For the first time ever at Seatrade, IAAPA is joining forces with SeaTrade to show both industries are synchronized when it comes to creating unparalleled immersive experiences for audiences. In this one-of-a-kind educational seminar, top industry professionals will convene to show how the practice of developing innovative productions and custom brand experiences compliment the cruise line and theme park industries.

Today's guests are looking for memorable experiences whether they are attending a theme park or sailing on a cruise ship.
