Held in partnership with Celebrity Cruises, the conference will feature a mix of trend-spotting intelligence, insightful panels and inspirational speakers.

Other new confirmed speakers include Patrick McCrae, founder of ARTIQ, who will explore the role of art in hotels, and the power of creativity in our workplaces as we face the new way of office/hybrid working.

  • Jason Oshiokpekhai, managing director of Global Travel Collection
  • Jenny Southan, journalist, trend forecaster and founder of Globetrender
  • Cat Jones, founder, Byway
  • Mark Duguid, managing director, Carrier

  • Lisa Fitzell, managing director, Elegant Resorts

“We are putting together an agenda that will provide inspiration, insight and ideas that can help luxury travel businesses retain their place in the life of the luxury traveller,” said TTG Luxury editor April Hutchinson.

 

“We often hear the luxury sector recovers first after a crisis, and while we know there is still a long way to go, I feel the green shoots are poking through. The conference will be a well-timed event at which to come together, share experiences, support each other and learn about the opportunities sure to emerge as affluent travellers get on the move again. In my years in travel, there’s never felt like such a more important event for the luxury sector to come together again.”

 

Delegates will be welcomed for coffee first thing, with a full day of content starting from 9.30, and plenty of other networking opportunities over further breaks and lunch.

 

Early bird tickets for £149 will be available until 17 September, and after that time, will cost £199. A 10% discount is also available for TTG+ members to attend.
