Seatrade Cruise Global is the cruise industry's premier global event. It brings together every facet of the business including cruise lines, suppliers, travel agents and partners. As the epicenter of the cruise industry, Seatrade Cruise Global features exhibitors and attendees from around the world, a multi-track conference program headlined by the industry's most knowledgeable speakers and the State Global Cruise industry keynote.

Antonio Prestigiacomo, LR Client Relationship Manager, will participate in a panel discussion on the topic: 'The Future of Life Saving Appliances (LSA)' on Wednesday 15 March at 1:00 PM.

Since the loss of the RMS Titanic in 1912, international convention has required passenger ships to carry lifeboats and liferafts with sufficient capacity to accommodate all guests and crewmembers. Today, we are in the midst of a revolution in LSA technology and this session will examine:

  • Continuous advances in lifeboat and life raft technology, including “mega lifeboats”.
  • Marine Evacuation Systems (MES) and self-propelled hybrid MES systems. 
  • Crew training and safety. 
  • Guest drills for new and unconventional systems.
