The 2020 DFNI Cruise Conference will take place on 15-17 June at The World Trade Center, Barcelona.

This leading industry event is focused on the dynamic world of cruise and ferry retail, bringing together experts in maritime travel retail and other key stakeholders shaping the future of sales at sea.

This year’s conference puts experiential retail at the centre of the conversation. Speakers and panellists will discuss strategy around bringing brands to life at sea and offering passengers a menu of customer-centric activities with increasingly targeted paths to purchase.

The two-day programme provides delegates with a unique opportunity to hear from thought leaders and innovators in the maritime retail channels. We will cover broad topics as diverse as luxury retail, passenger shopping behaviour, sustainability, brand synergies, supply logistics and digital innovation. Meanwhile attendees have the chance to network at key social events including a cocktail event, lunch & dinner and cruise ship tour in association with Starboard Cruise Retail who will be revealing a brand new store concept (subject to availability).

Whether you are a travel retailer operating on-board outlets, a supplier looking to improve the match of your products to evolving markets, a brand looking for tips on emerging cruise consumer tastes, or an operator seeking to grow your menu of retail options, this is an essential diary date for any stakeholder in maritime retail.
