ILTM Asia (International Luxury Travel Market) is where the agents and designers of luxury travel from across Asia gather to plan the luxury travel itineraries for their high-net worth clients in 2014 – from Australia to Japan, South Korea to India, Indonesia to China – over 500 in total from 20 countries across the region.
June 3-6 I will be in Shanghai as an Ambassador for this exciting luxury travel conference and marketplace. I will be staying at the gorgeous Portman Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Shanghai and will be meeting with several of the top luxury hotel brands and luxury vendors in the Asia-Pacific region. I am very much looking forward to this and also to returning to Shanghai for the first time since 2008.
My last trip to Shanghai was a lot of fun but far too short, only two days. I recall Shanghai being one of the most visually stimulating cities I’ve seen and right up there, in terms of skyline, with New York and Hong Kong. I am looking forward to revisiting, seeing what has changed and seeing Shanghai in a much more luxurious manner. I will also be doing a broadcast for FOX News live via Skype from Shanghai. It will be fun!
After ILTM Asia, my next stop will ILTM Americas in Mexico at the end of September to see how North American and those from the emerging Latin America’s travel patterns will differ – Africa or Asia, safari or resort, adventure or gastronomy, culture or contemporary etc. Should be interesting!
