NEW YORK, Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Drawing on the success of the inaugural award at last year's Cruise Shipping Asia-Pacific event, UBM, organizers of the show, are now accepting nominations for the second annual Rama Rebbapragada Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Cruise Industry in Asia.
This award will honor an individual who has made a particularly noteworthy contribution to the development of the cruise industry in Asia, distinguishing his or herself through dedication to, and passion for, the industry within the Pan-Asia region.
The award's namesake, Rama Rebbapragada, embodied this dedication. During his quarter-century-long career with Royal Caribbean International, Rebbapragada created awareness of the potential of the Asia-Pacific cruise market to the international cruise community, while being a true friend to all who knew him all over the world.
The recipient will be chosen by a select group of industry leaders, and will be presented during Cruise Shipping Asia-Pacific by Dr. Zinan Liu, Vice President, China and Asia, Royal Caribbean Cruises Limited, who was a friend and colleague of Rebbapragada's for many years. "I am so proud to have the honor of presenting this prestigious award in the name of my friend Rama, who was one of the most dedicated, loyal and passionate advocates for Royal Caribbean," said Liu. "He made a particular mark in waking the world's most populous region up to cruising. I look forward to sharing the stage with one who shares the same vision and aspirations as he did for the Asia cruise market."
Nominees will be judged on the following criteria:
- Made an outstanding contribution to the cruise industry in the Asia-Pacific region in 2014.
- Served to significantly raise the profile, visibility and credibility of the cruise industry in Asia.
- Represented the industry with dignity and professionalism

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.
