The FRCC celebrates its 10th anniversary at Seatrade Cruise Global, the world cruise industry show !

Tuesday, 11 April 2017

As every year, the French Riviera Cruise Club participated in Seatrade Cruise Global, the major international cruise industry trade show, which was held from 14th to 16th March 2017 at Fort Lauderdale in the USA.

The promotion of the cruise ports of Cannes, Nice, Villefranche-sur-Mer and Antibes took place at the ‘French Riviera’ stand, located in the French Pavilion, which was reinforced this year with the participation of the French Atlantic ports.

Two press conferences were held at the French Pavilion, with a sparkling atmosphere centred on champagne.

The Bay of Villefranche-sur-Mer was honoured at the opening of the ‘State of the Industry’ conference, which presented a status report on the international cruise industry market.

10 Years of the FRCC

Started in 2007, the French Riviera Cruise Club is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.

Today it has 250 members, including tourist services providers, maritime agents, hotel managers, restauranteurs, business owners, transport companies etc.

During the show, the FRCC gave the gift of a mosaic* representing a symbolic landscape of our destination to the 8 representatives of cruise lines who attended meetings at the ‘French Riviera Ports; stand.

 Numerous events are being organised during 2017 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the FRCC.

* The mosaic was produced by the GALICE Association of Nice.
