Dom Rep to host cruise conference

by Jun 26, 2022Pulse

The Dominican Republic will host the 2022 Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) Cruise Conference from October 11-14. It will take place in Santo Domingo.

The only official cruise conference representing the Caribbean, Mexico as well as Central and South America, the event will feature a series of meetings, workshops and networking opportunities. About 100 high-level executives from FCCA Member Lines are expected, and they represent more than 90 per cent of global ocean cruising capacity. The event will also allow the Dominican Republic to showcase its potential for increased benefits from cruise tourism and help the destination fulfil targeted objectives.

All conference participants will have access to workshops led by cruise executives and successful stakeholders, including ones focused on tour operators and increasing local employment and sourcing opportunities.

Participants will also have opportunities to interact with the cruise executives during a series of meetings — including one-on-one talks — and networking functions throughout the event, which will be celebrating FCCA’s 50th anniversary.

In addition, the Dominican Republic will showcase some of the best to see, eat and hear in the destination for cruise guests, along with highlighting its opportunities for growth.

Before, during and after the event, FCCA will work with the Dominican Republic toward its goals of developing a new cruise terminal in Samana and increasing demand for Sans Souci Terminal in Santo Domingo. FCCA is also partnering with the Dominican Republic on initiatives focused on cruise lines hiring citizens, cruise ships sourcing local goods, and increasing the already high percentage of cruisers that return as overnight guests.
