Intercruises sponsored this year’s Cruise Canada New England Symposium, which was held in Manhattan and gathered a number of leading industry executives to discuss the challenges and opportunities in the region. Attending from Intercruises Margaret Zacharis, VP NY Operations and Robert Blythman, Senior Director, Shore Excursions North America.

A collaborative brainstorming session took place at the event in which attendees were assigned to tables to discuss key industry topics. Each table had pre-selected team leader (of which Robert Blythman was one) along with a pre-determined scribe (of which Margaret Zacharis was one) to assist/organize discussions and prepare the final presentation. The three topics discussed were:

  • Consumer demand ( how to build it)
  • Tourism/Revenue Development ( how to increase/optimize it)
  • Promotion/Guest Satisfaction/Region Building (how to enhance it)
