Unique event for the cruise industry in Europe and globally to meet high-level cruise decision-makers.

Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), the leading voice for the global cruise industry, announces a strong line up of Government Ministers, cruise line global CEOs, and international institution representatives confirmed to attend Cruise Week Europe in Genoa, 11-14 March.

The cruise industry will be turning out in force with many of the world’s leading cruise line CEOs confirmed to attend the event, which is being organized this year in partnership with the Liguria Region, Genoa City Council, Genoa Ports, and the Genoa Chamber of Commerce.

During CLIA’s European Summit, cruise line leaders will convene with governments and key stakeholders. A host of high-profile attendees scheduled to attend include: Daniela Santanchè, Minister of Tourism, Italy; Nello Musumeci, Minister of Civil Protection and Sea Policies, Italy (invited); Maurizio Leo, Deputy Minister of Economy and Finance, Italy; and Edoardo Rixi, Deputy Minister of Infrastructure and Transport, Italy; Marina Hadjimanolis, Shipping Deputy Minister to the President of Cyprus; Olga Kefalogianni, Tourism Minister, Greece (invited); Myron Flouris, Secretary General for Tourism Policy and Development, Greece; and Rosana Morillo, Secretary of State for Tourism, Spain (invited); Einar Vik Aarset, Director General, Norwegian Coastal Administration; Heino Nau, DG MARE coordinator on the blue economy; István Ujhelyi MEP, Vice-Chair, TRAN Committee of the European Parliament.

CLIA’s annual European Summit, which follows successful Summits in Genoa and Paris, is the moment when the cruise community and its stakeholders – shipyards, port authorities and terminals, NGOs, and international organisations – come together to discuss key policy priorities, industry trends, and common challenges and ambitions. The Summit will feature CEO panel sessions on how to move beyond aspiration to implement net zero emissions targets and the importance of structuring tourism development in destinations, as well as sessions on marine life protection, sustainable tourism practices, workforce diversity and investment in skills.

CLIA Cruise Week features the first-of-its-kind Innovation Expo, a new forum where more than 100 exhibitors will showcase solutions and products from across Europe. With a packed programme of showcases and industry talks on sustainable supply-chain and innovation in the cruise ecosystem, a sold-out exhibition floor, and high registration numbers, this will be an event not to miss.

The lead sponsors for Cruise Week Europe 2024 are RINA (Founding Leader) and Lloyd’s Register (Premier Sponsor) and Fincantieri (Premier Sponsor).
