Brighton, July – Registration opens for Cruise Ship Interiors Design Expo Europe, returning to ExCeL London 29 – 30 November 2023. Designers, suppliers, and decision-makers from cruise lines and shipyards will take to London to hear the industry’s latest trends and challenges, update their portfolios and samples, and grow their network at this specialised exhibition and conference.

Attendees can look forward to a display of high-quality innovations and expertise from the European cruise interior industry’s leading design firms, outfitters, and suppliers at CSIE. Buyers can also expand their supplier order book with the Speed Networking program. With two sessions running per day, CSIE will match industry suppliers with relevant buyers from cruise lines, design studios, and shipyards.

The CSIE Speed Networking programme will connect relevant industry suppliers and buyers

Notable industry players RODA, Cristallux, De Wave Group, and more will be joined by 60 CSIE newcomers including Gruppo Mastrotto, a dynamic fabric and tanning supplier whose clients span automotive, marine, and aviation industries. Also new to CSIE is Marino Projects, an established contractor within the European cruise market boasting over 450 completed ship finishing and outfitting projects across 21 countries.

CSIE will unite the cruise interiors community through a variety of networking opportunities, from the Opening Party to the Happy Hour crowning day one. Throughout the show, delegates can connect with peers over a British pint at the CSIE Pub, which will also be hosting the Pitch & Pint competition. Following a popular launch drawing large crowds last year, this high-energy event gave new to CSIE suppliers the chance to pitch one headline product or service to design studio and cruise line judges. Among these were George Scammell (Director, Interior Design, Princess Cruises), James McIntyre (Procurement Director, MSC Cruises), and Peter Joehnk (Founder and Partner, JOI Design).

These CPD accredited talks will delve into the industry’s most pressing topics and trends, from project management to appealing to the next generation of cruising, wrapped up by an exploration into how disruptive technologies will shake up the cruise design sector.
