What are the Seatrade Cruise Awards and who do they recognise?
These awards are a real showcase for all the different projects that have had a positive impact upon the development of the cruise industry. As well as offering recognition for industry categories, they also see awards given for personality & community, so there is a very tangible ‘inclusive’ quality to them.
When do the awards take place?
Tomorrow, actually! The 2019 Seatrade Cruise Awards ceremony is due to unfold at the CLIA Germany Gala Dinner during Seatrade Europe in Hamburg, Germany.
Who are Seatrade Cruise?
Seatrade Cruise has been bringing the cruise community together for almost 50 years, with their hugely popular events being a fixture on the cruise calendar for anybody who is anybody in the cruise industry. In fact, many describe Seatrade Cruise as being the birthplace of some of the most influential online media channels to the cruise and commercial maritime markets.
Are the awards a big fixture in the maritime industry calendar?
Simply put, yes they are. By invitation only, the Seatrade Awards ceremony is actually the most prestigious event in cruise and it is judged by some of the most experienced and knowledgeable leaders the cruise industry has to offer. In fact this year our very own Co-Founder and CEO, Ian Richardson, will be on the judge’s panel so it’s a very exciting week for us!
Why are ICE Technology Services a principle sponsor this year?
We have been providing Managed Services and IT consultancy for more than 20 years and we have really come to focus more and more on the cruise industry. To that end, the opportunity to team up with Seatrade Cruise and sponsor an awards ceremony that not only offers recognition in industry categories but also celebrates community and personality awards, was a huge one that we did not want to pass up. Our very own CEO and Co-Founder, Ian Richardson, is also one of the judges this year and we are genuinely thrilled to be in a position to lend our support to such a well-loved and prestigious event.
