Dublin to host the Cruise Europe Conference (CEC) in May

Dublin - Grafton Street (Stefano Fermi)This year’s Cruise Europe Conference (CEC) will be held in Dublin May 31 to June 2. It will take place at the Gibson Hotel located in Point Village which is close to the port and just four tram stops from Temple Bar.

“We have a great line-up of speakers,” says Jens Skrede, managing director CE, announcing the participation of Miguel Reyna, director commercial development Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd; Russell Daya, executive director global port operations & developments, itinerary and strategic planning Disney Cruise Line; and Clare Ward, senior commercial planning manager Fred Olsen Cruise Lines. Adding: “More speakers will be announced later”.

Nigel Lingard will once again moderate the event and there will be plenty of time to network during the social events. After the AGM on Tuesday, there will be an open-top bus tour of the city which will end up at the Guinness Storehouse for a tour, informal dinner and entertainment like only the Irish know how.

The gala evening will take place after the main conference on Wednesday. It will be held at the stunning Royal Hospital Kilmainham which has been a place of caring since 1680.
