Intercruises Shoreside & Port Services, an experienced global business offering first class ground handling and port agency services to the ocean and river cruise industry, is supporting and involved in the conference programme for the International Cruise Summit in Madrid, taking place in October 2012. The annual summit brings together leading cruise industry experts to discuss Spain´s position within the global cruise market.
 
“Intercruises operates across all continents, but our roots remain in Spain, where the business began in Barcelona almost ten years ago. We are delighted to support the International Cruise Summit in Madrid and aid the development of the Spanish cruise industry.”  Said Mark Robinson, Managing Director, Intercruises Shoreside & Port Services.
 
Key industry issues to be addressed include cruise itineraries, pricing and profitability. Also featuring at this year´s event are discussions on emergency procedures and preventative measures that cruise lines and associates can take to enhance security. Industry professionals confirmed as part of the conference programme include Robert Ashdown, Technical Director of the European Cruise Council; Belén Wangüemert, Managing Director of Royal Caribbean Spain; Manuel Butler Halter, General Director TurEspaña and Mark Robinson, Intercruises Managing Director.
 
“This event brings together cruise experts to discuss challenges of the Spanish and global cruise industries, from establishing emerging markets, to upholding safety standards – a subject of great importance to Intercruises, shown through the ongoing development of our Health & Safety and emergency response procedures.” Said Mark Robinson, Managing Director, Intercruises Shoreside & Port Services.
 
The first International Cruise Summit took place in 2011, gathering cruise line, tour operator, port and other cruise industry representatives from across the globe to examine industry trends. The 2011 sessions concentrated on Spain´s role in the economic impact of the international cruise industry and strengthening the profiles of Spanish ports. In 2012, the event will discuss foreign perceptions of Spain as a cruise destination and how these can be improved through promotion of the region. Returning as the main sponsor of the International Cruise Summit in 2012, Intercruises reinforces its commitment to the growth of the Spanish cruise industry.
