Singapore Cruise Centre Private Ltd. Has been named the platinum sponsor of Cruise Shipping Asia 2011, scheduled to take place this November in Singapore.

As the show's principal sponsor, Singapore Cruise Centre will showcase its position as a cruise terminal operator in one of the fastest-growing markets in the industry.

Singapore Cruise Centre handles more than eight million passengers annually at three ferry terminals and one cruise terminal. With the opening of the state-of-the-art International Cruise Terminal at Marina South, Singapore's cruise terminal infrastructure will double in capacity by April 2012.

Singapore Cruise Centre had a lead role in forming the Asia Cruise Terminal Association and chairs the organization. ACTA serves as a regional forum for cruise terminal operators to cooperate in terminal development, operations and management, and to raise awareness of available facilities and services.

"We share the Cruise Shipping Asia vision to tap into the rapid growth of the cruise industry in Asia-Pacific, and it is our honor and privilege to be the Platinum Sponsor of this inaugural event," said Christina Siaw, CEO of Singapore Cruise Centre. "We look forward to CSA 2011 and the opportunities to learn, network and share experiences and expertise within and outside of the industry."
