The UK as a Global Centre of Excellence for Cruise
September 13 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
London International Shipping Week 2023 will see the UK’s cruise refit and repair supply chain come together with cruise lines and government partners to establish plans for a Global Centre of Excellence for Cruise in the UK.
This roundtable event will highlight the existing UK offer to cruise lines, with particular focus on key regions, and agree a vision for the UK as a Global Centre of Excellence for Cruise. Partners will seek to agree an action plan for future investment and initiatives to enhance the competitiveness of the UK for this growing segment of the shipping and maritime sectors.
The event is sponsored and facilitated by Harland & Wolff. The company’s Belfast shipyard is designed to expertly handle the world’s largest cruise ships within its drydock and the city is also home to the leading interior outfitting contractors for major cruise ship conversions. With direct access to the Irish Sea as well as two international airports, Harland & Wolff (Belfast) offers immediate access for a multitude of cruise clients.
