Cruise360 heads to Brisbane for the first time

Queensland is set to host the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest cruise industry event with Cruise360 heading to Brisvegas for the first time.

Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) Australasia has announced Cruise360 will be held at Brisbane’s Royal International Convention Centre on Thursday 7 September 2023.

The event will bring together hundreds of industry representatives from across the CLIA community, including travel agents, cruise line representatives, ports & destinations, industry suppliers and CLIA Executive Partners.

CLIA’s regional managing director Joel Katz said it would be the first time the event had been held outside Sydney.

“Queensland has become one of our region’s most popular cruise destinations and the opening of the new Brisbane International Cruise Terminal has made the city an important international cruising hub within the South Pacific region,” Katz said.

“Brisbane’s significance will only increase as it prepares to host the 2032 Olympic Games, so we’re delighted that Cruise360 Australasia will be a part of the city’s tourism evolution.”

Brisbane had previously been scheduled to host Cruise360 Australasia in 2020 ahead of the opening of the Brisbane International Cruise Terminal at Luggage Point, though the event was cancelled in the early stages of the pandemic.

Tickets to Cruise360 Australasia 2023 are available exclusively to CLIA members, with super-earlybird rates of $220 per person available up to 31 January 2023. Groups of 10 or more will save an additional 10 per cent.
