Luxperience 2014 takes off in Sydney

Luxperience 2014 Sydney

This weekend, luxury travel specialists will descend on Sydney to explore the latest in luxury and experiential tourism at Luxperience 2014 - an event that brings together over 300 travel agents with over 250  tourism operators from around the globe for three days of serious networking.

Luxperience is the only global business exchange located in the Southern hemisphere dedicated to exploring the connection that exists between bespoke luxury and high-end experiential travel. The trade show has been 12 months in planning and, now in its third year, has experienced significant growth with exhibitors from as far afield as Bhutan, Mauritius, Tahiti, Dubai, Peru, India and the UK as well as increases in the Asia Pacific regions.

New Zealand has the greatest share of exhibitors, and has doubled its presence to 26 per cent of the total, closely followed by Asia, which is on a par with Australia at 25 per cent of share. 

Reflecting recent trends in the luxury tourism sector, there is also an increase in the number of adventure and experiential tour companies exhibiting, as more and more operators recognise that today’s high-end traveller wants a richer experience while on holiday.

“Our experiential exhibitors offer bespoke travel designers a choice of unique experiences in some of the most divine locations around the world; from ski safaris in the Swiss Alps, to trekking in the foothills of the Himalayas in Bhutan through to unique water based activities in Queenstown,” says CEO Lindy Andrews.

Buyers will be kept busy over the three-day event, with pre-scheduled appointments and access to exclusive social networking events, access to the LuxConnect Private Community and to initiatives such as the Corporate Connect Event, and ‘Thought Leaders Forum ’.
