This was the third consecutive year that Chelsom have exhibited at the hugely influential Cruise Shipping Miami exhibition which took place from 11-14th March at the Miami Beach Convention centre in Florida and enjoyed its most successful year to date with over 10,000 industry professionals in attendance. Director, Will Chelsom and the Head of Marine Sales USA, Jason Dodd were at the helm to showcase the latest designs from the extensive Edition 23 collection and visitors to the stand were welcomed with an exclusive insight in to the exceptional portfolio of maritime lighting Chelsom has to offer.
Located in the Design and Refurbishment section, the team were visited by key executives from major cruise operators such as Carnival USA, Royal Caribbean and NCL along with major interior designers and architects from the industry who all come together for this important week in the cruise industry calendar.
In recent years Chelsom has built on the huge success it has experienced in the hotel industry to become one of the leading global suppliers to the international cruise marketplace, with an enviable list of clients including Windstar, Disney Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean, NCL and Cunard to name a few.
The last 12 months have been seen a number of significant projects within the cruise ship market contributing to the increasing success of Chelsom within this sector, most notable of which are the stunning feature lighting in the restaurant on board Celebrity’s Millennium class ship, Infinity, along with the refurbishment programme of the Windstar fleet which not only involved supplying lighting to all the staterooms, but also being commissioned to manufacture and supply a central reception installation to illuminate the heart of the main deck’s interior.
Chelsom had a fantastic response to its latest collection at CSM and most importantly to the great work it’s been doing in the cruise ship lighting marketplace and the team were delighted with their success at the show, Director Will Chelsom said: “We were really thrilled to be exhibiting in Miami again this spring and it certainly didn’t disappoint, with so many new builds in the pipeline as well as an array of refurbishment projects on the cards it’s a really exciting time to be part of the industry. We have worked extremely hard to grow the Chelsom brand globally especially within the cruise marketplace and with a great team on board and a number of very high profile projects to our name in 2013 and 2014 there is no doubt that Chelsom will continue to flourish.”
