All you need to know about the TAAI Cruise Convention 2022

TAAI Cruise Convention 2022 – the first-ever travel trade convention on a cruise is all set to take place onboard Royal Caribbean’s fifth largest vessel – Spectrum of the Seas between August 22-25, 2022. The theme of the TAAI Cruise Convention is ‘Namaste India’ and will be focused on encouraging international cruise operators to turn their focus on India and also provide much-needed exposure to cruise products to TAAI members.

For this convention, TAAI has been allotted 140 cabins onboard the ship but will be adding a few more due to high demand in registration numbers. The association is working closely with Singapore Airlines, Air India and IndiGo as the partner airlines for the convention. ASEGO will be supporting the convention through travel insurance for all its members which also includes cruise cover. A total of 300 delegates and 9 media experts are expected to attend this event next week onboard Spectrum of the Seas.

Day 1 of the convention will have early check-in and boarding for all the delegates with a special afternoon meet & greet with a few of the leading representatives of Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines from Singapore followed by welcome cocktails and dinner.

Day 2 will be focused on the theme ‘Ocean of opportunities’. This business session is expected to be led by two of the most recognised Indian ambassadors speaking and debating about regional tourism in the Asian region and opportunities to be explored to boost cruise tourism and outbound and inbound tourism. This is going to be an interesting session as India is still at the ‘nascent’ stage of cruise tourism and delegates will understand how their business can unlock the potential through unique business ideas and strategies.

‘The waves of change’ is the theme for Day 3, focused on India’s 7000 km long coastline and how the Indian government is bringing positive change in inbound-outbound tourism and cruise tourism.

Speaking about the convention, Jyoti Mayal, President, TAAI said, “After 2 years of virtual meetings and learnings, we wanted to provide an innovative style of the convention which not only helps our members to learn something new but also has strong future potential for growth and what better than cruise tourism! We are breaking a convention of a convention to create a convention. To ensure our members make the most of this cruise convention, all our events will have a smart casual wear theme, less inside-the-room conference style learning and more explore-on-your-own cruise time. We look forward to welcoming all our members onboard one of the most iconic cruise ships of the world and get ready to learn about cruises and cruise tourism from the experts.”
