SINGAPORE, 13 March 2019: Now in its second year, ILTM Asia Pacific is gearing up to become a top regional show for the luxury travel industry.
Returning to Singapore, ILTM Asia Pacific will take place 27 to 30 May at Marina Bay Sands. The show is managed by Reed Exhibitions.
Approximately 550 luxury travel suppliers will form the guest list at ILTM Asia Pacific 2019, an Increase of around 10% year-on-year.
New exhibitors participating include Banwa Private Island in the Philippines, Makanyi Private Game Lodge in South Africa, Matetsi Victoria Falls in South Africa, Bahwah Reserve in Indonesia and the Ungasan Clifftop Resort in Bali.
They join returning exhibitors such as Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, Belmond, Kempinski Hotels, InterContinental Hotels, Four Seasons as well as destinations such as Switzerland, New Zealand, Botswana, Japan and Singapore.
Recent research by Allied Market Research highlights that Asia Pacific’s luxury travel market is showing the fastest international growth (estimated to have grown 10% in 2018) owing to the rise in the number of middle-income groups.
In addition, the latest Euromonitor report on ‘Megatrends Shaping the Future of Travel’, says domestic trips in particular are booming across the region, which is also driving the increase in average expenditure, which is expected to rise by 9%.
ILTM Asia Pacific will deliver new and returning planners and agents who will engage with suppliers to create more than 30,000 one-to-one meetings during the show.
Buyers come from Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan.
The participant programme this year will support the ILTM theme of Health and Wellness with morning ILTM bay runs and morning yoga in the host hotels.
