Landry & Kling is recognized as the world leader in ship-based meetings and events, incentive cruises, floating accommodations, and disaster relief/humanitarian aid vessel charters.

These include the Scottish Government’s Ukrainian Resettlement Initiative, the 4th Arab/African Summit in Equatorial Guinea, the Fifth Summit of the Americas in Trinidad, the G7 Summit in Cornwall, England, the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland, and the Rio Summer Olympics.

Headquartered in Miami, Florida with an additional location in Southhampton, UK, we are uniquely positioned to meet the growing demand for ship and vessel solutions anywhere in the world.

Our strategic shipping and maritime partnerships give us access to a worldwide database of ships and vessels none can match. This allows us to source appropriate vessels and offer turnkey solutions, no matter your specific needs and requirements.
