Seatrade Cruise Asia event in Busan, Korea postponed

London/Busan (9 June 2015) – Seatrade Cruise Asia, due to take place in Busan, Korea June 11-12 has been postponed to a later date.

Due to increasing notifications from key stakeholders - delegates, speakers and cruise lines - of their withdrawal from the event due to the current Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) related circumstances in Korea and regional travel restrictions being imposed by other Asian countries, the planned conference programme can no longer be delivered in its published form and Seatrade is therefore advising that the event will need to be postponed to a later date.

Andrew Williams general manager Seatrade commented, ‘This decision has not been an easy one and we have looked into every possibility, however in consultation with the industry, we feel that this is the most appropriate course of action.’

UBM remains fully committed to supporting the global cruise industry and the delivery of a successful Seatrade Cruise Asia event. New dates will be announced as soon as possible.
