Cruise Line Presidents and CEOs to Lead New Regional State of the Industry Sessions at Cruise Shipping Miami

-- Panels to discuss trends, status of the global industry's three largest markets

MIAMI, Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In addition to Cruise Shipping Miami's highly anticipated "State of the Global Cruise Industry" led by the heads of the four largest cruise corporations, three additional new panels of cruise line chief executives will analyze critical issues and trends in the world's largest cruise markets — the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australasia.

"The regional discussions will look at how each market might develop in the coming years, trends in consumer sourcing and the impact of new port developments and infrastructure."

Tuesday afternoon the "State of the Industry: The Americas" will feature Adam Goldstein, president and CEO of Royal Caribbean International; Rick Sasso, chief executive officer of MSC Cruises USA; and Jan Swartz, president of Princess Cruises.

Wednesday morning the "State of the Industry: Asia & Australasia" session will empanel Adam Goldstein, president and CEO of Royal Caribbean International; Tammy Marshall, senior vice president of Carnival Australia; and Jan Swartz, president of Princess Cruises.

Wednesday afternoon's panel will discuss the "State of the Industry: Europe," featuring Michael Bayley, president and CEO of Celebrity Cruises; David Dingle, chief executive officer of Carnival UK; Pierfrancesco Vago, executive chairman of MSC Cruises and chairman of CLIA Europe; and Richard Vogel, chief executive officer of TUI Cruises.

Organizers expect to announce additional top-level regional panelists soon.

The "State of the Global Cruise Industry" will kick off the sessions Tuesday morning, March 11. Moderated by the BBC America's Katty Kay, it will feature Arnold Donald, president and CEO of Carnival Corporation & plc; Richard Fain, chairman of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.; Kevin Sheehan, CEO and president of Norwegian Cruise Line; and Pierfrancesco Vago, executive chairman of MSC Cruises.

Cruise Shipping Miami, scheduled March 10-13, 2014, at the Miami Beach Convention Center, is the global flagship of UBM's Cruise Events Portfolio, which includes the annual Cruise Shipping Asia-Pacific and the biennial Seatrade Med Cruise Convention.
