The three-day event will feature a trade fair, gala dinner and a full day’s conference with speakers from the UK and global cruise industry.
It will also allow agents to network with CLIA member cruise lines, and to experience Oceania Cruises’ Marina; Princess Cruises’ Royal Princess; and Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Silhouette.

“The conference is the largest travel agent event in the UK and is an opportunity to bring the whole cruise community together. The CLIA Conference provides agents with the chance to learn about industry updates and trends, hear from key speakers sharing knowledge about their area of specialism and meet face to face with cruise line representatives and industry partners to better educate themselves and to help to grow their business.”
