Liverpool Cruise Terminal has won a number of awards in recent years, Seatrades ‘Cruise Destination of the Year’ and ‘UK Port of Call’ no less than 3 occasions in the past 4 years whilst for Angie, after more than 20 years working in the travel industry both overseas and in the UK, she has become a popular and influential figure in the modern day tourism and maritime industry being named ‘International Personality of the Year’ by Women’s International Shipping & Trading Association (WISTA)in 2014, voted as Chair of Cruise Britain in 2015 and named as Mersey Maritimes ‘Ambassador of the Year’ in 2016, recognising Ms Redhead’s decade-long commitment to the development of a thriving cruise industry in Liverpool.
Angie took up the newly created role of Head of City Assets in 2017 and is now responsible for iconic Liverpool City Halls, St Georges Hall and Town Hall as well as Liverpool Tourist Information Centre, in addition to Liverpool Cruise Terminal. There are ambitious plans in the pipeline to ensure these venues and services become the premier venues in the north west of England for business tourism and events as well as plans to build a new cruise terminal development in the city in 2020 so there is still so much more to achieve.
