New Luxury Showcase Already Looks to 2013

Luxperience, a new, exclusive three-day business exchange for the high end experiential travel industry, has announced its dates in 2013, after an unprecedented success this year at Sydney's Overseas Passenger Terminal.

This year's event was opened by Roza Sage MP representing the Premier of New South Wales, and founder of Luxperience Rosemarie Sama, and included some of the most luxurious and indulgent resorts, cruise lines, lodges and tour operators in the industry.

Commenting on the show's mission, Rosemarie added: "Flat screen televisions in the rooms and several hundred thread count Egyptian cotton bed linen is no longer a luxury, it's a given. Luxury now is all about bespoke, unique adventures and experiences, the opportunity to see places and experience things that few others have - in a way that is not only comfortable and well yes "luxurious" but also authentic, inspiring and potentially life changing."

Over 100 suppliers and 300 buyers attended the show over three days of highly targeted appointments as well as spectacular and memorable events which showcase the best of what Sydney has to offer.

"The show has been very enjoyable and informative, and I've made some very good new contacts. The setting is really spectacular," said Lorrenzo Urra of Hong Kong-based experiential travel specialist Global Nomad.

"We are delighted by the feedback we've been getting, everyone seems very happy with the quality of the appointments they are having, the spectacular venue and the great networking events," said Rosemarie Sama. "Even the press briefing centre has the most incredible views of the Harbour."

With an increase in high net-worth experiential travellers from emerging markets in Asia and the rest of the world, Luxperience caters to an increasingly important niche within the travel industry addressing. With individuals looking for unique, bespoke and authentic once-in-a lifetime travel experiences, this type of event sees industry thought leaders and experts congregate to share and exchange ideas, share insights and establish meaningful connections.

The event will feature a stylish new format when it returns to Sydney on September 2-4, 2013. Conventional booths will be replaced with 'business class lounge' settings for buyers and sellers to meet in. “It will essentially have the look and feel of a very glamorous airport lounge, which as well as being more relaxed, will also enable a much more cost effective entry price to the show for suppliers. However they will still be able to have their branding on display and various upgrade package options will be available,” said Sama.
