Cruise Ship Interiors Design Expo Americas
The show will take place at the Miami Beach Convention Center on 6-7 June

Cruise Ship Interiors Design Expo Americas (CSI Americas) will return to Miami, USA, with an extensive conference and workshop programme in June 2023. 

The show, which will take place at the Miami Beach Convention Center on 6-7 June, will bring together key stakeholders in the marine interiors industry for two days of networking, business and education.  

The 2023 Conference & Workshop Program will be hosted in partnership with hospitality industry network NEWH and take place around the show floor, covering various topics including trends, drydocks, newbuilds, refits and sustainability. Some of the biggest names in cruise design will take to the stage to share their expertise through debates, interactive workshops, Q&A panels and other curated sessions. 

The conference agenda on day two will feature sessions such as ‘The state of the industry’ and ‘Marine Design 101: in conversation with cruise interior design masters’. 

Some of the individuals already confirmed for the expert speaker panel, including Sascha Lang, vice president of architectural design – newbuild and renovation at Royal Caribbean Group; Alison Clixby, director of hotel design and projects at Carnival UK; July Grill, senior director of architecture and next-gen newbuilds at Norwegian Cruise Line; Greg Walton, founding partner at Studio DADO; and many others. 

For the first time, CSI Americas will be co-located with the new Hotel & Resort Design South (HRDS) – Miami’s inaugural show for those involved in designing luxury hotels, resorts and private island destinations. CSI and HRDS will host a joint session – titled ‘A tale of design – creating an emotional connection’ – in the HRDS lounge. 

In addition to this, there will be a host of networking opportunities, such as speed networking sessions, a Happy Hour drinks reception, a Procurement Brunch, and the CSI After Hours party, which will take place in a secret Miami location.
