FrontRunner Professional and American Academy McAllister Institute of Funeral Service Announce 7th Annual Technology & Marketing Caribbean Workshop Cruise

April 1, 2015 – FrontRunner Professional and the American Academy McAllister Institute of Funeral Service (AAMI) have just announced the 7th annual Technology & Marketing Caribbean Workshop Cruise; “Chartering Your Course to Online Success”.


FrontRunner & AAMI are proud to bring this year’s workshop cruise to funeral professionals across North America. The 8-day Southern Caribbean cruise will take place on Carnival’s largest ship; Carnival Breeze, and set sail from Miami, Florida on February 13, 2016 with visits to the islands of Grand Turk, Aruba, Curacao, and Dominican Republic.


Funeral professionals will earn up to 5 Continuing Education credits (CE’s), while taking some time to relax, have fun, and of course network with other funeral professionals from all over the United States and Canada. Attendees can expect to walk away with a detailed online marketing strategy, a plan to dominate in the cremation market, and what to steer clear of when it comes to technology and their firm.

“We have designed the educational sessions this year to be completely different than previous years. As one of the speakers, I am very excited to teach funeral professionals the latest funeral and marketing technology trends, but more importantly give them a blueprint to walk away and know exactly where they do well, where they fall short and what they need to do to dominate with technology and marketing in their community” says Ashley Montroy, Marketing Director of FrontRunner Professional. “I have personally been asked by a number of funeral directors if we are doing the cruise this year, so I suspect we will have a very large group of attendees, which is great for both networking and learning!” continues Montroy.


Registration opens April 1, 2015 with cabins starting at just $870.00 USD per person. A number of cabins are on hold and will be given on a first come, first serve basis.
