SYDNEY, Australia – Luxperience, the exclusive high-end experiential travel trade event opens to great fanfare on Monday as a sold-out success. All of the available exhibition space at Sydney’s Overseas Passenger Terminal where the event is to be held from September 10-12 has been snapped up by exhibitors.
At the same time, over 300 buyers will be in attendance, an unprecedently high ratio of 3 to 1 for suppliers to meet.
Rosemarie Sama, CEO and Co-founder of Luxperience, said: “We have seen a phenomenal take-up rate for the first Luxperience and are delighted that the first show is set to be such a success. All the feedback we have had has been tremendously positive, which is very encouraging.”
Thanks to the pre-arranged appointments system, as well as the opportunity for buyers and suppliers to reach out to each other via the LuxConnect online networking facility, over 60, equating to 75% of the exhibitors have entirely full pre-scheduled meeting itineraries.
“The cooperation and assistance we have received from the Luxperience team has been remarkable. Our queries have always been answered so quickly and efficiently, even on a Sunday! It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with the Luxperience team,” said exhibitor Peter Martin from Edenhouse.
“It’s a huge undertaking the team at Luxperience have set themselves in producing a show of this kind for our market. They have done so with professionalism, kindness, and generosity,” agreed exhibitor Svetlana Jovanovic of The Unique Tourism Collection.
