First in Europe

MARINE INTERIORS Cruise & Ferry Global Expo, 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 makes use of the organisation and networking strength of the world's leading trade fair for the maritime industry. Moreover, its co-location with Seatrade Europe adds to its reputation as ideal platform for cruise designers, cruise outfitters, cruise architects, or cruise suppliers to present their innovative solutions and to connect with the who’s who of the cruise industry.


A hotspot for meeting cruise executives

MARINE INTERIORS Cruise & Ferry Global Expo takes place in Hamburg, the world capital of maritime classification societies, and offers first-class access to the top decision-makers in the European and global cruise industry, including leaders from cruise companies that have made Germany one of Northern Europe's largest cruise markets.

From luxury cruise to expedition and river cruise – here you’ll meet CEOs, business development directors, naval architects, technical directors, buyers and other senior executives from cruise companies such as A-Rosa, AIDA Cruises, Carnival Cruise Line, Hapag Lloyd Cruises, MSC Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Lines, P&O Ferries, Royal Caribbean, Sea Cloud Cruises, TUI Cruises, or from major shipyards such as Abeking & Rasmussen, Brodosplit, Chantiers de l'Atlantique, Fincantieri, Meyer Turku, Meyer Werft, or MV Werften.

An ideal environment for presentation and networking

MARINE INTERIORS Cruise & Ferry Global Expo creates an ideal surrounding to introduce new design concepts and technical solutions as well as to build and foster high-quality business relationships. The MARINE INTERIORS Stage provides exhibitors with the opportunity to present their innovations and product highlights during 10-minutes speaker slots, and gives renowned industry experts a forum to discuss upcoming topics from cruise interior design to sustainability solutions in dedicated conference sessions.

To extend networking beyond trade-fair hours, the relaxed “wine o’clock” format invites visitors and exhibitors to exchange with new business partners and the cruise community over drinks & music. A more exclusive opportunity to connect is the shared exhibitor party of MARINE INTERIORS and Seatrade Europe, to which exhibitors receive a limited number of tickets free of charge.
