Join the Cruise Industry’s Team with FCCA Membership

PEMBROKE PINES, Fla., March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) is your way onto a winning team—the cruise industry. FCCA membership cultivates close relationships with the team’s players, coaches and management—Member Line CEOs, presidents and executives deciding what products are sold onboard and where ships call—while letting you showcase your talents and discuss what you offer over a friendly dinner, private one-on-one meeting, cocktail reception or even Caribbean cruise.

“Joining the FCCA gives you direct contact with some of the most influential decision makers in the cruise industry,” says Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line CEO and FCCA chairman.

FCCA membership gets you in and on the minds of these decision makers through two different levels. Associate Members become partners of the FCCA and cruise industry, while gaining benefits like discounts and savings on advertising and event registration fees; collateral support; access to cruise executive meetings and the most up-to-date industry research and trends; and more.

But the real prize is through Platinum Membership, which puts you on a first-name basis with the executives, presidents and CEOs. Besides granting special privileges and complimentary registrations at FCCA events like the FCCA Conference & Trade Show, the Caribbean’s largest cruise conference, Platinum Members attend numerous private events that foster relationship building.

These events bring the Platinum Members and decision makers together in casual, engaging settings for a healthy mix of business and pleasure that helps form significant relationships. Members experience this balance while cementing deals at closing parties or getting an inside look at industry projects on unforgettable tours.

“FCCA events always give me an opportunity to meet valuable industry stakeholders,” shares Adam Goldstein, Royal Caribbean International president and CEO. “These are the people who have ideas and projects I want, and need, to know about.”

If you want to bring cruise lines to your destination; get your product onboard ships; target the audience doing the above at FCCA events; or collaborate to find a specific opportunity for you, the FCCA is your source.

As Micky Arison—Carnival Corp. and past-FCCA chairman—tells, “The FCCA opens the door to the cruise industry and puts you in the middle of the action.”

Go for the win. Become an FCCA member.
