Gibraltar was represented at the 51st MedCruise General Assembly held from 11-14 October in Toulon France, by the Gibraltar Port Authority and the Gibraltar Tourist Board.

During the General Assembly meeting, MedCruise member representatives together with other guests discussed the latest developments in the cruise industry, as well as the implications and prospects of cruising in the Med and its adjoining seas.

All regular and associate members discussed the developments in the region, while they also devoted time in B2B meetings and interactive Workshops with cruise line executives and members of the international press specialising in the cruise industry.

During the event, elections were held for a new President and Board of Directors of the Association. Nicky Guerrero, Chief Executive of the Gibraltar Tourist Board was elected to the Board of Directors comprising twelve members, specifically with two other candidates representing large ports in the Western Mediterranean.

Nicky said, “I’m very honoured to have been elected to the Board of Directors of MedCruise. I’ve been representing Gibraltar within MedCruise, along with a team from the Rock, for more than twenty years now and I felt the time was right to offer my service to the Association in an even more productive capacity.

Gilbert Licudi QC, Minister for Tourism and the Port said “It is extremely gratifying to see that Nicky Guerrero has been elected to the Board of Directors of an important organisation as Medcruise is in the cruising industry. This is undoubtedly a testament of the respect and high regard in which Mr Guerrero personally and Gibraltar generally are held within Medcruise. It follows a very successful Medcruise meeting held in Gibraltar in June of this year at which members of Medcruise will clearly have been impressed by the work carried out by Mr Guerrero and his team”.
