ILTM Asia Pacific will take place online again this year, as continued challenges in global travel and conducting in-person events force organisers to postpone its face-to-face edition to 2022.
The virtual show will be held on July 20 to 22.
Alison Gilmore, director, ILTM Portfolio, said in a statement: “While vaccine rollouts are going in the right direction towards international travel’s recovery, it appears that July will still be too early for an in-person event of our size in Singapore.”
The framework for the event will be consistent with the virtual editions delivered by ILTM during 2020, and will provide a sophisticated platform from which to access the top luxury travel agents representing the highest net worth of clients across the Asia-Pacific region.
Designed to provide international and regional suppliers with new business opportunities and enhance industry and media relationships, ILTM Asia Pacific will deliver one-to-one online meetings, plus direct messaging between buyer or media and suppliers, in addition to opportunities to learn from content and industry insights throughout the three-day event.
A new report on the region’s appetite for luxury travel, researched and authored by Barton in collaboration with Wealth-X for ILTM, will be released to event participants.
“With the financial resource, design and inherent ability to pivot during incredible disruption, Asia-Pacific travellers should be seen as pioneers of the new luxury travel landscape, providing the much needed economic injection the industry needs and has been waiting for,” added Gilmore.
