Onboard Hospitality expands tech and retail expertise with new section Editor

Onboard Hospitality has appointed Stuart Forster as its very first Technology and Retail Editor. The move represents a commitment to the publication’s focus on these two ever-evolving and growing sectors.

Since joining Onboard Hospitality Magazine in 2022 as Editor of the magazine, Stuart has fully immersed himself in the industry. 

“Getting to know the onboard hospitality industry as Editor of Onboard Hospitality Magazine has been a terrific experience,” said Stuart. “I’m thankful to all of the people who have been so welcoming.

“I look forward to continuing to collaborate with many of the people who have been so helpful as I begin a new role as Technology and Retail Editor.”

As Stuart steers his focus to the technology and retail sectors of the industry, previous Digital Editor April Waterston will manage the editorial direction of the magazine as its new Managing Editor.

“Of course, the onboard hospitality industry is vast. To write with authority about topics such as technology and retail requires focus and I look forward to doing that as part of my new position,” adds Stuart. “Technology plays a major role in shaping passenger experiences and I’m looking forward to exploring that.”

“The next few months are going to be busy. I’m already looking forward to meeting people at AmberSky in Riga, AIX/WTCE in Hamburg and the APEX/IFSA Global EXPO in Long Beach later this year. 

“I look forward to continuing to work closely with the Onboard Hospitality team!”
