Over 50 suppliers showcasing everything F&B, from meat, seafood, dairy, grains and plant-based alternatives to cocktails, cookware, menus, equipment and more.



The two-day seminar programme will uncover what’s trending in F&B, from sustainability to supply chains to delivering unique guest experiences.


F&B Networking

Bringing together F&B buyers, suppliers, executives, hotel ops and guest experience professionals, this is the place to network with the cruise F&B industry.

What the industry said

“HEINEKEN is excited to sponsor the inaugural F&B@Sea event; a very welcome initiative from Seatrade that perfectly spotlights the growing importance of hospitality in the guest experience. Having the opportunity to meet our cruise line partners and other suppliers in this dedicated forum will be a valuable opportunity for us all to shape, accelerate and maximize the potential in this new era of enjoyment at sea."


"F&B@Sea will be for us a moment to showcase our category approach, our commitment to creating exceptional experiences and our expertise in supporting the hospitality industry and retail. After a stalled period of Covid F&B@Sea is a special moment for all those in food and beverage like us to come together to present their unique credentials and excitement for the opportunity at sea ahead."


"Our goal is to ensure all attendees get fully immersed, informed and educated about our entire Sazerac Portfolio while being able to sample our delicious bourbons and whiskies.  It is important to have the attendees see every aspect of our portfolio and how it can fit into each consumption occasion during every cruise ship’s passenger journey."


“I am certainly looking forward to visiting F&B@Sea. It will be a great opportunity to meet industry colleagues I have known for many years, and at the same time explore the latest trends in F&B, particularly what the future can bring in terms of technology, innovation and what can make the guest experience even better than it is."
