Luxperience- more than a travel trade show

Luxperience 3LUXPERIENCE is the Southern Hemisphere’s only luxury business event that connects the innovative experiential tourism authorities in the premium travel market. It was launched in 2012 as an annual three and a half day luxury travel business exchange event with the aim to provide delegates inspirational ideas and create long term meaningful connections.

It’s more than a trade show. The event provides an exclusive, innovative global business exchange connecting experiential and discerning travel products directly to their market in a creative and inspirational exchange. It connects and nurtures relationships between highly sought-after luxury experiences and agents who influence the travel decision among the world’s top-end travellers. The only forum of its kind, Luxperience helps to identify and drive trends in the luxury and experiential travel sector, and in turn attracts highly desirable, difficult to reach clients. True to its name, it’s not just a trade show; it’s an immersive luxurious experience, driven by a highly experienced team, resulting in real business for its clients.

In its sixth year, the event once again proved to be one adored with success stories. It was held in Sydney from 1-20 Sep at the Dolton House, Australian Technology Park.

The event theme focussed on transformation whether on a personal or professional level and this was reflected in every aspect from the chosen Thought Leaders program to various discussions and meetings.

There were more than 10,000 meetings connecting the 300 exhibitors with over 400 elite local and international buyers and meeting organisers along with key media.  A dazzling array of high end travel products and experiences from across the globe were on display in a convivial and relaxed atmosphere.

There was a strong contingent of exhibitors and buyers from India under the banner of Incredible India. In addition to India Tourism, Air India and Taj Hotels, some of the other exhibitors from India were IBEX Expeditions, Indian Holidays, Target Tours, Incentive Destinations, Magadh Travels & Tours, Discoveries India and Inspiration India. “It’s a meaningful event in the high-end market to participate”, said Kanchan K Kukreja Head of India Tourism in Australia

“Our targeted approach to all invitees of the exhibition ensures it maintains quality of not only products but also participants, safeguarding its mandate of inspiring meaningful connections,” says Michelle Papas, Luxury Brand Strategist at Luxperience. “This strong ethos will continue for Luxperience 2018 and beyond.”

However just after the event, it was announced that Luxperience founder Helen Logas has sold the renowned luxury travel trade forum to US owned company Diversified Communications Australia. The new owners have said that next year’s event will go ahead in Sydney as scheduled from 16 to 19 September 2018
