The FCCA Conference is a four-day event designed ​to ​foster ​a ​better ​understanding ​of ​the ​inner ​workings ​of ​the ​cruise ​industry and help attendees improve their cruise tourism business. The conference provides forums for discussions on tourism development, ports, safety, security, and other cruise industry issues.

Minister Grant takes a moment from the Welcome Reception to enjoy an experience in a horse drawn carriage.

The reception allows for delegates to experience a unique attraction within the host destination as is the case for the Quinta Montes Molin. This mansion was originally built in 1902 and has been fully restored with all of its authentic European Furniture and décor. The mansion is also home to a grand garden which was the site for the reception.
