Ireland has added a raft of trade events to its cruise calendar.  

The events are designed to help agents gain the insight that will further boost their enquiries and bookings. 

The largest-scale event is the CLIA Conference 2022, which will take place in Southampton in the spring. The conference will be a celebration of the diversity of cruise products available, with industry-leading figures on hand to help inform and engage the trade. More information will be announced in due course. 

Next year’s RiverView Conference 2022 will take place in Budapest from March 20-22. Delegates will be given the opportunity to spend two nights onboard river ships and have a full day of business sessions and networking. A total of nine ships across different brands will be made available, as well as a local Budapest excursion and two celebratory dinners. 

Prior to the RiverView Conference is RiverView Week, which be held from November 22-26, 2021. CLIA is working alongside its river cruise partners to bring agents a series of virtual events, including brand updates, expert panel discussions and a session on the Danube ahead of the Budapest event. 

CLIA is also organising several luxury, expedition and river residentials next year. Each trip is for a limited number of attendees and will offer more immersive and intimate educational experiences. Agents will develop their understanding, knowledge and unique selling points of these sectors by having dedicated time with sponsors and experts. Further details will follow. 

In addition, a new-to yacht and sail cruising guide will be published next year. The guide will provide top sales tips, an explanation of how onboard experiences differ from traditional ocean cruising, and recommendations on the type of guests to target with these holidays. The guide, the latest in CLIA’s ‘new-to’ series, will include destination advice and mini-profiles of the different sail and yacht ships.
