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
– Exclusive show perks
– Access to the CSI Plus platform & premium content
– Brand awareness & promotional support through our blog and Member Bulletin
– Listing on the Makers List

How can I network with CSI Plus?

Premium Membership includes access to our online networking (Community Networking Hour) AND in-person CSI Plus Socials!

Community Networking Hour should be a staple in your diary if you want to have real-time conversations with fellow suppliers and VIP members, from across the globe.

CSI Plus Socials are our in-person events. Enjoy informal networking and drinks at some cruise interiors hotspots.

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!

Premium Membership also includes access to the CSI Plus online platform which is home to:

What our VIP Members have to say…

“I have found that the social and networking aspects of this industry are important to me both professionally and personally and the past two years have obviously limited this. I believe this platform is the perfect answer for that right now and moving into the future.” Bree Louie, Holland America

“I find CSI a great place to both meet new people and companies and get introduced to new technology and products as they come to market. It also provides an informal place for me to stay connected with current suppliers and manufacturers. It is a useful forum to discuss the supply chain with other owners and I also believe it gives the supply chain good access to us as owners to understand what challenges we face and what we need to overcome them. .” Matt Easton, Marella Cruises (TUI)

What our Premium Members have to say…

“The Estonian Marine community is so grateful for the CSI and the team. You have helped us to open so many doors. Cannot wait to see what happens after the Miami and London event. Keep on doing this amazing job!” Estonian Marine and Manufacturing Initiative

“I find that the CSI-Plus platform is innovative and is getting better and better, creating ways to engage with potential prospects in a productive atmosphere online” Andrie Iglesias, Co-Founder, Andriali Contract
