INVITATION PROCESS OPENS FOR ILTM ASIA 2011
(13 – 16 June 2011, Shanghai)
Invitations to take part in ILTM (International Luxury Travel Market) Asia, the only luxury travel event dedicated to luxury travel buyers from across the Asia-Pacific region, are now open to VIP Buyers and Exhibitors at the 2011 event, 13 – 16 June 2011, Shanghai.
Taking place 13 – 16 June 2011 in Shanghai, China, ILTM Asia is exclusively created for Pan-Asian buyers, planners and designers of luxury travel to meet directly with the world’s leading luxury travel suppliers in a series of bespoke pre-scheduled one-to-one meetings. Founded on a strict qualification process for both buyers and suppliers, ILTM Asia only brings together the very best from the global luxury travel community to this exclusive, ‘invitation-only’ event.
The unrivalled ILTM Asia Pre-Scheduled Appointment and Online Diary programme allows members to meet with their choice of up to 41 buyers or suppliers in 15 minute face-to-face meetings each day, maximising the use of their time at the show.
The level of expansion across the Asia Pacific region, together with the relative youth of many of the specific markets, have created a still more significant leading role for ILTM Asia. As the forum for many senior luxury travel movers and shakers, the ILTM Asia Ultratravel Forum – a unique feature at the event - facilitates regional ideas, information and education – vital to any company wishing to increase business across Pan-Asia.
At the heart of ILTM Asia’s success, lies its dedication to identifying the finest VIP luxury travel buyers from across the breadth of the region who, in order to secure their place among Asia-Pacific’s buying elite, must have a proven track record with international luxury travel providers and future business to place with the exhibitors taking part in ILTM Asia 2011.
With Asia Pacific travellers increasingly seeking further afield destinations, international suppliers seeking invitations to take part are significant. ILTM Asia delivers Asia Pacific buyers, facilitating business success for international companies within the region, as well as meeting the demands of these discerning Pan-Asia buyers.
Debbie Joslin, Group Exhibition Director, Luxury Portfolio at Reed Travel Exhibitions comments:
“The Asia Pacific region continues to expand rapidly, driven by strong economic growth in China and already established luxury travel markets such as Australia and Japan - the community is varied with dense areas of high net worth individuals from some of the regions’ most dynamic cities.
ILTM Asia is pivotal in providing an insight into the luxury travel patterns of elite travellers from each of the Pan Asia regions. It is also the forum to identify new trends and learn about undiscovered properties worldwide – 20% of the exhibitors last year were new to the event - introducing authentic and indigenous experiences from across the spectrum of global luxury travel.”
Last year’s ILTM event in Asia delivered more than 20% newly approved travel specialists. On securing a place among the elite at the 2011 event, Debbie comments:
“We are always interested in new buyers, planners and luxury travel suppliers, however to apply they must undergo a strict qualification process.”
ILTM Asia also provides an unparalleled platform for those looking to grow their business into the Asian Pacific region. More than 350 suppliers will cover the complete range of luxury travel at the event, from ultra-luxurious destinations to hidden islands, secluded spas and private yachts and much more with many new additions to the 2011 line-up. Some of the new exhibitors for 2011 already include Song Saa Private Island in Cambodia, Regent Global Holdings and The Chateau Spa & Organic Wellness Resort in Malaysia.
ILTM Asia also welcomes back a host of returning exhibitors from 2010 who recognise the vital role ILTM Asia plays in their business development for 2011, including Maybourne Hotel Group, Abercrombie & Kent and Australia’s Wilderness Safaris.
