The future of cruising in the Arabian Gulf
For the 4th consecutive year, the Seatrade Middle East Cruise Forum will provide an important platform for cruise line executives, regional stakeholders and government authorities to gather and discuss key issues impacting the development of the Arabian Gulf’s cruise industry.
The Forum has been held in the region for a number of years and been hosted in Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Dubai and most recently Muscat in Oman.
This year, Seatrade is delighted to announce that it has joined hands with host, Qatar Tourism Authority, to hold the 2015 Seatrade Middle East Cruise Forum in Doha, Qatar.
Taking place from 7-8 December 2015, the Forum features a Summit attended by cruise line executives, regional ministers, tourism leaders, port and immigration officials.
