The dedicated space will be known as ILTM Débutants.
Tennis champion Andy Murray’s hotel Cromlix and Chez Roux, a 15 bedroom Victorian mansion with a Chez Roux restaurant overseen by the legendary chef Albert Roux OBE KFO close to Dunblane, Scotland has confirmed participation in this first edition of ILTM Débutants and is scheduled to re-open next spring, ahead of the 2014 Ryder Cup, which is being staged nearby at Gleneagles.
Alison Gilmore, Senior Exhibition Director, ILTM Portfolio commented, “Since 2001, ILTM has been the platform for the most exciting new hotels and high-end travel experiences to launch themselves to the world. These new hotels and experiences have included destination pioneers who have brought the new and the inspirational to the travel landscape and included many unexpected, under-the-radar gems.
This year, we have created ILTM Débutants - a focused feature area at ILTM in Cannes (2 – 5 December 2013) to highlight these new and exciting products to the luxury travel industry.”
John Green MD JG Collection stated, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to launch Cromlix at ILTM Débutants. Initiatives such as these keep exhibitions engaging for buyers and allow new suppliers a platform to present their brand to an international audience.”
ILTM Débutants will give the global community of the luxury travel industry an opportunity to highlight their new launches to the world’s leading buyers and planners of luxury leisure travel itineraries in a dedicated space. Exhibitors will also be able to meet with the world’s leading influential luxury travel editors, writers and bloggers to gain exposure for their new products and experiences.
ILTM takes place from 2-5 December 2013. Now in its 12th year, the invitation only event hosts up to 1,400 VIP buyers from across the world to meet with up to 1,400 elite travel suppliers in mutually matched, pre-scheduled appointments on a strict one-to-one ratio, to build relationships and luxury travel business communities.
