Ship inspections will be offered over the weekend following CruiseWorld, Nov. 4 and 5h. Watch the CruiseWorld website for updates on the roster of ships to be announced in the coming weeks.

Returning in 2023 are the crowd-favorite Pitch Perfect segments where a panel of suppliers pitch their product to advisors’ hypothetical clients live on stage. Topics will feature group, expedition, and luxury travel as well as river cruising.

Also back is CruiseWorld’s STAR (Select Travel Advisor Recognition) Program for an elite group of program attendees. Tthose interested in applying are encouraged to do so as soon as possible. More information on the semi-hosted program and the STAR application can be found at 

Peer-to-peer training will be available on Nov. 3. These breakout sessions enable developing and established advisors to learn from one another in the areas of marketing, sales, social media, product development, professional development, supplier relationship building and more. You can watch recordings of the 12 sessions from 2023 here.

Advisor attendees will also have a chance to brainstorm together in an interactive Think Tank. Attendees will be able to share ideas about what has worked for them and ask for assistance from their peers for challenges they are facing. 

Supplier-sponsored workshops will also be offered Nov. 1 and 2. Attendees will hear from destinations, cruise lines, and other suppliers on new products and programs.

The 2023 supplier roster for the Exhibitor Showcase is growing day by day. Airlines, cruise lines, destinations, hotels and resorts, professional services, tour operators, host agency and consortia, travel insurance and more will all be well represented on the showcase floor come November.
