The fourth Seatrade Mediterranean Cruise and Ferry Convention, which concluded on 13 September, was the most successful show in the event history.



The three-day convention attracted over 4000 participants from 52 countries, firmly establishing the show`s international status. Taking part in the exhibition were 190 local and international companies from 25 countries. Over 750 delegates registered to attend the accompanying conference program, in which 60 of the leading personalities in the cruise and ferry industries spoke on a range of topics.



Following the event, a number of participants joined the post-convention tour offered Marseille-Provence Cruise Club.



Seatrade`s Managing Director Christopher Hayman conmmented, `the Mediterranean as a cruise destination is now second only in importance to the Caribbean, and the wide range of support, the show attracted, from local supplies to major international cruise and ferry companies, is a reflection of this expansion.`



Seatrade Med is organized by UK-based Seatrade with the support of local Genoa-based Stazioni Maritime s.p.a. The fifth Seatrade Med Convention already planned for Genoa in 2004, coinciding with Genoa`s nomination as European City of Culture. Fabio Capocaccia, Charman of the Italian Organising Committee, confirmed that Seatrade presence during such an important time for Genoa would ensure the events is perfectly positioned to maintain its leading status in the Mediterranean cruise and ferry calendar.



Seatrade also confirmed that the Greek city of Pireaus, with a maritime history of over 4500 years, will be the guest port for 2004.
