MIRAMAR, FL – Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) is moving full steam ahead in reestablishing its live events that gather Platinum Members with high-level executives from FCCA Member Lines. After already scheduling meetings and networking functions for Platinum Members at Seatrade Cruise Global and providing complimentary registrations for Platinum Members at the FCCA Cruise Conference, the itinerary is now set for the annual FCCA PAMAC Cruise Summit.
Business and relationship development will hit high gear on the high seas from December 10-13 on board Royal Caribbean International’s Freedom of the Seas, with the event ready to launch mutual benefits through a series of meetings to discuss everything from industry trends and region-wide affairs to product promotion and member-specific topics, as well as unique networking opportunities to further foster bilateral partnerships.
“FCCA Platinum Membership events like the PAMAC Cruise Summit are essential to both the members and cruise line representatives,” said Micky Arison, Chairman, Carnival Corporation & plc and the FCCA. “They join some of the industry’s most influential decision makers with significant stakeholders from the Caribbean and Latin America, which leads to positive developments for all parties.”
“We cannot be prouder to again offer our live events to develop mutual growth for Platinum Members and Member Line executives,” said Michele Paige, President, FCCA. “Bringing together these two vital entities in a comfortable setting lets them better understand not only the latest happenings and offerings, but also each other, which has proven to be one of the best ways to synergistically grow and improve.”
The Summit’s itinerary will spark this synergy through features ranging from sit-down dinners to one-on-one meetings between Platinum Members and cruise executives of their choice. Additionally, the long-standing PAMAC Meeting will bring together the entire group to discuss operations and developments, with Platinum Members able to present any point to a panel of Member Line executives leading the meeting.
Networking opportunities will also abound during evening receptions, and tours will explore not only Nassau and Perfect Day at Coco Cay, but also delve into opportunities to build stronger relationships, while helping the group better understand the evolving cruise product and destination experience – including health and safety protocols – from a passenger’s perspective.
This event is one of many that the FCCA coordinates for its Platinum Members and Member Lines to stay at the forefront of information about both the industry and members’ companies and destinations, along with developing bilateral relationships that lead to success for all. Platinum Members and Member Line executives will next come together at FCCA’s private functions during Seatrade Cruise Global, and Platinum Members receive a complimentary registration for the FCCA Cruise Conference, taking place in Panama City, Panama from October 18-21. Plans are also currently in the works for the land-based annual PAMAC Conference.
