Entries are open for the Luxperience Awards, run in conjunction with the annual luxury travel expo, Luxperience. The Awards recognise the industry’s endeavours and the evolution of luxury travel while highlighting the shining stars and visionaries of the premium leisure and experiential travel markets.
“This year our Awards will align with our theme for 2018: The Blue Print – A World Re-Designed,” Michelle Papas, Event Director at Luxperience, said.
“We’re taking Luxperience and the industry, to the next dimension: providing the framework, the connections and collaboration to create exclusive experiences and unique opportunities for the end consumer. The Awards will emphasise this by acknowledging the architects and creative designers re-imagining and motivating the experiential, luxury travellers’ behaviours.
“The Awards component of Luxperience is now in its fourth year and winning one of the Awards is now a highly sought after accolade,” Papas said.
“We’re expecting submissions from some of the world’s most impressive suppliers in the global premium travel arena. With the involvement of our new Diamond Partner, Tourism Australia, we are anticipating an avalanche of entries from Australian elite suppliers.
“These Awards recognise not only their efforts but the evolution of luxury travel and highlight the trendsetters of this uber-luxe community,” Papas adds. “Our winners set industry standards for inspiration, innovation and quality, raising the bar for others to emulate.”
Awards are open to both leisure and business event specialists emphasising the impact and influence of luxury travel across both segments. Submissions must be received by 3 August, 2018 to be included in the judging.
