ILTM Asia Pacific which takes place for the first time at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore, 21 – 24 May 2018, is attracting the attention of the world’s leading luxury travel brands who view the gateway to the region as key to their marketing business plans.
Referring to their attendance at next year’s debut event, Simon Scoot VP Global Luxury & Lifestyle Sales IHG commented: “We have been partners with ILTM Asia since it started – it’s in our DNA. The move to Singapore for ILTM Asia Pacific adds another choice for us.”
Other brands which have already confirmed their participation in ILTM Asia Pacific include Alila Hotels and Resorts, Capella Hotel Group, COMO Hotels & Resorts, Conrad Hotels and Resorts and Waldorf Hotels and Resorts, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Jumeirah, Langham Hotels International, Leading Hotels of the World, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, Marriott Luxury Hotels, Ponant, Regent Seven Seas, Rocco Forte Hotels, Rosewood Hotel Group, Silversea Cruises and Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
Simon Bosshart, Director China at Switzerland Tourism also supported the re-positioning of the event saying “We are looking forward to taking part in a show with the same ambiance, story and concept as ILTM in Cannes, but dedicated to the Asia Pacific.” Switzerland Tourism join Dubai, Turespana and Tourism New Zealand among many other destinations taking part in ILTM Asia Pacific.
Alison Gilmore, Director of the ILTM Collection added:
“We are taking shape already, Singapore is a city that provides an efficient backdrop for the business of ILTM, then transforms itself into a buzzing night life scene which will give us some great opportunities for our parties all of which we will be making a lot more noise about over the coming months – expect to see us bringing the world to Asia in a very productive and special way.”
ILTM Asia Pacific is an invitation-only event where the suppliers of luxury travel experiences meet the buyers representing the fast growing market of luxury travel planners and agents. The Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore will be joined by the Ritz-Carlton and Conrad Hotels as partner hotels for this dynamic new event for the region.
Asia Pacific surpassed North America for the first time in 2016 to become the region with the largest amount of high net worth wealth (World Wealth Report 2016). By 2025, the report states that Asia-Pacific’s high net worth population would more than double to 11.7 million individuals. Luxury travel is outpacing ordinary travel in Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines and ILTM Asia Pacific will now focus on this growth, collectively bringing together international and regional luxury travel suppliers to boost and build their businesses from this dynamic region.
