THE ISLANDS OF TAHITI HOST
FIRST EVER SOUTH PACIFIC CRUISE FORUM
 
PAPEETE, FRENCH POLYNESIA (October 14, 2015) — The first ever South Pacific Cruise Forum will be held in the Islands of Tahiti, October 16 – 17, 2015 at the French Polynesian Assembly, the ancient site of Queen Pomare IV Tahiti’s residence.  Tahiti Tourisme is one of the key partners supporting the South Pacific Cruise Alliance to execute the Forum.
 
The South Pacific Cruise Alliance and partners is bringing together tourism ministers, NTOs, port and airport authorities, cruise companies, airlines, tour operators and tourism suppliers in the region. Two days of high-level meetings and discussions (in English) will highlight the key developments and strategies for showcasing the culture and beauty of South Pacific for the cruising public. The Forum will serve to connect and strengthen collaboration between the cruise line industry and South Pacific government representatives.
