Hosting almost 500 luxury travel buyers from 21 countries across the Asia Pacific, ILTM Asia was held 2-5 June 2014 in Shanghai, China.
VIP buyers met luxury travel suppliers on an exclusive one-to-one basis over 3 days. The buyer community was deliberately handpicked from key target markets across Asia with more than 42% new to this year’s event. A first time Virtuoso agent attending, Barbara Bates of Spencer Travel, Australia commented: “This was an exceptionally relevant event - the standard of suppliers is very high, the appointments are excellent and perfectly targeted for our clientele.”
Alison Gilmore, ILTM”s Senior Exhibition Director said: “ILTM Asia 2014 has revealed a real demand for elite travel experiences from the escalating Asia Pacific region. The results of this year’s show prove once more that ILTM Asia is the leading luxury travel forum to generate new business as well as confirm long-standing relationships across this exciting region.”
