Three reps from the Peru delegation at Cruise Shipping Miami 2014.

Heading to Cruise Shipping Miami 2015

Last year two of our team members attended Cruise Shipping Miami for the industry's annual trade show. I'll be attending again as media on March 17-19, along with our senior marketing manager.

This year's event is especially noteworthy for three reasons:

  • We're officially launching the Cruiseable website on Wednesday, March 18. (If you're reading this blog post, you're already here!)
  • We're releasing the Cruiseable mobile app for the iPad on Wednesday, March 18. Download it here.
  • We're hoping to add additional team members. 

I'll bring my fancy-schmancy Canon 5D and 70-200mm lens again this year — I get one heck of a workout lugging it around!

Here's my Flickr set from last year's event, and one of my favorite shots at top with three representatives of the Peru pavilion.

I was sufficiently inspired to trek to Machu Picchu and Cusco a few months later! Here's my Wanderlist on Cruiseable with some of my favorite photos:

Cusco, Peru: Culture, history & great people!

What I won't be doing

What I will be doing: A lot of interviews. Spending a lot of time on the trade show floor. Attending social events in the evening (if you know of a can't miss gathering, text me: 925-413-3870).

What I won't be doing: I don't plan to repeat what I did last year — trek to UPS to ship two 50-pound boxes of marketing collateral from tourism boards and cruise lines back to my house in California.

Get with the digital age, friends!
