Almost 500 buyers from 20 countries across the Asia Pacific to be selected for invitation to attend this exclusive event ILTM Asia, 3 – 6 June 2013, Shanghai
International Luxury Travel Market (ILTM) Asia 2013 – welcoming 490 luxury travel buyers and agents representing high-net worth individuals from across the Asia Pacific region – promises escalating business opportunities for its guest list of luxury travel suppliers from all four corners of the world.
ILTM Asia 2013 will welcome almost 500 contemporary and classic luxury travel suppliers to meet with the elite Asia Pacific travel specialists and buyers during the 3-day event. The event allows these buyers to visit the high end, authentic products and services from over 70 countries defining luxury travel experiences today.
Alison Gilmore, ILTM Exhibition Director commented: “ILTM Asia’s hand-picked guest list brings the world’s premium creators of luxury travel experiences to Shanghai. This year, Latin America is leading the way: profiling expeditions along the Amazon, in-depth visions of South American contemporary art and authentic, adventurous tours throughout the Andes. Latin America joins inspirational products and services from all over the world at ILTM Asia 2013 to dazzle buyers from the key burgeoning markets across the Asia Pacific, from Japan to Australia, India to Taiwan and China to Korea.”
Original and unexpected travel experiences from Latin America include Brazil’s travel design experts Matuete; Journey Mexico – specialising in adventure, Mayan exploration and revealing Mexico’s natural beauty and heritage; Mai 10, Argentine experts offering tailor-made itineraries to exceed expectations of families, adventurous individuals and groups from across the world; and the best of Peru with luxury travel specialists Aracari.
Como Hotels will also participate in ILTM Asia 2013, presenting their luxury properties and latest openings from around the world from urban hotels and wellness resorts to adventure retreats and island getaways. Pamela Balce, Regional Director of Sales, Asia Pacific at Como Hotels commented: “ILTM Asia goes from strength to strength. There is no other luxury travel business market in Asia where we stand by our peers across the world in offering the broadest range of high-end luxury travel experiences. We are delighted to be taking part in ILTM Asia 2013.”
The Asia Pacific is home to some of the largest populations of high-net worth individuals and consequently, many international suppliers are seeking invitations to take part in ILTM Asia 2013. The event facilitates business success for international companies within the region, as well as meeting the demands of the most discerning of buyers from across the diverse Asia Pacific region.
The number of approved travel specialists at last year’s ILTM event in Asia increased by 20%. On securing a place among the elite at the 2013 event, Alison Gilmore comments:
“We are always interested in new buyers, planners and luxury travel suppliers, although they must undergo a strict qualification process if they wish to apply.”
