Calling all designers! Cruise Ship Interiors Expo Europe (CSIE) excitedly presents the brand-new Design A Nook competition. Open to all design studios, from marine experts to land-based design firms, this competition is the ideal opportunity to showcase your skills to the entire European ocean, river and expedition cruise industry on 1-2 December 2021 at CSIE.

In an industry where limited space is a key challenge, this competition will allow you to demonstrate your creativity by showcasing what your studio can do with a small space. Benchmark yourself against industry leaders by transforming a blank canvas into a stylish and original nook. Furthermore, the winning design studio will be offered a highly desirable stand at CSIE 2022. This will provide you with further opportunities to network with the European cruise market.

Showcase your skills to world-leading cruise industry experts

Designed nooks will host a variety of business meetings at Cruise Ship Interiors Expo Europe

With over 200 exhibitors supplying innovative products and services to representatives from 47 cruise lines, Cruise Ship Interiors Expo Europe is the perfect location to promote your design firms’ expertise while setting yourself apart from competitors. This niche event will host the European cruise interiors market for two action-packed days. Our visitors include cruise line and shipyard executives who will be seeking the best partnerships for their upcoming projects.

With plenty of industry-leading suppliers and cruise-line representatives in attendance, these nooks will host a variety of business meetings. This places your design right in the eyes of key decision-makers. The Design A Nook competition could be the perfect opportunity to either introduce or further establish your name within the expanding European cruise community.

Furthermore, on entry, all design studios will receive considerable exposure through our channels. This includes a listing as an official sponsor on the Sponsors & Supporters pages online and within the show guide, as well as a logo inclusion within the Sponsors & Supporters carousel on the CSIE homepage and in-show sponsor signage. Additional exposure includes an enhanced listing on the exhibitor list online, a dedicated blog piece pre- and post-show, inclusion in the dedicated Design A Nook competition email ahead of the show and more. Entrants will also receive an invitation to the CSIE reunion party, two guaranteed meetings per day with cruise line executives at the show, and finally an invitation to the CSI Awards where the winner of Design A Nook will be announced!
