IHEA is in full preparation mode for its 2022 Annual Meeting onboard Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas March 24-28. This will be the third time IHEA will hold an Annual Meeting on a cruise ship. 

“We are very excited to finally be able to meet once again onboard a ship,” said Anne Goyer, IHEA’s executive vice president. “I’ve been able to personally sail recently, and I believe this is the safest place to hold our next annual meeting. The ship is cleaned constantly, and their health and safety protocols are strictly followed. We look forward to welcoming everyone to IHEA’s 92nd Annual Meeting in March.”

This four-day event will include two sea days and a day in Costa Maya. This budget-friendly meeting allows both the members and the association to reduce expenses over a land-based resort – cruise lines include meeting items that land-based hotels do not. Registration fees for this meeting are greatly reduced. Depending on the cabin type you choose, members can save between 20-30% over traditional annual meeting costs. 

IHEA has an outstanding program planned with timely and important presentations. There will be plenty of time for social interaction during receptions, meal functions and a cruise ship mini-golf tournament if desired.
