Inaugural Cruise Ship Interiors Expo Covers Marine Fabrics and More

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – The first Cruise Ship Interiors Expo will land at the Miami Beach Convention Center on June 18 – 20, 2019, and include some well-known, marine-fabric companies, P/Kaufmann Contract, and Cruise by Richloom Contract, along with local vendors such as Magitex Décor.

There will be some 150 exhibitors for the expo’s launch covering the range of marine interiors for the cruise industry: interior furnishings and finishings, “sustainable” interiors, and design trends, among others.

Suzanne Ralton, the third-generation owner of Agua Fabrics, says she’s excited about the event, which she heard, had no issue finding exhibitors. This is the second year her London-based company continues to branch into American hospitality and marine markets. Ralton says Agua is well-known in England for its performance fabrics.

Established in Miami in 2010, Magitex offers decorative textiles for all types of commercial and hospitality applications. In time for the expo, Magitex launches its newest product, Nevada, a blackout drapery fabric consisting of 100% polyester.

More than 150 suppliers will showcase cutting-edge equipment covering flooring and decking, turnkey outfitting, public areas, fabrics, and interior design. Some of the world’s leading cruise suppliers will be on hand, including Trimline, Berenblum Busch Architects, Bolidt, MJM Group, Chelsom, Elmo Leather, Forbo Flooring Systems, Bez Marine, Studio ADO and Tillberg Design of Sweden.

The new trade show will be housed in a new, state-of-the-art hall at the Miami Beach Convention Center, which is located close to major industry names such as Norwegian Cruise Line, Virgin Voyages, and Carnival Cruise Line.

Petu Kummala, director of interior design at Carnival, says in a statement: “Cruise Ship Interiors Expo is an exciting and needed addition to the Cruise industry’s Design and Architecture, which will provide a source for designers and suppliers to connect, exchange ideas, and see the latest products that can be used on future projects.”
