Asian MICE Cruise Conference | Keynote (Part 2)

As one of the pioneeting companies of Asian leisure cruising, Genting Cruises has also been the first to recognise the business potential of MICE cruises. Its latest luxury cruise line, Dream Cruises, has a fleet of ships that are built with corporate usage in mind. How has this bold vision changed the company’s performance? How is it gearing up to tackle the increasing competition for MICE cruises? 

 
Speaker: Kent Zhu, President, Genting Cruise Lines
 
 

0935 - 1030hrs | Venue: World Ballroom A&B, Level 23, BCC
Asian MICE Cruise Conference | MICE Onboard 1: Fun and Frivolous?

Cruise ships today promise a mind-boggling array of fun activities and entertainment all under one roof. While these are perfect lures for a corporate incentive programme, how will fun-filled cruise ships sit with planners of solemn corporate meetings and conferences which are also a segment cruise companies are keen to attract? Can cruise ships truly be a serious contender for a wide range of solemn corporate gatherings?

Asian MICE Cruise Conference | MICE Onboard 3: Leaving Minimal Trail Behind

Cruise companies have been blamed for massive air and marine pollution left behind by their giant cruise ships. But more cruise companies are taking big steps to correct that reputation, plus deploy stricter waste management onboard. As more corporates demand suppliers and business partners to be aligned with their own CSR beliefs, will adopting more environmentally-friendly procedures help cruise companies get the booker’s nod?
