Agent registration opens for Clia events in Manchester, Norwich and Malaga
Agent registration has opened for three Clia UK and Ireland events for this autumn: two Luxury and River Cruise Showcases in Manchester and Norwich in September, and its inaugural European Luxury Cruise Showcase in Malaga in October.
Andy Harmer, Clia senior vice-president membership and director UK & Ireland, said: “We are delighted to announce that registration is open for agents for these three events.”
At the Luxury and River Cruise Showcases in Manchester and Norwich, on September 13 and 20 respectively, around 100 agent places are available at each location.
The events are an opportunity to meet the Clia team and cruise lines representing these sectors of the cruise industry, and to learn about the latest innovations in the luxury and river cruise sectors.
Following the two UK-based events, the association is hosting its inaugural European Luxury Cruise Showcase in Malaga on October 15 and 16.
Harmer said: “This two-day event will include ship visits onboard Silversea’s Silver Whisper and Seabourn’s Ovation, events courtesy of Visit Costa Del Sol and their partners and keynote conference sessions and a cruise trade fair.
“This unique event has limited availability, due to maximum ship visit numbers, so please book early to guarantee your place. This event is open for bookings from Clia member travel agents only.”
