THE organisers of International Luxury Travel Market (ILTM) have continued to expand their portfolio of shows across the globe – but Australia is unlikely to be added to the map at this stage.
Reed Exhibitions’ ILTM portfolio director Alison Gilmore is in Sydney this week to showcase upcoming ILTM events which are scheduled for Cape Town, Dubai, Sao Paulo, Singapore, Mexico, Shanghai and the flagship in Cannes.
In each case global exhibitors represent their wares to local buyers, with the Asia-Pacific event in Singapore also now incorporating ILTM Japan.
In Australia, however, Gilmore said the dominance of Luxperience – now owned by Diversified Communications (TD 04 Oct 2017) – means there isn’t room for another similar show.
Gilmore is pictured in Sydney yesterday with local ILTM representative Lynne Ireland from Inspired Luxury.
