We've attended quite a few of these shows the past few years and have to tell you, if you haven't attended one, you may want to reconsider. The ship inspections, CLIA trainings, and networking with peers at CruiseWorld 2012 is something invaluable to your agency and will help you become a better travel agent.
If you happen to be attending Travel Weekly's CruiseWorld 2012, we'd love to meet you!
Look for Steph (me) in all my tradeshow fun-ness. :) So you know who to be on the lookout for, we've added a photo off to the right. Complete with trade show floor carpeting and the lanyard around the neck for ambiance - you're looking for the lady on the left.
If you aren't able to attend, make sure to watch our social media accounts for photos, updates, and live blogging of CruiseWorld 2012! You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Host Agency Review's blog.
And, if you aren't sold yet on why you should attend industry trade shows, maybe this picture will help. How's this for an inspiring tourism photo - a picture of the Space Needle with a cruise ship? See you in Seattle at CruiseWorld 2012!
For more information on the event, visit the Seattle CruiseWorld 2012 website. This event happens twice a year so mark your calendar for the fall show in Ft. Lauderdale.
