“I am so impressed with the VIP Program. It makes attending the show effortless, and opens the door for our entire teams to be present. We greatly value making connections, seeing new products, learning from the conference sessions, and the amazing networking at the CSI shows.”
My Nguyen – Director Interior Design | Holland America Group
“Coming to the Expo has been great. Walking around this morning it’s been incredible to see some of the ideas – I saw one idea that I just went ‘wow, why haven’t we thought of that sooner’ – and this is great for our industry. It’s been very valuable and very exciting to be able to meet in person, to be here and touch and feel, and shake someone’s hand and talk to them in person, talk about our project, about their product, you cannot replicate this on a teams or zoom call – you can only do that in person.”
Jason Gelineau – Head of Product | Explora Journeys
“The speakers are invaluable in sharing and addressing issues in the industry.  The exhibitors have an amazing line-up of products the industry is seeking that the individual cruise professionals may not have had an opportunity to see.  They offer many of the key criteria the speakers identify is needed in the industry.”
