International Luxury Travel Market (ILTM) 2015 will introduce The ILTM Sanctuary at this year’s flagship event in Cannes – a new and dedicated focus for spa specialists to meet international innovators in spa and wellness.
With the spa and wellness industry already a US$439 billion market and growth of 55% predicted before 2017, ILTM are offering an exclusive package for spa suppliers to create bespoke new business opportunities.
Alison Gilmore, Senior Exhibition Director, ILTM Portfolio comments: “We are delighted to unveil this opportunity for some of the world’s top spa destinations, wellness resorts and retreats to meet with the leading buyers specialising in designing luxury leisure programmes with a specific interest in spa and wellness travel.”
The ILTM Sanctuary overall package includes a stand space within The ILTM Sanctuary pavilion, a delegate badge, a set of appointments, access to all ILTM official networking events and access to the world’s best travel editors within a session of face-to-face press roundtables. This offer is available for a limited time only to a maximum of 10 spa properties.
In addition, The ILTM Sanctuary will partner with the UK’s Daily Telegraph’s Ultratravel magazine to feature each of The ILTM Sanctuary exhibitors in its November 2015 edition.
Over 1400 luxury travel buyers will attend ILTM 2015, 90% of whom have not attended another ILTM event this year. A minimum of 30% of the buyers in attendance will be entirely new to ILTM, providing a continually replenished community of new business prospects and guaranteeing the social atmosphere that is so integral to the event.
Alison Gilmore concludes: “Recognising the exponential growth in the spa and wellness industry, ILTM prides itself on generating new relationships and market share for our exhibitors and highlighting key areas of opportunity across many wellness-related sectors.”
