Next week, the Australia Technology Park will house exhibitors and buyers at the start of the business component of luxury and experiential travel trade exhibition Luxperience, which coordinates more than 30,000 meetings across the 3.5 day event.
The opening event is the Thought Leaders Forum and Welcome Cocktail Party kicking off Luxperience 2015 at the Sydney Town Hall on Sunday, 06 September. Respected journalist, author, columnist, news presenter, blogger and mother Jacinta Tynan (pictured) will be the master of ceremonies.
Ms Tynan is introducing a galaxy of keynote speakers from Anouche Newman, the customer experiences expert from the Customer Service Institute of Australia and award-winning cinematographer Corey Baudinette from LUXHD, to Dr Matthew McDougall, CEO of Digital Jungle, the digital marketing expert advising organisations on how to the work through and succeed in the often perplexing social media platforms
There will be a panel discussion on the paradoxical perceptions of high cost events. Is there a backlash on this perceived overt consumerism in events and incentives? And is this perception of materialism stifling innovation in events? On the panel will be luminaries of the meetings and conventions arena: Anne Candy, from Signature by Anne Candy; Renita Collins, from Directions, and Melissa Bajugi, from Sydney Town Hall.
Also presented at the Thought Leaders event will be the initial findings of the latest trends, opportunities and challenges facing the luxury travel industry uncovered in the research initiated by Luxperience with market research specialists MyTravelResearch.com.
Everyone attending Luxperience will be given access to their own travel itinerary and appointment schedule through the LUXE Concierge App, along with access to LUXE’s insightful, comprehensive yet playful guide to Sydney including maps and up-to-the-minute recommendations.
