“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. 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,” said Alison Gilmore, portfolio director, ILTM Portfolio.
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 three-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 USD363 billion annually to the luxury travel universe. The full report will be made available to all participants of ILTM Asia Pacific.
