Never before has the cruise and ferry industry seen a similar situation with operations being shut down worldwide and uncertainty about the beginning and extent of the upturn. But the restart will come. And when we set sail again, as the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) puts it in its update on cruise industry respond to COVID-19, our community will be an important part of the global economic and societal recovery.
So, what will the „new normal“ look like on board in a post-pandemic age? From 8 – 10 September 2021, MARINE INTERIORS Cruise & Ferry Global Expo will provide answers. With cruise lines introducing new health standards, the trade fair extends its concept by adding suppliers in the fields of health & safety as well as medical equipment to the show.
Europe's first stand-alone trade fair for interior design, equipment and technology for passenger ships celebrated a highly acclaimed debut in September 2019, with thousands of industry professionals on the exhibition floor and renowned speakers in the conference area. Powered by SMM, the event benefitted from the organisation and networking strength of the world's leading trade fair for the maritime industry. Moreover, the co-location with Seatrade Europe provided additional attention from the "who's who" of the cruise industry. Success factors which will remain in place in the future.
A further stage to show presence is SMM, which is continuing to expand its dedicated exhibition area for MARINE INTERIORS @SMM 2021. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, SMM has been postponed to 2 - 5 February 2021 and will then return to its two-year cycle to take place in even years. So if you want to make contact with the cruise industry's giants and present your company to a global audience year after year, Hamburg is the place for you.
We would love to welcome you on board in 2021!
