ILTM, held 5-8 Decemeber 2011 at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in Cannes, is the leading annual business to business event for the global luxury travel community. ILTM operates as an ‘invitation only’ event and selects the world’s most elite luxury travel buyers and suppliers. The event showcases the industry’s diversity, offering everything from remote destinations and unique travel experiences to boutique hotels and luxury transport.
It is clear that the profile of the high-end traveller from each and every corner of the world is changing. Luxury tour operators and buyers now look for the authentic, the new, the actual experience as opposed to only the 5 star magnificence traditionally associated with those with large amounts of money to spend.
ILTBM 2011 in Cannes runs from 5 – 8 December and the event is the opportunity for the luxury travel community to meet. VIPs from luxury travel and other key travel influencers including the best of the world’s luxury travel media will share perspectives on industry trends.
With the highest standards of service expected by elite travellers, so too is a dedicated and active programme of environmental and commitment to corporate responsibility. Luxury travellers are increasingly looking to get under the skin of a destination and know that the people they travel with care for their natural environment and local community.
Simon Mayle, ILTM Marketing Manager, commented: “The 10th anniversary of ILTM in December is brimming with ideas and solutions for luxury travel agents and operators to take-away, tailor and use within their own businesses. ” There is also a focus on personalizing the luxury experience operators customise their elite products and services through the closer understanding of their newer client bases.
