The 2014 FCCA Conference & Trade Show, taking place in St. Maarten from October 6-10, offers ample opportunities to meet with, learn from and pitch products to about 100 of the cruise lines' key decision makers-FCCA Member Line executives that decide where cruise ships go and what is sold onboard.
The focus is on developing business, relationships and knowledge during the event's four-day series meetings, workshops and social functions, and one of the best occasions for this is during the numerous one-on-one meetings. Attendees have up to three meetings with their selected cruise executives, who represent the various departments of their cruise line(s), including operations, purchasing, marketing, shore excursions and government relations.
Each one-on-one meeting allots 15 minutes for attendees to privately discuss with and receive personalized input from a cruise executive that can positively impact their business in many ways-from selling a product or shore excursion onboard or increasing cruise ship calls to tailor-making an excursion/product or developing infrastructure that the cruise lines and destinations need.
This is just one of the many ways Conference & Trade Show attendees receive individual attention from these cruise executives, along with FCCA Member Line presidents and CEOs, who will also attend and participate in the event's specialized workshops, as well as social functions that foster interaction in a laid-back, engaging atmosphere.
And St. Maarten certainly plans to engage the attendees, as the Port of St. Maarten has partnered with the government and local businesses to show its exciting setting, activities and WOW factor through some of the same experiences and venues that cruise passengers see and do.
So St. Maarten is the place to be for anyone looking to establish or grow cruise tourism business.
