A History of Successful Meetings
Landry & Kling are credited with being the first distribution channel between the cruise industry and corporate America. Visionaries who led the way in seagoing corporate meetings and incentives, founders Joyce Landry (Landry & Kling CEO) and Josephine Kling (Seasite CEO) ignited the corporate market for cruises by spearheading the meetings-at-sea concept back in 1982. With their exclusive focus on events and meetings-at-sea, they have played a crucial role in advancing the cruise ship as a viable meeting venue and creating a whole new market opportunity for the industry.
Landry & Kling’s trailblazing spirit has been a recurring theme, from their early days when at the Seatrade conference they dangled a bunch of carrots from the podium, challenging cruise lines to ‘match hotels in rolling out the red carpet for corporate groups,’ to being the dominate force in the ‘floating hotel’ phenomenon. Now, with Seasite, they have responded to the changing times by creating an online “powerhouse” that will enable incentive travel buyers and meeting planners to take control and become more savvy cruise buyers, which will forever change the way business and social groups source and plan meetings at sea.
In April 2009, Landry & Kling co-founders Jo Kling and Joyce Landry were inducted into the CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association) Hall of Fame, recognizing their significant contributions as “visionaries who led the way in seagoing meetings and incentives.” The company, which is based in Miami, the Cruise Capital of the World, is certified as a diversity supplier by WBENC (Women’s Business Enterprise National Council) and was been named among the Top Small Businesses in the United States by DiversityBusiness.com
