With more than 20 years’ worth of experience in cruise, travel and healthcare, you will also be able to read more about these key sectors. Of course, at the heart of it all is Information Technology – which some of you may know as ‘IT’ – and we’ll certainly include news on that.

Our ecosystem of companies was founded upon 3 guiding principles, or values: People, integrity and innovation. We always aim to infuse our every effort with one or all of these. The first, ‘people’, includes not only our people, but also those we work alongside each day. If you are reading this, then you can rest assured that it also includes you.

As such, we welcome your comments and feedback so do join in the conversation. You can also follow us on social media using the links below.

Seatrade Cruise Virtual: Tech & Innovation, April 2021 – a digital event not to be missed. If you have any interest in IT, cruise, or IT solutions for cruise, then add April 14th into your diary now. Today we preview what is set to be an insightful day packed full of technology discussions.

Digital Growth And IT Innovation In Cruise

The latest virtual gathering from Seatrade to tackle technology head on promises much. Future fleets will embrace smart technologies and innovations to a far greater extent than any before them. Cruise experiences will enjoy more personalisation as wearable technology and virtual assistants grow in number. We ourselves are launching ‘tzChromar’ to tackle the long-standing issue of maintaining ship times across different time zones.

This digital growth is absolutely essential in all of maritime if the industry is to enjoy success in the years ahead.

You will also hear from leading cruise and IT specialists, including Co-Founder and CEO of theICEway, Ian Richardson.

Ian Richardson, Seatrade Cruise Technology Ambassador

Ian has worked in the cruise industry for over 20 years. During that time, he has held a number of prestigious posts including chair of the CLIA Executive Partner Technology Initiative. In his Seatrade Cruise role, he is already leading discussions encompassing innovation – one of the core pillars of theICEway.

“Seatrade Cruise Virtual: Tech & Innovation will bring people in the industry together. They’ll be able to share ideas and updates of their own, as well as learning about how cruise is adopting cutting-edge technology to improve experiences for guests and crew.

A safe return to sailing is of course the immediate goal but for the longer-term, it is about evolving and solving issues both old and new”.

As he stated in a recent interview with Seatrade, “cruising will not be the same as before, it will be even better!”. For our part, we fully support that view and are doing all we can then to ensure it happens.
