Portsmouth represented internationally at top cruise expo

Representatives from Portsmouth International Port’s cruise team will be packing their bags for Tenerife this September to join Cruise line operators, travel agents, and specialist journalists at an important biennial cruise expo.

Seatrade Cruise Med brings together cruise executives and destinations under one roof. It’s a chance for cruise lines to learn more about destination ports, and presents the perfect opportunity for Portsmouth International Port to highlight the benefits of including a stop at the city into an exciting cruise holiday schedule.

Harbour Master Rupert Taylor and Business Administrator Vanessa Sherry will be on the Cruise Britain stand, meeting current customers and talking to cruise operators who are yet to come calling at Portsmouth. They’ll be able to explain how a growing list of European operators have discovered that Portsmouth International Port is so much more than just a convenient place to stop from the English Channel.

The representatives from Portsmouth will have a new brochure to share with delegates. The colourful document delivers a taste of the world class attractions found close to the gangway at Portsmouth International Port, as well as information on the flexible services and facilities available a Portsmouth International Port.

The three day event starts on September 21st at the International Trade Fair and Congress Centre in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. In 2014 Seatrade Cruise Med had 3,500 participants — with more than 180 participants from all around the globe.

Rupert said: “We’ve had a great summer season so far at Portsmouth International Port, and look forward to sharing our success story with others at Seatrade Cruise Med.

“We’ll be working alongside other UK destinations on the Cruise Britain stand, and know there’s huge interest in cruising around the British coastline. With world class attractions on our doorstep and fast connections to London, we know a stop at Portsmouth can add real value to any cruise schedule.”
