About the Event

Connections is the global networking and event organiser exclusively serving senior leaders and experts in luxury, wellness and meetings. We bring handpicked leaders from the luxury travel industry together to do business and to discuss the trends and challenges facing the marketplace. Each event welcomes just 80 delegates (30-40 top buyers, 30-40 selected luxury suppliers and sponsors). Buyers are selected through extensive research and word of mouth recommendation together with existing partners and suppliers. They represent key and emerging luxury travel markets (including the US, Brazil etc) and reflect the region in which the event is located (for example, the inaugural event in Europe welcomed 50% of buyers from Europe and 50% from outside the region). The suppliers are only the best companies in luxury travel around the globe who are invited to participate; these include airlines, hotels, private jet and yacht charters, cruise lines and destinations.
