Seatrade Cruise Global 2022

theICEway at Seatrade Cruise Global 2022

STC Global took place at the end of April and was a huge success.

The latest edition of cruise's biggest event brought the industry together for the first time in 3 years. Members from theICEway's ICE, CRIBB and eTestware teams were on hand to witness what was a spectacular gathering. Those with a keen interest in IT were treated to The Interactive Tech Zone in partnership with theICEway. This allowed guests to engage with the latest in innovative technology. Our co-founders, Ian Richardson and Conor Byrne, were also on hand to moderate some fantastic tech talk panels - more on those below.
