Gov. Kenneth E. Mapp left the territory Saturday to meet with cruise industry leaders ahead of the annual Seatrade Cruise Global conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Lt. Gov. Osbert E. Potter is serving as acting governor until Mapp returns to the U.S. Virgin Islands Monday.

During the governor’s brief visit, he was scheduled to meet with the leadership of the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association, top executives of several cruise lines, and Virgin Islanders in the South Florida area who he will debrief on the Territory’s recovery from Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

The U.S. Virgin Islands delegation to Seatrade Cruise Global, which begins Monday, includes representatives of the Department of Tourism, the Virgin Islands Port Authority, the West Indian Company Limited and members of the 32nd Legislature.

For more than 30 years, Seatrade Cruise Global has been a leading international exhibition and conference serving the cruise industry by bringing together buyers and suppliers for a week of networking, sourcing, innovation and education.
