Mazatlán, Sin.- With the confirmation of nine shipping companies and an attendance of 500 people, the Annual Conference of the Florida and Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) will take place in Mazatlán in November 2023.

The director of the Meetings Industry of the SECTUR, Alejandra Osuna Granados, explained that for the event that will take place from November 7 to 10, the presence of the shipping companies Disney, Carnival, Royal Caribbean, among others, has been confirmed.

“We expect between 400-500 attendees between executives from the shipping companies and organizers from the FCCA, some shipping companies will bring two or three people, others 10,” she said.

She announced that in August they will carry out a visit on behalf of the organization to carry out a final inspection in the places where the activities of the convention will take place.

“The work meeting will be at the Convention Center and other activities will also be carried out in different areas of Mazatlan so that they can offer them in their packages and learn what a cruise ship can enjoy during its stay in the port,” she said.
