Renowned hospitality designer Adam D. Tihany has been named as a keynote speaker for the inaugural Cruise Ship Interiors Expo Europe conference, which will take place in Barcelona, Spain on 4-5 December 2019.

During his presentation, the principle and founder of Tihany Design will share the interior design knowledge he has gained by working on multiple cruise ships for both large and small cruise brands, including Costa Cruises, Cunard, Holland America Line and Seabourn.

Tihany will be joined by several other high-profile executives from five other key companies in the cruise ship interior design sector. They include: Peter Joehnk, managing partner of JOI Designs, one of Europe’s largest interior design practices; Greg Walton, CEO and founding partner of Studio DADO, who has over 30 years of cruise experience; and Anne Mari Gullikstad, CEO of YSA Design, whose projects have included ships for P&O Cruises, Disney Cruise Line and Regent Seven Seas Cruises. Two British designers will also give presentations – Mike Oliver, co-owner and chairman of interior refurbishment specialist Trimline, and Andy Yuill, managing director of UK-based ferry and cruise ship design consultancy SMC Design.

Presentations will focus on the main opportunities and challenges facing interior designers, architects, outfitters, shipyards and interior suppliers working on both newbuild and refurbishment projects.

“This will be a world-class conference that nobody in the industry will want to miss,” said Toby Walters, CEO of event organiser Elite Exhibitions. “Each and every conference session is being curated to ensure that the event is comprehensive and highly topical for the ocean, river and expedition cruise markets. More speakers set to be announced over the next few weeks, so watch this space.”

Cruise Ship Interiors Expo Europe will build on the success of the inaugural Cruise Ship Interiors Expo America conference, which was attended by more than 3,500 industry professionals in Miami, Florida this June. It was the world’s first conference and exhibition that focused exclusively on interior design, architecture and outfitting in the cruise sector.
