CCCW at Seatrade Global in Fort Lauderdale
From ITB in Berlin, Columbus Cruise Center Wismar (CCCW) headed straight for Seatrade Global in Fort Lauderdale. Together with Columbus Cruise Center Bremerhaven (CCCB) CCCW is an exhibitor there at the world's most important cruise fair, presenting Wismar and the destination. The trade fair presents a really good opportunity to meet key people from international cruise shipping companies: Already on day one there were interesting contacts with Carnival UK, Saga Cruises, AIDA Cruises and Princess Cruises, to name but a few.
The fair also presents an excellent opportunity for CCCB to prepare the international cruise congress held by CCCB jointly with Cruise Europe in Bremerhaven in April this year. Confirmations by spokespersons and participants already today exceed all expectations. Wismar will benefit considerably from this congress since the corporation from Bremen will offer Wismar a major focus and a great forum for presenting itself on this international stage.
Uwe Beckmeyer will also be present at that congress and have a talk with participants. For the second time now Uwe Beckmeyer was invited by CCCW and CCCB to the traditional reception of Cruise Europe at Seatrade Global. Mr Beckmeyer also visited the trade fair on the first day. The photo shows Mr Beckmeyer in conversation with Veit Hürdler (Managing Director of CCCW) and Jens Skrede (Managing Director of Cruise Europe), discussing final details of the Cruise Europe Congress in Bremen/Bremerhaven.
