Cruise Ship Hospitality Expo is coming to Europe!

Cruise Ship Hospitality Expo is coming to Europe

March 10, 2020 – We are very excited to announce the arrival of Cruise Ship Hospitality Expo in Europe! The demand from European suppliers, seconded by our esteemed advisory board, made it evident that we would be filling a clear need in the industry.


Cruise Ship Hospitality first launched in June 2019 as Marine Catering Expo. Since the highly successful inaugural show, we have seen the demand from the industry grow exponentially. This first led to the shift in focus to cover not only the marine catering element on the supply chain, but the entire cruise hospitality industry – and it is this strong demand that is now driving the expansion into Europe.


We were overwhelmed with the incredibly positive feedback from the debut of Cruise Ship Interiors Expo Europe (CSIE) held in Barcelona last year, and realised that one of the core strengths of the CSI brand is the differentiation between the European and US markets. The CSIE conference, in particular, mirrored the European market’s closer focus on river and expedition cruising. For this reason, and after listening to feedback from exhibitors, attendees and our advisory board, we decided to bring Cruise Ship Hospitality to Europe!


Cruise Ship Hospitality Europe (CSHE) will be co-located with Cruise Ship Interiors Expo Europe (CSIE) at the ExCeL in London, and will take place over December 2 – 3 2020.


“We are so excited to see Cruise Ship Hospitality Expo come to London in 2020. With a booming European market and so many key cruise lines and buyers here, WELBILT are looking forward to bringing the hugely successful Miami event to London”
