Seatrade Cruise global brand and event director Chiara Giorgi said: “Cruise operations are gradually restarting in this region with some markets returning strongly to near pre-pandemic levels. With several cruise lines already operating in the region and new players on the horizon, Seatrade is excited to be back in Hong Kong to continue supporting the recovery of the Asian cruise market.”

The event’s conference agenda will feature panels, workshops and presentations addressing regional trends, threats and opportunities, with each session led by a panel of cruise leaders and experts. 


Hong Kong Tourism Board’s general manager for MICE and cruise, Kenneth Wong, added: “The choice of Hong Kong as the venue for Asia’s first and largest post-pandemic trade event for the cruise industry not only highlights Hong Kong’s significant role as Asia’s cruise hub, but also further strengthens Hong Kong’s position in the global cruise industry. The event will bring together the best and brightest elites of the cruise industry from around the world to experience at first hand Hong Kong’s new travelling experience. This will help showcase to the world Hong Kong’s normalcy."
