For the first time, Irish travel agents are being given the opportunity to attend an event in Ireland designed to showcase the wide variety of cruise holidays available to today’s clients. Supported by 14 different cruise companies, CLIA is holding a series of travel agent roadshows taking in Cork, Galway and Dublin in June.
CLIA agent members, and non CLIA members, will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge on river, luxury, contemporary and family cruise holidays while hearing the very latest developments in the cruise sector.
Andy Harmer, CLIA Europe Vice President Operations, said: “It is the first time travel agents will have had the opportunity to meet so many different cruise lines in Ireland in one place. We are very excited to be meeting both our members and those who may not be so familiar with the work undertaken by CLIA. I am delighted by the support being given by the 14 cruise lines, which means agents will be able to broaden their knowledge and increase their expertise on a wide range of cruise holidays while being in just one location.”
The cruise companies participating in the road shows are: APT River Cruises; Avalon Waterways; Celebrity Cruises; Cruise & Maritime Voyages; Holland America Line; MSC Cruises; Norwegian Cruise Line; Oceania Cruises Princess Cruises; Seabourn; SeaDream Yacht Club; Silversea; Tauck; and Uniworld. They are being joined by CLIA Executive Partners Rocky Mountaineer and Airlynks.
The roadshows will take place in Cork at the Ambassador Hotel on Monday 27th June; Galway on Tuesday 28th June at the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa; and in Dublin on Wednesday 29th June at the Hilton Hotel. The events begin at 5.00pm, with agents being invited to a buffet dinner.
