The Rama Rebbapragada Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Cruise Industry in Asia was awarded to Destination Asia’s Bob Guy at the Seatrade Cruise Asia Gala Dinner in Busan, Korea. The dinner formed part of Seatrade Cruise Asia, taking place from 12-13 May, 2016 at the Busan Port International Cruise Terminal. Seatrade Cruise Asia is an annual cruise industry event purely focused on Asia and comprises of an exhibition, conference, networking and travel agent training.

Bob Guy is executive director and advisor to both Destination Asia Singapore and Destination Asia Malaysia. An industry veteran with several decades of experience in travel industry operations in North America, Australia and Asia, Bob is an experienced DMC, meeting and event planner, and cruise industry leader.

The award was presented to Bob Guy by Andrew Williams, general manager of Seatrade, in recognition of his long and outstanding engagement within the cruise industry in Asia.

Dr Zinan Liu, president of North APAC & China at Royal Caribbean International, and a keynote speaker at the event said of Bob Guy. “He has been involved with cruising since its absolute beginning in Asia. His experience with the industry and his encyclopedic knowledge of the geography of Asia made him a natural point of contact for the cruise line leaders who first came to Asia at that time, such as Adam Goldstein, Arne Bakkelund, Peter Cox, Stein Kruse and Bruce Krumrine, and of course the man whom this award is named after, Rama Rebbapragada.”

Upon receipt of the award, Bob Guy said, “It is a great honor to receive this award, given in the name of Rama Rebbapragada, a cruise industry leader that I knew well and worked with closely. We worked together to grow cruise tourism in the Asia Pacific region. I remember Rama fondly and will strive to continue this work in his name.”
