Clia event is fastest-selling conference to date

The 11th Clia Cruise Conference in Southampton next year is the fastest-selling conference to date, director Andy Harmer confirmed.

More than 600 tickets went on sale on September 29 for travel agents and cruise operators, and they have almost sold out.

Harmer said: “We sold almost 80% of tickets in the first week; it’s selling almost as fast as Bros at the O2 or Glastonbury.

“It is our 11th year of doing the event so people now know to put it in their calendar. Last year it sold out in a couple of months.

“The conference brings together the whole cruise community. This is why it has grown so much as it shows how everyone – agents, cruise lines, operators and consortia – come together as an industry to support cruise and get people to choose it as their favoured holiday.”

Up to 700 people will attend the conference in Southampton on May 24-26, which will feature conference sessions, a trade fair, gala dinner and ship visits. Travel Weekly is the media partner.
