Over lunch, Questex Hospitality + Travel sales and business development directors Danielle Cirami-Gillis and Chris Coon unveiled news of the brand-new Luxury Travel Exchange International  (LTX), which replaces the annual Luxury Travel Expo. The appointment-based LTX debuts from November 27-29 at The Palazzo Las Vegas and will feature an appointment-based, invitation-only program.
