Connect Luxury is a bespoke program targeting those who plan luxury meetings, travel, incentives, experiential and gifting/goods for the global business events industry.
Connect brings together the most active planners, suppliers and experts across a dozen meetings and events industry markets. Attendees at our conferences gain crucial experience to advance their careers and business through professional development and meetings excellence—all while networking and socializing with other industry colleagues. This new program will focus on the modern iterations of luxury including wellness, mindfulness, active lifestyle, sustainability, socially conscious travel and authentic experiences. We believe that thoughtfully curated segmentation will create a more intimate, relationship-focused event. That means, we want meeting planners to spend time with the right people with a truly customized itinerary. Do not expect a traditional gathering where your agenda is jam packed. Connect Luxury is focused on nurturing relationships and we want you to handpick your experiences and agenda based on your own personal speed.
Connect is busy crafting something special for each meeting planner and the groups they represent through the following segments for you:
A distinctive portfolio of properties offering quality service for meetings and conventions. Minimum of 200 guest rooms and/or suites, at least 50,000 sq. ft. of meeting space.
