Clia has revealed it will run its largest ever programme of river cruise roadshows next year.

In March 2019, the cruise industry body will visit six cities over a two-week period.

The evening roadshows, which are free to Clia members, will be dedicated to the river cruise industry and offer advice on trends, river cruise experiences and sales opportunities.

Sessions will also offer agents the chance to meet with river cruise operators to learn about each line’s unique selling points and news.

From March 11, Newcastle, Liverpool, Birmingham, Bristol, Oxford and Ipswich will all host Clia roadshow events.

Andy Harmer, Clia UK & Ireland director, said: “This will be Clia’s biggest ever river cruise only roadshow.

“These events are an opportunity for our travel agents members to speak to experts within the industry.

“They also provide a platform for our cruise line members to meet agents face-to-face and update them on their products, experiences and destinations.”
