ILTM Asia Pacific returns with a vengeance in June 2023

Leading regional luxury travel event will reveal the latest ILTM Buzz v Reality research: Decoding the Luxury Traveller’s Mindset; Spotlight China.

With less than 3 months until the region’s leading luxury travel event takes place, ILTM Asia Pacific is set to reach pre-pandemic levels of attendance with an expected 1000 delegates looking to gather at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore on June 19 – 22.

This year’s edition sees a myriad of business opportunities for international and regional luxury travel brands and destinations alike, with over 450 select luxury travel advisors from across the region looking to connect with over 450 luxury travel providers. As well as pre-scheduled meetings programmes on the show floor, the three days will include an abundance of networking prospects across Singapore. In addition, a curated, exclusive VIP media programme of events for 35 of the most influential international and regional luxury travel media will also run concurrently.

The most productive luxury travel agents representing the region’s highest net worth of clients will be hosted at the event by ILTM in Singapore – 44% will be new to the trade show this year; the majority (60%) will be from Australasia, while 9% come from South-East Asia, 8% from China, 7% from India and Hong Kong, 6% from Taiwan, and 3% from Japan.

The show has also already seen confirmation from smaller, independent luxury travel suppliers such as ÀNI Private Resorts – the world’s first collection of exclusive and all-inclusive private resorts, Jawakara – a new, high-end family friendly and multigenerational Maldives island, and Angama – a stunning new safari lodge in Kenya. Established brands such as Rosewood Hotels and Resorts, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Marriott International Luxury Brands, IHG Hotels & Resorts and Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group will be present, as well as XO Private, Preferred Hotels, Small Luxury Hotels of the World and Leading Hotels of the World who will be showcasing many of their member hotels. Attendees can tour several international destinations across the show floor with Fiji, Italy, Portugal and Korea all committing to attend.

Alison Gilmore, Director of ILTM Portfolio with RX Global, comments: “ILTM Asia Pacific will bring new levels of travel expertise and boundless energy. The success of ILTM is not just the appointments on the show-floor, but the many different opportunities to meet, connect, network and build relationships – often officially and informally.”

Another highlight will be the results of the latest ILTM research undertaken in collaboration with research specialist Altiant, to be launched during the event’s Opening Forum, held at the Ritz Carlton Millenia Singapore. “Decoding the Luxury Traveller’s Mindset; Spotlight China” is the third edition of ILTM’s research series ‘Buzz versus Reality’ and will provide valuable and actionable insights for all attendees.

This new report focuses on the recent and planned travel behaviours of wealthy Chinese travellers, producing deep dive data on their intentions toward travel, their expectations related to luxury travel experiences, and their use of travel agents, with the aim to separate fact from fiction when it comes to luxury travel trends.

Ms Gilmore continues: “The last three years have seen the travel industry confronted by unique and unprecedented challenges, giving way to predictions, opinions, and forecasts. And as China moves out of a prolonged period of lockdown the travel industry needs to understand which trends are being reflected and which are mere speculation.”
