Thu, 06/21/2012 (All day) - Fri, 06/22/2012 (All day)

Invitation „Cruise Gateway North Sea Conference 2012“, 21-22 June 2012, Bremerhaven, Germany

We kindly invite you to attend the „Cruise Gateway North Sea Conference 2012“ which will be hosted by the Columbus Cruise Center in Bremerhaven and the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Ports, Bremen. It will take place on 21 and 22 June 2012.

The program will be built around the question of how the destination attractiveness of the North Sea region for shore excursions can be extended and how both, seaports as well as the inland (approx. up to 250 km distance from the coast) can benefit from an increased cruise-related tourism activity.

Besides inspiring discussions and presentations, there will be an exciting side program for you including an evening reception and dinner to welcome you in Bremerhaven. Moreover, you will get to enjoy generic shore excursions in Bremerhaven and Bremen as well as a cruise to Bremen before heading home again. The conference itself is free of charge, travel expenses and accommodation of course have to be paid by your own bookings.
