Chile has been gradually positioning itself in the world as a cruise ship destination and port of call.
With a coast 4,300 kilometers long, 16 ports and a new domestic ocean traffic law that allows international cruises to navigate in domestic territory, this industry has taken force in our country allowing us to even be recognized in the Travvy Awards 2020 as one of South America’s best cruise destinations.
Seeking to boost Chile even more as a cruise destination and as a port of call for the main international cruise companies, we will be participating in the first version of the “Seatrade Virtual” trade show from October 5 to 8.
The event is an alternate proposal to the traditional cruise ship trade show held annually in the city of Miami and this year will bring together nearly 5,000 buyers and suppliers and 100 international journalists. Hence, the digital forum presents an opportunity for members of the cruise community to network, find partners, and learn about the industry’s latest developments. The four-day conference will also put special focus on what the cruise industry will look like in the post-COVID19 world.
In conjunction with the Ports Corporation, the Chilean commission will have the important mission of promoting Chile’s different attractions among the activity’s participants. Hence, through videos, presentations, and access to B2B meetings with the main actors of the international cruise industry, the sector’s interest in our country is expected to increase.
