Royal Caribbean will be a first-time exhibitor at Luxpo as it launches Suite Class
Taking place on September 8 at The Montcalm hotel in London, the event connects travel sellers with suppliers in the luxury sector, in a one-to-one meetings format.
Created by ttgluxury, this is the third in the series of Luxpo events and a new participant is Royal Caribbean, which will be talking to agents about its Suite Class product.
Launched in August, Royal Suite Class is to be introduced on Oasis Class (Oasis, Allure and Harmony) and Quantum Class (Quantum, Anthem and Ovation) ships from spring 2016.
Stuart Leven, managing director UK and Ireland for Royal Caribbean International, said: “We are excited to be partnering with Luxpo, as it is the ideal environment for us to introduce our new Royal Suite Class to the luxury travel industry and reach discerning travellers who haven’t yet realised how premium our suites offering is.”
Other cruise lines joining Luxpo for the first time include Oceania Cruises which will participate along with repeat lines Celebrity Cruises and Silversea.
Also participating for the first time will be Velas Resorts, as it seeks to position its portfolio of four all-inclusive high-end Mexican resorts in the UK market.

New tourist boards taking part in Luxpo meetings with agents will be Los Cabos, Bermuda and Antigua and Barbuda, joining overall event co-sponsor Gran Canaria.
Also involved for the first time will be BAC Sport, Oman Air, review and feedback firm Feefo and Caribbean hotel representation company Essential Detail.
One&Only will be returning to the event, as will ITC Luxury Travel Group, Highlife Marketing and 3Sixty Luxury Marketing.
Editor of ttgluxury April Hutchinson said: “I’m delighted we have secured such a great range of suppliers, all keen to meet with agents in this dedicated format that allows them to discuss what matters to them, rather than taking a mass approach. Luxpo teamed with the inspiring and informative speakers and panelists we have lined up for the afternoon ttgluxury Seminar all contribute to making this an unmissable day.”
Luxpo takes place in the morning of September 8, followed by the annual ttgluxury Seminar in the afternoon.
Limited tickets for the conference, which costs £99 (+VAT) are still available at ttgluxury.com/seminar
