Cruise360 gets interactive

Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) Australasia has expanded this year’s Cruise360 Australasia conference to include interactive discussions and workshops as well as a range of keynote addresses from international cruise executives.
The event this year is being held at the Hyatt Regency Sydney on 25 August, and will be followed by an inspection of the latest addition to P&O Cruises’ fleet, Pacific Explorer, the following day.
Managing director Joel Katz says delegates will now have a choice of educational breakout sessions, designed to help boost their business.

‘The workshops will cover topics integral to the success of cruise travel agents, such as marketing to millennial travellers, using social media to grow a business and leveraging personal branding,’ Katz says.
There are also two new international speakers for the event: Seabourn’s recently appointed senior vice president global sales and marketing Chris Austin and the senior vice president commercial port operations and international for Carnival Cruise Line, Terry Thornton.
Meanwhile, group president of Princess Cruises and Carnival Australia Jan Swartz will deliver a keynote address on the future of the cruise guest experience. Azamara Club Cruises President and CEO Larry Pimentel will deliver the afternoon keynote address, which will put the focus on how to leverage social media to tell a story and grow a business.
