On 4 of October 2024, at a press conference in Genoa, we revealed plans for CLIA’s European Cruise Week, which will be held in Genoa from 11 to 14 March 2024. CLIA’s Chairman, Pierfrancesco Vago, was joined by our partners representing the Liguria Region, the Municipality of Genoa, the Port System Authority, and the Chamber of Commerce.
The CLIA European Cruise Week will include both the third edition of the CLIA European Summit and the inaugural CLIA Innovation EXPO, dedicated to the diverse supply chain of the sector.
A key aim of the event will be to facilitate direct contact between suppliers and cruise line companies. There will be opportunities for large and small companies to showcase their products and services, from food and beverage suppliers to design companies, from architects to developers of nautical technologies. The event will offer opportunities for business growth.

700 guests, including representatives of international and national governments and institutions, cruise leaders from around the world, and hundreds of suppliers and companies in the sector, are expected in March 2024 to make Genoa a leading maritime and cruise hub.
“It is an event of great significance for Genoa, Italy and Europe. It will bring together all the major stakeholders of the sector globally: shipowners, maritime authorities, government institutions and regulators, together with the world of suppliers to the cruise industry”, says Mr. Vago.
Hosting the event in Genoa reflects the importance of the port city as a leading cruise port for cruises and a hub for shipbuilding and maritime technologies.
