.Travel sets sail at cruise3sixty


FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – .Travel, the Internet extension for the travel and tourism industry, was featured as an exhibiter, speaker, and contributing sponsor of cruise3sixty. As the premier event and conference of the cruising industry, cruise3sixty is hosted by the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), a strategic partner of .travel. The event took place at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL from April 1-6, 2009. With record-breaking attendance and sponsorship, this year’s cruise3sixty proved to be a major success for everyone involved. Over the few short days that spanned the event, .travel hosted a sold-out educational seminar and met with over 2,000 travel industry professionals!

CEO of .travel, Edward A. Cespedes spoke on the topic of, “How to compete on the Internet” on Friday, April 3. The discussion turned out to be one of cruise3sixty’s most popular seminars. Cespedes touched upon the achievements of .travel and why owning a good domain name is such a vital component of being found on the web.

“The success of .travel at cruise3sixty goes to show that the travel industry is ready and in need of its own top level domain,” stated Cespedes. “With its clear branding and significant search-engine results, industry members are realizing that it is essential to purchase a .travel domain.”

Cruise3sixty ended with a bang with its traditional Hall of Fame Dinner

.Travel, along with other industry leaders such as American Express, Sabre, and Starwood Resorts sponsored the event. .Travel is proud to play such a major role in cruise3sixty this year and looks forward to a long and healthy relationship with CLIA, as well as participation in future events.
