ILTM Asia Pacific will be a virtual event this year, with Reed Exhibitions postponing the face-to-face event until 2022 and taking place online from 20-22 July.
“While vaccine rollouts are going in the right direction towards international travel’s recovery, it appears that July will still be too early for an in-person event of our size in Singapore,” said Alison Gilmore Portfolio, Director, ILTM Portfolio. “For this reason, we have made the decision to postpone ILTM Asia Pacific 2021 as a face-to-face gathering until 2022, and instead hold this year’s event as a virtual edition.”
The framework for the event will be consistent with the virtual editions delivered by ILTM during 2020 and will provide a sophisticated platform from which to access the top luxury travel agents representing the highest net worth of clients across the Asia Pacific region.
Designed to provide international and regional suppliers with new business opportunities and enhance industry and media relationships, ILTM Asia Pacific will deliver one-to-one online meetings, plus direct messaging between buyer or media and suppliers, in addition to opportunities to learn from content and industry insights available throughout the duration of the 3-day event.
Asia Pacific is still the fastest-growing wealth region in the world according to research undertaken by Barton, in collaboration with Wealth-X, for ILTM. Home to some of the world’s most prolific travellers, the research also reveals that Asia Pacific has contributed over $363 billion* annually to the luxury travel universe.
“With the financial resource, design and inherent ability to pivot during incredible disruption, APAC travellers should be seen as pioneers of the new luxury travel landscape, providing the much-needed economic injection the industry needs and has been waiting for,” added Gilmore.
