2014 CDU Conference: Beyond gateway ports - Navigating new destinations (Perth)

The 18th Annual 2014 Cruise Down Under Conference “Beyond gateway ports – Navigating new destinations” sponsored by Tourism Western Australia, Fremantle Ports, City of Fremantle and Experience Perth was held from 3-5 September in Perth.

The list of keynote speakers secured for our conference was again outstanding. We welcomed Crystal Morgan from Princess Cruises, Colleen Crisp from Fred Olsen Line and Steven Young, from Carnival UK. These reputable speakers addressed the current industry trends and discussed the future developments beyond the traditional gateway ports. A range of local experts complemented the program in panel and workshop sessions. 

The key industry conference offered both members and non members the opportunity to further their knowledge of the industry and gain a first-hand understanding of this continuously expanding market. It also provided the opportunity to network with cruise industry colleagues and extend contacts.
