The Telegraph Cruise Show

The show saw a hugely successful fourth edition across three days in January 2017, attracting 29,294 visitors.

Returning to London’s ExCeL from January 12 – 14 2018, the show will once again deliver an eager affluent audience of traditional cruise-takers and new-to-cruise travellers looking to speak and book directly with the cruise lines. Featuring fascinating talks from celebrity cruise experts on the Cruise Lines Theatre and personalised impartial advice in the Travel Genius Bar, the show is a ‘one-stop-shop’ for cruise enthusiasts and those looking into their first voyage.

The show will again coincide with The Telegraph Travel Show and the London Boat Show with one ticket allowing visitors into all three events. Co-locating with the London Boat Show sees 50,000 marine enthusiasts at ExCeL across the same weekend – 55% of whom are interested in cruises and 37% of whom are new to cruise*.

With a reach of over 800,000 potential cruisers, The Telegraph is the best-placed media channel for the cruise industry, with 25% of all UK cruise-takers and 26% of all “new-to-cruise” customers consuming Telegraph content. The show was shortlisted for Best Consumer Launch Show at the AEO Excellence Awards following its launch in 2014.
