"Congratulations on this exclusive acknowledgement and we look forward to seeing what remarkable things are planned for future events."
"We are honored that BizBash recognizes Seatrade Cruise Global as one of South Florida’s most important annual B2B shows," said Robyn Duda, portfolio director, Seatrade Cruise Global. "Besides celebrating Miami, considered the birthplace of the modern cruise industry, Seatrade also brings an estimated $5 million to the local economy."
The next edition of Seatrade Cruise Global is slated for March 14-17, 2016. Due to renovations at the Miami Beach Convention Center, its longtime venue, the show is moving to the Broward County Convention Center at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale for three years, 2016 through 2018.
