The largest cruise conference in the Caribbean launches this week in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association Cruise Conference and Trade Show is a four-day event that will bring together more than 1,000 cruise tourism stakeholders and 100 senior executives for a series of meetings, networking functions and workshops.

“The FCCA Conference & Trade Show puts cruise tourism stakeholders in the middle of the action,” said Micky Arison, chairman of Carnival Corporation & plc and the FCCA. “From tour operators launching their first tour to destinations building a new port, this is the place where decisions and developments are reached and relationships are made to pave the way for future business.”

This year’s event, which lasts through Friday, will be the largest in its history, set in San Juan, one of the region’s cruise hubs.

“The FCCA appreciates San Juan’s and the entire country’s efforts and commitment to making the 23rd annual FCCA Conference & Trade Shows one of the best events yet,” said Michele Paige, president, FCCA. “It has pulled out all the stops to woo the cruise executives and attendees, allowing all to see the offerings of and improvements that have led it to impressive recent growth that we look forward to continuing.”
