"The FCCA Conference & Trade Show helps cruise tourism stakeholders maximize their business," told Micky Arison, chairman of Carnival Corporation and the FCCA. "In addition to imparting the necessary operational knowledge, the event provides an invaluable resource-knowing the right people-by making it possible to meet some of the industry's most important decision makers."

The event will gather over 1,000 cruise tourism stakeholders and more than 100 FCCA Member Line executives, presidents and CEOs for a four-day series of meetings, workshops and networking opportunities. Registration opened for the 2015 FCCA Conference & Trade Show, taking place in Cozumel, Mexico from October 5-9, 2015.

The event offers a unique opportunity to target representatives from FCCA's 19 Member Lines who decide where ships call, what products are sold and used onboard, and how to invest in infrastructure. Attendees can access these key decision makers in a format that balances business sessions and casual interaction, including one-on-one meetings with pre-selected cruise executives, which provide a chance to promote products and/or receive individualized input; social functions that foster networking and relationship building; and workshops focused on current issues with panels comprised of knowledgeable industry professionals and cruise executives, along with the presidents and CEOs heading a roundtable discussion.

"FCCA events always give me an opportunity to meet valuable industry stakeholders," said Adam Goldstein, president & COO, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. "These are the people who have ideas and projects I want, and need, to know about."

The Trade Show expands this target, allowing exhibitors to capture the attention of this prominent audience. Any booth puts their product, company, or destination on attendees' and executives' minds, but special destination pavilion options provide the greatest impact at the Trade Show by showcasing a destination product as a team-from vendors and tour operators to destination ministries and port operators.

Attendees can also experience Cozumel's exciting setting and activities, with the government and local businesses linking to show what cruise passengers see and do during a stay-over visit and why Cozumel has grown to over three million cruise passengers from FCCA Member Lines.
