Cruise + Ferry Sails Home to London
Cruise + Ferry, the only specialist event dedicated to the technical and operations side of the cruise, ferry and fast ferry industries, takes place on the 24th to 26th of this month at ExCel London.
The show has been revamped for 2007, giving visitors even more ways to benefit. In consultation with the industry, the organisers have designed a comprehensive and flexible visitor programme providing opportunities to network, do business and update knowledge. Giants of the industry are represented in the line-up of conference speakers, which includes former P&O Group chairman Lord Sterling as well as UK Minister of State for Transport, Dr Stephen Ladyman MP, who will make the keynote opening address.
Support has been bolstered by the organiser joining forces with industry partners to offer a multiple choice conference programme covering ship design, interiors, hotel management, ports and destinations, fire and evacuation, bunkers, and medicine, catering for a wider range of professional disciplines than ever before.
Exhibition attractions include national pavilions for Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy and Sweden as well as a new interiors zone which will include one of the first participants at Cruise + Ferry from China. The newly formed Botnia Gulf Ports group of six ports in Finland and Sweden is promoting a 'Gateway to Lapland' as a cruise destination by hosting a reception.
Cruise + Ferry will also launch a string of new products and services. The Mettle Group, a consortium of seven marine technology specialists supported by the European Commission, will demonstrate the sea routing system 'Wings', which integrates weather data with ship characteristics to optimise passenger comfort and fuel consumption.
Conference themes include a RINA organised session on the design and operation of passenger ships, another on fire an evacuation from passenger ships, the world of passenger ship interiors, maritime hotel and leisure management, plus bunkers and the environment.
