The Travel Show gives us an eminent platform in which to engage potential clients.
Hauppauge, NY (PRWEB) March 02, 2011
For the third consecutive year at the New York Times Travel Show, the partnership of Royal Caribbean International and Direct Line Cruises proved to be a successful combination. The show, which was held this past weekend at the Javits Convention Center in Manhattan, was a helpful venue for travelers to begin their cruise vacation planning. Consumers that visited the booth were able to inquire about Royal Caribbean ships and itineraries with the help of the experienced cruise consultants of Direct Line Cruises.
“We were pleased not only by the continuous stream of visitors to our booth, but by the amount of serious inquiries and actual bookings made over the two day period”, said Greg Coiro, CEO of Direct Line Cruises. “The Travel Show gives us an eminent platform in which to engage potential clients.”
The over 500 exhibitors this year included a strong showing of those representing the cruising sector. In addition, insight from cruise industry experts was shared at various travel seminars. A team of cruise line executives exchanged thoughts on a panel entitled “Discover Cruising: What Will Cruise Ships Have to Offer in 2011 and Beyond.” In a more humorous, yet still informative presentation given by Royal Caribbean and Direct Line Cruises, t-shirts were thrown into the audience depicting various European cruise ports-of-call.
Many industry insiders consider the New York Times Travel Show to be the most important trade and consumer show of the year.
