NEW YORK (Nov. 17, 2014) ─ Questex Hospitality + Travel today previewed the latest luxury travel suppliers scheduled to participate in its 2014 Luxury Travel Exchange International (LTX), to be held Dec. 9-11 at The Palazzo in Las Vegas.
Participating suppliers include Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide; Thompson Hotels; Fantastica Italia; Within the Wild, for remote Alaska adventure lodging; and Mohonk Mountain House, situated in New York’s scenic Hudson Valley.
LTX brings prequalified, top-producing luxury and premium niche travel advisors together with leading suppliers for three days of interactive networking, accredited educational programming and intimate appointment options. The successful 2013 program hosted more than 5,000 one-to-one meetings among 1,000 professional travel advisors and luxury travel suppliers.
“We are fortunate to have key supporters from around the industry such as Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide,” said Jill Birkett, LTX event director. “Their broad portfolio and luxury brands, such as St. Regis, are of great interest to luxury advisors. We seek to bring both widely known and up-and-coming brands to our audience so they can learn something new and renew relationships.”
The event offers a traditional trade show and intimate meetings on its signature Exchange floor. The 2014 format will include eight-minute, mutually requested, one-to-one appointments to allow participants time to conduct business and discover how they can best fit each other’s needs. Additionally, open trade show floor hours will provide meeting opportunities for advisors and suppliers who were not scheduled to meet one another.
