Cruise Business Seminar 2019

Wed 12 Dec 18


0930 until 1230 -  Thursday 31st January  2019

Holiday Inn, Corstorphine Road, Edinburgh EH12 6UA


You are invited to attend a Seminar focussed on businesses who may wish to develop opportunities arising from the cruise ships which visit the Forth and the Tay each year.

In 2019 over 120 cruise ship visits will take place, involving over 17,0000 passengers and crew. Not only will cruise ship passengers be on ‘day visits’, many will be beginning or ending their cruise on the Forth or the Tay, and will require accommodation or other services. Some ships stay overnight.

Are you already a cruise friendly business, operating within 90 minutes of the ports of Leith, Newhaven, South Queensferry, Rosyth or Dundee (and even Greenock)? If you would like to know more about the opportunities, or believe you have something to offer, then this seminar is for you?

The event is organised by award winning  CruiseForth, a project that is entering its ninth year,  and will be attended by cruise excursion representatives.

Please register you interest as soon as possible, and by 24th January at the latest. NUMBERS ARE RESTRICTED AND IN 2018 WE CLOSED BOOKINGS EARLY


Register by contacting Peter Wilson, CruiseForth Project Manager, as soon as possible. Contact Peter Wilson on [email protected]


This event is free, and funded by monies provided through a Scottish Enterprise grant, that will see information about local opportunities promoted internationally.
