ILTM Asia Pacific 2023 brings together the luxury travel industry in the region for four days of meetings and networking

This week, ILTM Asia Pacific celebrated its most successful event since 2019 in Singapore, welcoming 500 luxury travel suppliers from across the globe to meet with 500 accredited regional agents representing their high-net worth clients across 25 countries in the region, including Australia, Brunei, Indonesia, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Kyrgyzstan, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, and Vietnam. There were over 28,000 business-generating appointments, and a genuine sense of optimism permeated the week.

ILTM Portfolio Director Alison Gilmore commented on the event’s success, stating, “At each ILTM event, we bring together our community to not only develop connections, but also to celebrate the constantly evolving luxury travel industry. Throughout the week, travel suppliers and consumers forged new relationships inside and outside the official venue of ILTM Asia Pacific in Singapore, Marina Sands.

Over fifty influential media from across the region and the globe were also present, and many of these editors, along with the buyers and exhibitors, commented on the event’s energy and vitality.

Space Perspective’s Edita Teper remarked, “We have met with incredibly engaged and affluent agents whose clients are seeking transformational experiences, which Space Perspective undoubtedly offers. Following this first ILTM Asia Pacific experience, we are confident that we will confirm a large number of trips to the border of space, in addition to gaining significant brand awareness.”

Crystal Cruises’ Tony Archbold stated, “ILTM Asia Pacific is the best occasion to meet the most qualified agents who will introduce Crystal to the regional market. Incredible enthusiasm and interest have been demonstrated. Crystal is of Asian descent, so this forum is ideal for us.”

Preferred Hotels’ Rick Stiffler stated, “This is a fantastic market for Preferred. And ILTM is the perfect venue for us to connect with such a large number of exceptional agents from the region. Overall, a tremendous prospect for our brand and hotels.”

Standard Hotels’ Ollie Palmer stated, “With upcoming openings in Melbourne and Singapore, we are concentrating on raising awareness throughout Asia, particularly in Australia. In addition to reconnecting with so many excellent agents at ILTM Asia Pacific, we’ve also met nearly 70% new contacts – it’s exciting to be a part of the new business opportunities presented by the event’s continued growth.”

Greta Defoe of the Town Hall Hotel in London stated, “This is my first ILTM Asia Pacific, and I’ve already received a number of very positive inquiries and reservations before the first day! It is a pleasure to meet so many proactive and effective agents at ILTM in Singapore.”

Henny Fraser of ANI Private Resorts stated, “This has been a remarkable week at our first ILTM Asia Pacific. From the early morning dialogues to the networking events in the evenings, it is evident that the travel agents curated for us here are eager for knowledge and discovery. It is the ideal platform for us to reach so many pertinent new high-end travel curators.”
