The Asian cruise horizon is gleaming brighter as the industry gears up for the most anticipated event of the year, the Seatrade Cruise Asia Pacific. This grand convergence will anchor at Hong Kong’s prestigious JW Marriott Hotel from 24-26 October 2023.

After a contemplative four-year recess, this colossal event, backed fervently by the Hong Kong Tourism Board, aims to set the tone for the industry’s resurgence, echoing its theme – Rebuilding Asia Cruising Together.

Glimmers of hope are apparent as many Asian regions exhibit promising signs of returning to their illustrious pre-pandemic cruising levels. With some of the biggest names in the cruise line industry already cruising the Asian waters and the entry of new contenders, the buzz is palpable.

Seatrade has played a pivotal role in uniting cruise aficionados for over four decades and has fostered growth in this burgeoning market. “Our steadfast commitment to propelling the Asian cruise market has never waned, and we eagerly anticipate the promise this event holds,” remarked Chiara Giorgi, the Global Brand and Event Director for Seatrade Cruise.

This gala event promises to be a treasure trove of knowledge, insights, and networking opportunities. The heart of the event, the conference agenda, will delve deep into regional challenges and possibilities. With the cream of the crop from the cruise industry on its panel, the highlight is the State of the Asian Cruise Industry session. Here, the industry’s current pulse and future prospects will be dissected.

On the exhibition front, the Supplier Showcase Zone will be a magnet for all, with an array of ports, service providers, and destinations from across Asia flaunting their state-of-the-art amenities and innovations.

Seatrade Cruise Asia Pacific doesn’t just stop at discussions and exhibitions; it aims to forge connections. Attendees can look forward to stellar networking receptions across the three-day extravaganza.

With its mesmerizing cityscape skirting the Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong stands tall as a formidable cruise hub for several renowned brands. This cosmopolitan city becomes a fitting backdrop for Seatrade Cruise Asia Pacific’s grand re-entry.

The Hong Kong Tourism Board, an ardent supporter of this event, recognizes the profound implications of hosting such a monumental event post-pandemic. Mr Kenneth Wong, the General Manager of MICE & Cruise, expressed his enthusiasm, “This is not just about hosting a premier event. It is a testament to Hong Kong’s pivotal role in global cruising. As the world watches, we are excited to unveil the new face of Hong Kong’s travel experience.”
