By: Caribbean Journal Staff - July 24, 2017

The Caribbean’s largest cruise tourism trade show will take place in Merida, Mexico this October.

The Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association’s FCCA Cruise Conference will bring together 1,000 stakeholders from across the cruise and travel industries.

The event, which will run from Oct. 23-27, will also feature more than 100 cruise line executives.

“I am excited to see the destinations’ and stakeholders’ displays and demonstrations at the FCCA Trade Show,” said Adam Goldstein, President & COO, Royal Caribbean Cruises Limited, and Chairman, FCCA. “This event gathers not only some of the cruise industry’s most prominent players, but also many of the people and products I need to know and learn about, making it possible for us all to grow together.”

This year’s show will be the 24th in the event’s history.

“We have pulled out all the stops to ensure that Trade Show exhibitors will target the influential audience,” said Michele Paige, President, FCCA. “From renewed events to retooled traffic flow and scheduling, we have thought through every detail so that Trade Show exhibitors will maximize the opportunities from having some of the most important figures from both the cruise lines and destinations’ private and public sectors.”
