International Cruise Summit 2013

The 2013 INTERNATIONAL CRUISE SUMMIT will once more bring together in Madrid the combined talents of the industry and its major players in a business that continues to go from strength to strength.

 Despite the challenges of the current economic environment, cruising  is the sector in global  tourism that  continues to have the greatest potential for growth. Europe is still a  growing market, not only as a source but also as a worldwide destination. Cruise companies continue take a stake in Europe in general and  Spain in particular but  we need to widen our knowledge of the sector,  its strategy, its trends, its development and its logistics. In the 2013  INTERNATIONAL CRUISE  SUMMIT  the present and future of an industry, which last year hosted more than 20 million passengers worldwide, will be discussed.
