A great success for Cruise Saint-Lawrence
Representatives of the nine international cruise ports of call along the Saint Lawrence and their government partners received international recognition and honours at Seatrade Europe which was held from 15-17 September in Hamburg, Germany.
Cruise the Saint Lawrence, which has been commissioned to promote Québec’s ports of call in the international marketplace, was chosen as one of three finalists in the Cruise Destination of the Year category for the quality of the group’s marketing strategy and the magnitude of investments—some C$156 million—earmarked to promote the Saint Lawrence ports of call and support the group’s sustainable development program.
The Seatrade Insider Cruise Awards gala provides an opportunity for organizers to showcase and reward the efforts of cruise industry stakeholders.
The members of the judging panel, which comprised 14 cruise industry specialists from Europe and the Americas, selected three finalists from among the many contenders. The grand prize category winner was Cruise Baltic. Seeking to underscore the excellent work carried out during the past year by Cruise the Saint Lawrence Association (CSLA), organizers presented Priscilla Nemey, President of CSLA, with an official plaque during a ceremony which took place at Hamburg’s Schmidt Tivoli Theatre.
As a result of this honour, Cruise the Saint Lawrence enjoyed significant exposure within industry circles as well as with trade media specialists.
