Luxpo & ttgluxury seminar 2017

Luxpo

Luxpo was launched by ttgluxury in 2014 as an event designed to give agents the opportunity to meet with suppliers on a one-to-one basis, ensuring a chance to discuss what’s most relevant to you.

LUXPO-triptychJuly17.jpg

Attracting a great mix of accommodation, destinations, aviation, cruise and operators, Luxpo brings together a truly varied spectrum of products under one roof, so agents can benefit from a full afternoon of interesting meetings.

Agents

The one-to-one nature of the eight-minute ‘speed-dating’ meetings means agents can interact directly with suppliers on points that are specific to them, their agency and their clients, instead of a ‘roundtable’ group briefing.

 

Agents can discuss any upcoming bookings in confidence, be inspired by new products, learn more about popular luxury brands, arrange further training or meetings, discuss incentives and ensure they have the very best contacts they need to ensure clients’ trips go well.

 

Luxpo takes place in the afternoon of October 18 at the Kensington Roof Gardens in London and places are limited to 25 people, with agents handpicked by the ttgluxury team, but of course we do also welcome applications and the chance to grow the community. If you are an agent and want to be considered for a place at Luxpo, please contact April Hutchinson, editor, ttgluxury.

 

For a list of Luxpo companies you can meet with, please see below for all their profiles.

Suppliers

Luxpo allows you to have 25 productive meetings with agents, all picked for their capacity to operate in the luxury sphere. During each eight-minute meeting, you can update agents on your products and establish their needs.

 

Meeting so many great luxury agents in this personal way in this amount of time would otherwise be virtually impossible, representing great ROI for your sales team. Luxpo is almost fully booked now on the supplier side, but please contact Mark Reynolds, luxury sales manager, to discuss opportunities.
