Build Your Brand at CruiseWorld with a Captive Audience
Travel advisors selling cruises are dedicated to providing their clients with a variety of vacation experiences—at sea and on land! If you’re looking to grow your business, CruiseWorld gives you access to more than 800 travel advisors whose clients travel the world.
Exhibitor Showcase and the STAR Program
CruiseWorld's STAR Program consists of up to 250 pre-qualified travel advisors whose participation in the event is partially subsidized by Travel Weekly. This select group receives enhanced programing, including one-on-one pre-scheduled business connections with suppliers during the Exhibitor Showcase. The goal for these travel advisors is to reinforce supplier relationships—and build new ones.
Joined by those in our STAR program are the additional hundreds of eager travel advisors who shop for the business tools they need at the one-day Exhibitor Showcase. The dynamic and interactive showcase is the ideal platform for suppliers to meet travel advisors looking for products and services to support their clients and their business needs.

We’re All About Value
CruiseWorld is all about delivering the travel advisors you’re looking to meet – at a great value. Now a hybrid event, CruiseWorld features both appointment-based and general tradeshow floor environments. Connect with pre-qualified travel advisors during pre-scheduled, one-on-one meetings, network during breakfast and lunch, meet during the Exhibitor Showcase, and share ideas during educational sessions. Our packages allow you to craft an exhibit space – and meeting space, if you choose – to support your business development needs. You decide which package helps you accomplish your goals and we’ll take care of the rest.
According to recent Phocuswright research, travel agencies booked nearly US$95 billion in travel and are more likely to book complex products such as vacation packages and cruises. According to another industry study, cruise vacationers spend considerably more ($1,700 vs $1,300), are more likely to book with a travel advisor (68%) and are planning the same level of travel on land-based vacations, cruises and resort packages in the next three years.
If you’re looking to grow your piece of this business, exhibit at CruiseWorld. Sponsorship and showcase opportunities give you access to a diverse pool of travel advisors ready to book their clients to your destination or hotel, your cruise line or resort, using your product or solution.
