The first in a series of ACE Cruise Showcases begins in Newcastle later this month to be followed by others in Norwich, Exeter and Belfast.
The Cruise Showcases are designed to give travel agents the latest news, trends and key selling points from the cruise sector while also providing training and networking opportunities. Each of the Showcases is supported by eleven cruise lines and destination partners.
ACE director, Andy Harmer, said: ‘Feedback from our focus groups has shown that agents still value face to face time with representatives from cruise lines and destinations. These Showcases provide us with the opportunity to meet with agents while updating them on the opportunities and key selling points that exist in 2012 and beyond.’
Each of the Showcases takes place between 6-9.30pm in a city centre hotel. The first event takes place in Newcastle on February 21 followed by Norwich on February 23 and Exeter and Belfast in June.
