The next MedCruise General Assembly will be held on 22-25 June 2016 in Odessa, Ukraine.
This will be the 48th edition of the assembly, which will be the occasion to celebrate of the 20 years of the organisation.
During the four-day gathering, which is held twice a year and at six-monthly intervals, MedCruise port and associated member representatives, together with the press and other cruise industry guests will discuss issues and the latest developments in the sector, as well as debating the implications and prospects of cruising in the Mediterranean and its adjoining seas.
In line with the MedCruise tradition, the assembly will offer opportunities for B2B meetings, local excursions and interactive workshops with cruise line executives.
MedCruise is also known for its excellent research and cruise market reports. At each assembly the latest sets of performance figures and forecasts are presented and scrutinised.
One of the main aims of this extensive cruise industry association, as with others, is to explore growth opportunities through promoting cooperation.
As before, Cruise Business Review will be attending and reporting directly from it.
