Hundreds of Cruise Ship Interiors Design Expo Europe’s exhibitors, speakers and VIPs filled KETTAL’s Barcelona showrooms for CSIE’s official launch party. The exclusive event was the perfect opportunity for CSIE delegates to start their expo with a bang. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Cruise Ship Interiors Expo without plenty of networking opportunities and last night’s launch party was the first of many.

KETTAL’s stunning showroom displayed their distinct style, creating the perfect backdrop for the inaugural launch party for Europe’s first ever expo dedicated solely to cruise ship interiors. Exhibitors who were looking to be inspired by trending colour palettes and shapes needed to look no further than the furniture and walls of the chic showroom.

The outfitters, designers and suppliers who chose to exhibit at CSIE were in high spirits ahead of what promised to be two very successful days on the show floor. The delicious food and flowing drinks provided by KETTAL certainly helped set the positive mood. As we all know, all the best parties have good music and, in this instance, a live DJ provided the backdrop to the bustling party. Among our exhibitors were industry legends such as Adam D. Tihany, Principle and Founder of Tihany Design, Arno Ahrens, Sales Director Cruise for Steripower GmbH & Co.KG Bavaria, and Stefan Bez, CEO of Bez Marine Interiors. Many exhibitors attended, including Lenco International, Axminster Carpets, Bassols, Forbo Flooring, Bolidt, Brand Milano projects, Dyson, F.Ball, Futura Leather, Sunbury Design, MagicMan, Studio Bigi Carità and Albani Contract.

The first day of Cruise Ship Interiors Design Expo Europe is now underway and exhibitors and visitors can all look forward to Happy Hour, at the end of Day One for further networking and raising a glass to a successful first day!
