Cruise Ship Interiors and Hospitality Expo America announce new dates

Cruise Ship Interiors Expo America (CSI) and co-located show Cruise Ship Hospitality Expo America (CSH) will now take place 10 – 11 November in order to welcome the global cruise industry.

The new show dates will mean CSI and CSH have the best chance to open their doors to European travellers, welcoming the cruise lines, shipyards and design studios to Miami, Florida, the heart of the cruise industry.

President Biden has announced that from ‘early November’ the US will open to fully vaccinated European and UK citizens, and based on multiple statements from US ambassadors it is clear that everything is pointing to November 1 as the official open date. CSI & CSH will be the first opportunity – and the only on US soil – for American and European cruise industry buyers and suppliers to meet, network and product source.

“After consulting with our Advisory Board, made up of all of the leading cruise brands, design studios and outfitters, we came to the unanimous decision that moving the show back gives us the best possible chance of allowing for an international event,” explains Toby Walters, CEO of Elite Exhibitions, organiser of CSI & CSH. “Both Elite Exhibitions and our advisory board members agree that shifting back to November 10 – 11, whilst it carries a risk, is the best decision for the benefit of the community and over 300 industry suppliers that are looking forward to being present.’

“Studio DADO fully support the decision to move the show back to November 10 – 11,” says Greg Walton, CEO, Studio DADO. “Giving us the best chance for a successful international event that is open to our friends in Europe.”

Other leading US cruise line executives and designers have expressed their support and look forward to attending the show, including Petu Kummala, Senior Director of Interior Design & Architecture, Carnival Cruise Line and Boris Ruskovsky, Senior Director Vessel Refurbishment, Norwegian Cruise Line.

The organisers of CSI & CSH continue in their mission to connect the cruise community with a dynamic program of events taking place over the two-day show. Among the standout attractions will be the big Reunion Party, the Cruise Conversations Live conference and the European Pavilion, featuring Europe’s premium suppliers. From raising a glass with much-missed friends and associates at Happy Hour to the 300+ exhibitors, including DSP Doha, Grottini and Studio DADO, CSI & CSH will be a hub for building the future of cruise design and guest experience.

All visitors already registered will have their passes automatically transferred to the new dates.
