The latest trends in cruise ports in the Mediterranean and its adjoining seas were the theme of a study presented at the scientific conference “Regulation and Management in Naples Cruise Port” by PortEconomics co-director Thanos Pallis in the context of the Naples Shipping Week (NSW), was held in the Italian port city from Monday 23 June to Friday 27 June.
Thanos presented a study containing a region analysis of developments in different cruise regions of the Med, a comparative analysis of major ports in the region under examination, as well as of Italian ports. The study also included an assessment of the potential and opportunities created by these trends along with those emerging due to structural developments in the in the sector.
The study benefited by the 2013 edition of the MedCruise Statistics report and the raw passenger and cruise calls data provided by ports in the Mediterranean and its adjoining seas.
Following an invitation by the organisers, in the context of the industrial days discussions and under his capacity as MedCruise Secretary General, Thanos also presented a keynote intervention on the theme “Expanding in changing cruise times: Where should a Med port focus?”
