What is CSI Plus Membership?

An introduction to CSI Plus…
With the industry’s two major exhibitions – Cruise Ship Interiors America and Cruise Ship Interiors Europe on hold due to the infamous pandemic of 2019, we set out to ensure we were keeping the community connected during such a tricky time. In January 2021, CSI Plus was born!

As trade shows came back to life towards the end of 2021, CSI Plus has continued to adapt with the needs of our vibrant community. We have two types of Membership. Simply put, VIP Membership is for Cruise Lines and Shipyard executives, and Premium Membership is for quality product suppliers and services providers that serve these sectors.

What is CSI Plus?
CSI Plus is the official membership platform of the cruise interiors community. Membership is for forward-thinking professionals working within the cruise interiors sector. CSI Plus membership gives VIPs the power to search and source suppliers, share their expertise in the sector, keep up-to-date with the latest trends and grow their professional network. For suppliers, it gives visibility, promotional support, a growing network and a place to learn about the industry.

What does Premium Membership Include?
★ Unparalleled networking opportunities
★ Access to whitepapers, webinar, cruise conversations and industry reports
★ Brand awareness & promotional support via our Member Bulletin and LinkedIn
★ Listing on the Makers List, and profile in the Member Directory

How can I network with CSI Plus?
Premium Membership includes access to our online and in-person networking events. Through regularly attending these networking events you will have the opportunity to establish a network, build valuable relationships with fellow members, increase your brand reputation, and discover opportunities for collaboration and of course learn!
