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,

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.
