Cruise Ship Interiors Expo
Miami Beach Convention Center, FL
June 18-20, 2019
Uniquely focusing on the interior design, architecture and outfitting for marine vessels, the Cruise Ship Interiors Expo acts as a gathering space for major cruise lines, shipyards and outfitters. With over 200 diverse suppliers within the cruise industry anticipated to attend, this event brings together a niche audience to satisfy needs unique to this developing marine sector. Despite only being launched in 2018, the Cruise Ship Interiors Expo has built a tight community and has drawn guests far and wide who previously lacked a space to network and generate creative ideas with regards to interior design.
A huge part of interior design is integrating amenities and or attractions for guests to engage with in a space. This integration is on a new level with regards to cruise ships as vacation-goers are in the same location for a varied length of time and want to be entertained continuously throughout their stay as they travel from one port to the next. Great additions such as Sky Trail® and Sky Tykes® aerial attractions as well as Clip ‘n Climb® climbing walls allow guests of all generations to participate, challenge themselves physically on various interactive elements and have fun – no skill level required. Engineered and constructed to withstand oceanic conditions thanks to galvanized steel, the Sky Trail® family of products is built to entertain even on the deck of a cruise ship.
With our first appearance at this show, we hope to meet new faces, learn from the best in the industry and further expand our involvement onboard cruise ships through our engaging adventure products.
