What's on the Horizon for Seatrade Cruise Global 2023

As announced at Seatrade Cruise Med 2022, the next Seatrade Cruise Global will now take place 27- 30 March 2023 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale Broward County Convention Center.

For those who have been with us before in Fort Lauderdale, we are happy to announce that the convention center has undergone several large-scale renovations, including doubling the size of the expo hall to 350,000 square feet of continuous space, easily accommodating all exhibitors on just one floor.

Additional upgrades include modern tech integrations, innovative dining concessions, versatile pre-function space, and modern décor reflective of Fort Lauderdale’s beautiful waterfront. 

We made this change in order to prioritize the needs of our visitors and exhibitors. Learn more here!

Beware of Fraudulent Activity

We want to draw your attention to a number of emails that appear to be targeting exhibitors and attendees of Seatrade Cruise events. These emails falsely purport to offer copies of our database of attendee contact details for recent Seatrade Cruise events. Seatrade Cruise events are a part of Informa Markets and organised by Informa Princeton LLC. Informa Markets is continually working to reduce the risk to our exhibitors of fraudulent activity.

Informa Markets is not in any way associated with the sender of these emails and does not engage in the sale or trade of any of its customer lists whether exhibitor, sponsor or attendee. We are taking all available steps to investigate and minimize these spurious emails, but it is almost impossible to eliminate this risk entirely, as the emails come from numerous sources and, often, cannot be traced.

In addition, Seatrade Cruise has NOT appointed any company to call you directly and sell attendee lists. If you have any concerns regarding any emails you receive that purport to offer Informa data for sale, please contact us at [email protected].
