This year’s show had nearly 12,000 attendees, a 10% increase over the 2013 show, coming from 127 countries.  During the Keynote address, top executives from the major Cruise Lines gave valuable insight into the State of the Global Cruise Industry. They all discussed the potential growth in different markets around the world.

Cruise Ship Miami furnished DVS with a networking forum allowing DVS to exhibit at their booth a Hybrid Wi-Fi solution and exciting new content for delivery to the vessels.

“This is our5th year exhibiting at the show and we plan to continue to be represented.  The show affords us the opportunity to network with current and new customers presenting our newest products and services as well as discussing future business,” said Jorge J. Necuze, DVS VP of Sales.

Shannon McKee, Cruise Account Manager states, “Meeting the ever growing and changing demands of the cruise industry is not an easy task.  Yet Digital Video System’s dedication to provide new technologies and innovative solutions to the maritime industry is stronger than ever after Cruise Shipping Miami.  The opportunities are vast.”
