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:
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!
