Goal of project: Meeting buyers in the beating heart of the cruise world
Summary of event: After a successful first edition, Phaff Export Marketing organized in March 2018 again a mission for the food and beverage sector with the focus on the cruise industry. This journey was the perfect opportunity to meet buyers in the beating heart of the cruise world, Florida!
8 companies from the Netherlands visited Miami, USA, from March 6 – 10, 2018. During these days, the participants visited several headquarters of large cruise organizations like Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, Royal Caribbean International, MCS Cruises and Carnival Cruise Corp. During the company visits and meetings with buyers, all companies were given the opportunity to keep a short pitch on their product.
