Cruise Ship Interiors Expo America (CSI), held annually at Miami Beach Convention Centre on 7th and 8th June this year, will have a new look, according to the organiser Elite Exhibitions.
The organisers claimed that the new-look expo has tightly tailored its profile to the needs of the modern buyer and supplier, directly connecting the buyers with products and services they are seeking.
There are six new vessel classes due to be launched in the next two years from cruise lines, such as Disney Cruise Lines, Norwegian Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean, with sisterships scheduled for delivery through 2026.
As cruise brands evolve their designs with next-generation cruise markets in mind, CSI offers a route to the future.
Cruise line buyers can sign up to new concierge tours, offering them a bespoke route around the designers, outfitters and suppliers they need to meet. CSI will also launch a speed networking service, matching buyers and suppliers to help them get to the heart of essential conversations.
CSI is also bigger and even more focused this year. By recognising the symbiotic nature of service and hospitality design, CSH has been merged with CSI.
As a result, everything needed to deliver a successful cruise interior design project from start to finish can be found with CSI’s 300 plus exhibitors (double the 2021 number), the organisers said.
With cruise lines developing sustainability initiatives, CSI is making it easier for cruise line buyers and designers to source products that lead to sustainability gains.
Indeed, day two of CSI (8th June) is dedicated to sustainability, with several conference sessions led by cruise line operators and sustainability experts, breakout workshops held on exhibitor stands and a route etched through the show floor displaying the most sustainable products and services.
