After seven years of meeting in Sydney, Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) confirmed last week that next year’s event will be in Brisbane where attendees will be able to celebrate Queensland’s growing importance to the cruise sector.

SORRY, WHY BRISBANE?

In his closing remarks, CLIA Australasia’s Managing Director, Joel Katz, admitted that the cruise spotlight if now “firmly on Brisbane” with its growing passenger numbers and soon-to-open terminal.

Katz believes that by late 2020 the city will have cemented its position as “a leading port in the South Pacific region” and said that it’s the “perfect time” for the destination to host the annual conference.

“Cruise tourism supports thousands of jobs in Queensland and the investment Brisbane is making in new infrastructure will help ensure it enjoys even greater economic benefit well into the future.”
