It is wonderful recognition to the Luxperience team, who have worked hard for the past 12 months to produce the best, seamless Luxperience. In addition to my team, we could not have presented Luxperience without our dedicated sponsors and enthusiastic delegates.”This year Luxperience saw an increase of over 60 per cent of new buyers across all markets, enabling exhibitors to expand their selling base, which is always a positive result.The Signature Media team of Cathy Wagstaff, CEO/Group Editor and Tina-Louise Jackson, Managing Editor and Director of Partnerships, with Noelene Henderson (centre) of Enticing Asia.One of the hits was the Luxperience App. Now in its third year, it assists people navigate the exhibition, keep abreast of the program, receive updates and host their own itinerary and appointment schedule. It also enables delegates to connect with each other even after Luxperience and, new for this year, to rate their appointments.Another hit with delegates were the business sessions. Luxperience takes the innovation and education of the industry seriously. Its daily education program reflected this with the over-subscribed sessions on genuine sustainability, luxury market insights and business elegance conducted by highly sought-after experts.As always, sophisticated fun is never far away with Luxperience and its social events were a highlight of this year’s forum. Starting on Sunday evening with the Welcome to Sydney party, the prestigious Awards winners were announced and Dr Jordan Nguyen explained the benefits of artificial intelligence. Tuesday night saw delegates networking with the sparkling city, harbour lights as the backdrop, and devouring one of the best dessert bars ever seen. It concluded with its annual ‘It’s a Wrap’ party on Wednesday afternoon.“Now we are heading to our eighth year, we are already working on a bigger and better show for 2019,” Papas concluded.Lead image – the Luxury Market Insights Panel Discussion which included Douglas Nicol, Co-founder and Partner, The Works; Nicholas Gray – CEO, The Australian and Laura Jones, Managing Director, Frank PR, moderated by Tim Burrowes, Content Director, Mumbrella.Go back to the enewsletter “It was an invaluable opportunity for Four Season Hotels, and more specifically Four Seasons Hotel Macau, Cotai Strip, with some great introductions.”Cathy Favaloro, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.“I feel the show has matured and found its place. The organisers should be proud as the event ably competes on the international event stage. The location and ambience is amazing.”Helen George, The Honeymoon Boutique (buyer).“It’s been an excellent show. It’s been very beneficial not only for the Philippines on a macro level but also on a more micro level for the individual companies and properties.
