Cruise Workshop

February 8, 2006
San Diego, California

Keeping up-to-date on the booming cruise industry is important for both homeports and ports of call. AAPA’s Cruise Committee has designed a special program for port managers, operations and engineering professionals, cruise facility consultants and marketers to address emerging trends for cruise ports. This seminar will tackle topics such as effective cruise line/port partnerships, environmental issues, developing cruise facilities for multiple uses, dealing with regulatory requirements at cruise facilities, and destination marketing. This is a great opportunity to network with cruise line executives and others in the cruise port business.
