Patrick Yanahan Sr.


attend Interpack and use Crossgates for the advantages of hotelship accommodation.

“A huge “THANK YOU” to you/Crossgates and to the ship staff!
Without your never ending support and efforts Interpack 2014 and the small cruise would never have been such a good time for my colleagues from IPS.
Our managing director, Mr. Stephan R. Schaerrer, was absolutely happy and therefore asked me to hire a hotel ship for next Interpack again.”
Sue Burkhardt, Travel Manager

Uponor GmbH

have booked with Crossgates since 2005 for the ISH Fair

“Uponor have once again seized the opportunity to book hotelship accommodation with Crossgates for our visitors to the 2007 *“ISH” Trade Fair* in Frankfurt/Main.
A follow-up staff survey regarding the hotelship service provided positive feedback. The cabin facilities, friendly crew, good connections and easy accessibility to the trade fair were particularly appreciated by our colleagues.

From an organisational point of view, co-operation with Crossgates is always very pleasant and professional, which facilitates easy and trouble-free planning. This aspect is especially important in the hectic time before a trade fair.
We are so pleased with the services and on-site organisation that we have already booked our ships for the next
trade fair.”


have been booking with Crossgates for the Bi-Annual IDS Fair in Cologne for the past 6 years.

“It is a pleasure doing business with Crossgates, the level of customer service provided is both remarkable and appreciated. It has been a wonderful experience and we will continue booking the ships in the future.” Liesbte Brike, G.C. Europe


have booked with Crossgates for Interpack 2011, and 2014 amd we have already started working with them to arrange their stay for 2017;

“Baker Perkins is a supplier of equipment to the food industry and Interpack in Dusseldorf is the most important single event in our promotional strategy. We like to provide our staff with a relaxing, comfortable and convenient place to stay and socialise and the hotelships provide exactly that. The facilities are excellent, the staff friendly and the prices reasonable.

We also value the service provided by Crossgates, who dealt with every request for additional rooms or changes of schedule very promptly, whether made before or during the fair. Having the hotel arrangements taken care of so professionally gave us more time to concentrate on organising our stand at the fair – which for us is the most important thing.” Keith Graham, Baker Perkins


a UK based events planning agency, works with the one of the world’s largest print and copy machine manufacturers, orchestrating their presence at the 4 yearly DRUPA Fair in Dusseldorf….

“Zibrant contacted Crossgates Travel to contract 2 hotel-ships during a major digital Print Congress in Dusseldorf in 2012. The event was a great success and having exclusive use of 2 hotel ships for our client was the ideal solution. This allowed us to host clients during the day for lunch etc. as well as giving the staff members somewhere to relax in the evening.

Crossgates handled the bookings in a very professional and efficient manner which made the whole experience very positive. So much so that we started looking at alternative hotel ships for 2016 before the event was even complete” Scott Barrowcliffe, Zibrant
