Seatrade's Cruise Shipping '90 Conference & Exhibition Set For March 20-24 In Miami

The Seatrade Organization is expecting another record attendance for the Seatrade Cruise Shipping '90 Conference and Exhibition, which will be held at the Fontainebleau Hilton Hotel in Miami Beach, Fla., from March 20 to 24, 1990.

The exhibition area, which has virtually doubled in size every year since the event was first held six years ago, is already sold out for 1990, and extra space had to be found to meet the heavy demand.

Seatrade Cruise Shipping '89, held in March of this year, was attended by more than 1,400 people from the cruise industry worldwide, including some 600 registered conference delegates, making it one of the world's leading cruise industry gatherings.

An expanded program for 1990 is now being assembled with some of the cruise industry's leading personalities taking part as speakers, including: Trygve Hegnar, chairman and chief executive officer, Kloster Cruise Limited; Richard D. Fain, chairman and chief executive officer, Royal Admiral Inc.; A.

Kirk Lanterman, president, Holland America Line-Westours Inc., and chairman, Cruise Lines International Association; and Robert H.

Dickinson, senior vice president, sales and marketing, Carnival Cruise Lines.

One session of the conference will be devoted to the potential for expanding cruise sales into new market areas. For example, Fumio Tamamura, chairman of the board, Fuji Tours International Limited, and vice chairman, Japan Association of Travel Agencies, will discuss the vacation market in Japan and the outlook for selling cruises in what is considered one of the major potential growth areas for the industry.

The emphasis on the technical and operations side of the industry will be expanded, with a special seminar emphasizing cost control, efficiency and safety in cruise vessel operations.

Another new feature will be a seminar session devoted to the issue of maximizing on-board revenues, looking at the full range of on-board facilities, from casino gambling to improved communications systems for passengers.

The program for Seatrade Cruise Shipping '90 Conference and Exhibition is being further expanded this year, with a much stronger program of social events and receptions.

The opportunities for ship inspections are being increased, so that delegates will be able to see the very latest generation of cruise vessels in the Port of Miami.

Participants at the Seatrade Cruise Shipping '90 Conference and Exhibition are drawn from the following categories at very senior levels: cruise line owners and executives; travel agents and tour operators; resort hotel and airline executives; port and destination executives; bankers and insurers; builders and equipment suppliers; suppliers of leisure and sporting facilities; investors and potential entrants to the cruise industry, etc.

Seatrade Cruise Shipping '90 of- fers anyone who is involved in the cruise business a chance to make new business contacts, discuss topics of mutual interest, hear top cruise personalities give their views on the industry, see the latest product innovations and inspect the latest cruise vessels in the Port of Miami.
