Workshop – Measurement of Regional Economic Effects Caused by Cruise Tourism

Gdansk, Poland 26. / 27. June 2017

The GCP workshop was organized by Project Partner Maritime Institute in Gdansk on 26-27 June 2017 at Maritime Culture Centre of National Maritime Museum in Gdansk. The meeting focused on results and major issues related to MIG’s concept study study 4.1.2a “Measurement of regional economic effects caused by cruise tourism”.

The event gathered representatives of several Project Partners, ports and their stakeholders, regional city offices, tourism organizations and international/local press. The two-day event has been divided into thematic sessions. Day 1 was dedicated to the contents of the Green Cruise Port concept study 4.1.2a “Measurement of regional economic effects caused by cruise tourism” and collecting stakeholders/ports perspectives on the subject of the study.

The study 4.1.2a developed by Maritime Institute in Gdansk focuses on few key elements: Baltic cruise traffic overview, the detailed overview of cruise sector economic impact and regional economic effects of cruise tourism. Created model of measurement of cruise tourism economic effects and required standards will be further implemented by the other Green Cruise Port Partner: Port of Rostock.
