In light of the Covid-19 epidemic, Reed Travel Exhibitions has postponed its Singapore-based luxury travel event, ILTM Asia Pacific, to May 31 to June 3, 2021.
Alison Gilmore, ILTM portfolio director, said in a statement that the move was in response to “the ongoing conversations with our customers whose welfare is our number one priority”.
She added: “Due to the uncertainty in the region and around the world, with many of our clients facing company travel bans, we have reluctantly taken the decision not to go ahead with this year’s event, which was due to take place from May 18-21, 2020. Our thoughts are with all those affected in these difficult times.
“We also recognise that business has to continue. With this in mind, over the coming weeks, we will be creating ways of keeping our luxury travel community connected, to support and collaborate to keep our world moving during this difficult period.”
The rest of the events in the 2020 global portfolio remain unchanged, namely, ILTM Latin America, Sao Paulo (May 5-8); ILTM North America, Riviera Maya, Mexico (September 21-24); ILTM China, Shanghai (October 28-30); and ILTM Cannes (December 7-10).
