Cruise Europe: Success for Bremerhaven – Annual Congress 2017 to be hosted in Bremerhaven/Bremen

The terminal at the Columbus Cruise Center (CCCB) in BremerhavenFor several years now, Columbus Cruise Centers in Bremerhaven (CCCB) and Wismar have been affiliated in Cruise Europe, a prestigious international cruise-marketing cooperation representing about 120 North European ports.

CCCB achieves a great international success. At this year’s Cruise Europe Congress in Dublin, our organisation contended for the honour of hosting the event in 2017. After a preliminary visit and assessment of our location and program proposal, Cruise Europe decided to put Bremerhaven on the short-list.

On Wednesday, June 1, the members were shown a specially edited version of the promotion film “Bremen/Bremerhaven – Made of Stars”. Bremerhaven managed to ward off competition from two other destinations and secured the hosting of this important event in 2017. Bremerhaven’s entry was given comprehensive support by various organisations – the city council, Bremerhaven Destination Marketing, the Bremen Senator for Economy, Ports and Labour, bremenports GmbH & Co KG as well as the hotel industry and other institutions in Bremen and Bremerhaven.

Bremen and Bremerhaven can now look forward to an important few days for the international cruise industry in April 2017, with both towns welcoming cruise experts from all over the world. The congress will also include a wide range of excursions.

Since it is also a member of Cruise Europe, the event is of equal importance for activities at Columbus Cruise Center Wismar.
