Cruise + Ferry 91 Set For May 29-31 In London

Cruise + Ferry, a biennial trade show which focuses on the lucrative cruise and ferry market, has been scheduled for May 29-31, 1991 at the Olympia 2 Conference and Exhibition Center in London, England.

With the cruise industry in an explosive stage of passenger growth and supplier consolidation and with millions of dollars being spent on building new ships and refurbishing existing ones, Cruise + Ferry 91 is expected to draw even more participants than when the show was last held in 1989. A prime component of the show's audience will be senior cruise line executives, who will be able to view the latest developments in passenger ship operations, technology and services under one roof.

Reflecting the huge growth and ongoing investment in the cruise and ferry market, more than 150 companies participated at Cruise + Ferry 89.

The wealth of accumulated expertise represented the largest display ever of specialist know-how in designing, building, outfitting and providing increasingly sophisticated on-board services for the cruise ships and ferries of the future.

With a huge cruise market still largely untapped in the U.S., a resurgence of cruising interest in Europe and the dawn of a new cruise era in Japan and the Pacific, prospects for growth have never looked better.

In the cruise ship business, passenger expectations are rising rapidly and, to stay ahead, owners are looking for new and innovative ideas in design, construction and materials and in providing an ever widening range of passenger services.

The Cruise + Ferry 91 Exhibition will be a unique showcase for these new developments and will provide effective support for companies already active in the industry and for those seeking new market opportunities.

The Olympia, located in the heart of London, was selected to accommodate exhibitors' every display requirement and the spacious display halls will feature the world's largest international exhibition serving every aspect of cruise and ferry operations.

The market for fast ferries has also experienced rapid growth during the last 20 years. There has been a constant increase in demand from operators worldwide and advanced design and technological developments have opened up many more routes for high-speed ferries.

At the Cruise + Ferry 89 Exhibition, international builders of theses ever increasingly sophisticated ships were present from Australia, the U.K., Scandinavia and the U.S., and coverage of this large market will once again be highlighted and increased at Cruise + Ferry 91.

Shipbuilders and specialist suppliers will be able to effectively demonstrate developments in design, equipment, and the increasingly comprehensive on-board services now offered to maximize passenger comfort.
