This year's conference program will explore the revenue outlook throughout the

cruises and worldwide destinations, and the staggering opportunity in the ship 
refurbishment and repair sector. 
"The opportunity for exhibitors and attendees is unprecedented," said Daniel 
Read, Portfolio Director for UBM Live, the show organizer. "Attendees can 
expect the show to offer trailblazers early entry into the burgeoning 
Asia-Pacific cruise market, one expected to surpass seven million passengers 
by 2020." 
The event begins Tuesday, Oct. 8 with the Asia Cruise Tourism Summit, a 
gathering of high-level cruise line executives and ministerial-level tourism 
board representatives. 
The Cruise Shipping Asia-Pacific conference kicks off on October 9 with the 
State of the Cruise Industry in Asia, followed by two days of concurrent 
sessions that will assess the pace and direction of growth in the world's 
newest and fastest growing cruise sector. The conference will be led by a 
panel of regional and international industry experts covering essential topics 
and providing valuable insights into the burgeoning Asia cruise market. 
Additionally, travel agents are invited to attend free comprehensive cruise 
training presented by CLIA Australia.  Those agents may also walk the show 
floor to meet various suppliers and destinations, which combined with the 
training, will offer them a 360 view of the industry and help them grow their 
respective businesses. 
New to the 2013 Event: 
New to the event in 2013 will be the presentation of the first Rama 
Rebbapragada Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Cruise Industry in 
Asia. The award will recognize a person who has played a significant role in 
developing the cruise industry in the region. 
The award will be presented by Celebrity Cruises President and CEO Michael 
Bayley, who was for many years Royal Caribbean International's Asia 
representative and who worked closely with Rebbapragada. 
The award was established in memory of Rama Rebbapragada, who was instrumental
