Barcelona, Spain, June 2019 – Cruise Ship Interiors Europe is Europe’s first interactive trade fair for cruise ship design, newbuild, and refurbishment. Premiering on 4-5 December 2019, the event provides a gateway for interior designers, architects, outfitters, shipyards, and interior suppliers to meet with Europe’s ocean, river, and expedition cruise line market players working on major refurbishment and newbuild projects.
Launched earlier this year, Cruise Ship Interiors Europe has made waves within the marine interiors’ community. After receiving unprecedented levels of support for the Miami event, Cruise Ship Interiors will bring the event to Europe to unite the region’s major river, expedition, and ocean cruise lines.
“I’m looking forward to Cruise Ship Interiors Europe and am pleased to be on the Advisory Board and offering my full support to this highly focused event.”– Andrea Bartoli, principle manager, outfitting, Carnival Corporation
The trade fair has received support from the industry’s major cruise lines, including MSC Cruises, Carnival Corporation, and Hurtigruten.
Taking place on 4-5 December 2019, Cruise Ship Interiors Europe already boasts a near-sold out floor plan (less than 25% of stand space remaining!). Coming together at the Fira Barcelona for the two-day expo will be industry-leading marine interior suppliers, including Bez Marine Interiors, Bolidt, Deck-Rite, Gerflor Group, Kettal, Oliver Design, Pier Marine Interiors, SMC Design, and Trimline.
Similarly to its North American equivalent, Cruise Ship Interiors Europe has caught the attention of some of the industry’s biggest and best-known names. World-renowned design studio YSA Design, who rarely exhibit at trade fairs, will be exhibiting at the event, whilst CEO Anne Mari Gullikstad shows her support as an Advisory Board member.
“YSA is really looking forward to Europe’s premier event for the marine interiors community.”– Anne Mari Gullikstad, CEO, YSA Design
Other major names who have shown their support of the event thus far include SMC Design’s director, Andy Yuill; CEO of Bez Marine Interiors, Stefan Bez; Michael Oliver, co-owner of Trimline; design manager at Crystal Cruises, Eleonora Brugnolotto; head of design at P&O Australia, Petra Ryberg; senior director of interior design and architecture at Carnival Cruise Line, Petu Kummala; and vice president of newbuilding at MSC Cruises, Trevor Young.
Cruise Ship Interiors Europe’s most recent addition to the Advisory Board, sees lead architect at MSC Cruises, Antonio Di Nenno, show his support to the event.
