International Luxury Travel Market is “by-invitation-only”
The world’s most elite luxury travel specialists are due to meet in Cannes on December 5-8 in an effort to source new ideas and meet new suppliers. Visitors to the “by-invitation-only” International Luxury Travel Market will be trying to satisfy high spending customers’ evolving demands, the organisers say.
“Luxury travellers from across the globe are broadening their travel tastes, seeking new and authentic experiences,” Simon Mayle, the event’s marketing manager, commented. “Maintaining good relationships between agents, luxury travel suppliers and other partners in luxury travel design has never been more essential.”
Brands to attend include Relais & Chateaux, the Dorchester Collection, Amanresorts, Orient Express Trains & Cruises and Four Seasons, as well as new high-end suppliers such as Cicada Lodge in Australia, Minaret Station in New Zealand – accessible only by helicopter – and Pikaia Lodge, a 5-star eco-lodge set in the crater of an extinct volcano in the Galapagos Islands.
