Cruise Ship Interiors Expo America (CSI) and co-located Cruise Ship Hospitality Expo America (CSH) return to Miami, Florida on 28 – 29 October, 2021. The award-nominated event has spent the past year providing a platform and a voice for the cruise ship interiors community. Launching the instant hit webinar series Cruise Conversations, CSI helped the down-but-not-out cruise interiors industry share their stories and collaborate on finding a way forward. Now CSI is thrilled to open the doors of the Miami Beach Convention Center once again, welcoming cruise interiors designers, architects, outfitters, shipyards and suppliers. CEO Toby Walters says, ‘We are delighted to bring the industry back together again’, as the community’s key players will meet for two days of networking, much-missed face-to-face meetings and the unparalleled design-focused Cruise Conversations conference.
CSI and CSH were originally scheduled to return 8 – 9 June 2021. However, event organisers Elite Exhibitions have made the difficult but necessary decision to move CSI and CSH to the new dates of 28 – 29 October 2021. Although buoyed by the global news of successful vaccination programmes and other roadmaps to reopening world travel, the organisers felt that the new dates allowed them to ensure the outstanding show that exhibitors and visitors have come to expect.
This year CSI’s 300-plus exhibitors will be located under one roof, creating a dynamic show floor like no other. After nearly a year of online-only meetings, visitors will be able to walk around the world of cruise ship interiors, enjoying the innovation, inspiration, and essential conversation. Over at the Cruise Conversations conference stage industry leaders will be discussing the key topics of today and the future, including the role that interior design will play in the reinvigoration of the cruise industry.
Attendees will enjoy a strong programme of networking events scheduled across both days of the two-day exhibition. Among the anticipated events is the Reunion Party, a celebration of the cruise ship interiors community and a reuniting of the supply chain. VIPs, visitors and exhibitors alike will be in attendance at the on-site Cruise Ship Interiors Awards. In its second year, the popular awards ceremony will celebrate the innovation, aesthetic and design history of cruise ship interiors.
