4 Cruise Ship Interiors Conference Speakers You Need to Follow on Instagram

Monday, July 8, 2019

For the first time ever, the entire cruise interiors industry was able to meet under one roof for peer-to-peer networking, relevant conference sessions, and innovative exhibits at the first-ever Cruise Ship Interiors Expo on June 19-20, 2019.

Taking to the stage for two days of conference sessions were speakers from the world’s most respected cruise lines and design studios. Attendees may have learned a lot, but they were left asking just one question: Who has the best Instagram account?
