Barcelona, Spain, March 2019 – Cruise Ship Interiors Expo Europe is Europe’s first interactive trade fair for cruise ship design, newbuild, and refurbishment. Premiering on 4-5 December 2019, the event provides a gateway for interior designers, architects, outfitters, shipyards, and interior suppliers to meet with Europe’s ocean, river, and expedition cruise line market players working on major refurbishment and newbuild projects.
In 2017, 26.7 million cruise passengers took to the sea. That figure is only expected to grow, with the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) forecasting 30 million ocean cruise passengers in 2019. The European segment of this market is still booming, and with most of the major shipyards being based in Europe (Fincantieri, Chantiers de l’Atlantique and Meyer Werft GmbH) and Barcelona being served by direct flights from all major European cities, the Catalonia capital is an ideal location for the second edition of Cruise Ship Interiors Expo.
Cruise Ship Interiors Expo Europe follows the overwhelmingly successful Cruise Ship Interiors Expo North America, which saw more than 2,800 attendees and an unprecedented 120 per cent re-bookings on-site. Speaking on the upcoming Barcelona event, Cruise Ship Interiors Expo CEO Toby Walters, said: “As Europe’s premier trade fair dedicated exclusively to the marine interiors community, Cruise Ship Interiors Expo Europe will provide delegates with two days of networking, conference sessions, and a soon-to-be sold out show floor.”
Advisory Board Members supporting the event include CEO of MJM Marine Gary Annett; senior engineer outfitting at Carnival Corporation; and president, CEO and interior design head at De Jorio Design International Marco De Jorio, among other industry experts.
