Virtuoso Travel Week Tours Australia & NZ in 2016
Australian and New Zealand based Virtuoso advisors will be meeting with over a 100 of the network’s top Preferred Partners including hotels, cruise lines, and destinations in a series of meetings to be held regionally throughout 2016. The events will take place in Auckland, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and the Gold Coast.
The 2016 program has expanded and will feature 50% more partner meetings than last year, facilitating more than 12,500 individual meetings over the course of the multi-city tours.
“Virtuoso Travel Week City Tours are an exclusive networking opportunity for Virtuoso advisors and provides them unparalleled access to develop knowledge and relationships with the best suppliers in the luxury market,” Virtuoso Asia Pacific Managing Director, Michael Londregan said today
“This luxury market is dynamic and products and experiences are constantly evolving so our city tour program ensures Virtuoso advisors stay well ahead of general market knowledge and have both up to date insights and key contacts – a critical advantage that translates into better service for their clients.
“Our Asia Pacific city tours are the logical extension to the highly successful international luxury showcase, Virtuoso Travel Week, held in Las Vegas each August.”
The Virtuoso City Tours, to be held in Australia and New Zealand, bring key international luxury products to local Virtuoso advisors with the first two events already sold out.
“The popularity of these events is a real sign that international product suppliers see Australia as a strongly growing market, and our members provide a great connection to high net worth travellers in Australia.”
Mr Londregan said a change in format moves forward from previous Virtuoso Member/Partner ‘Regional Roadshow’ meetings and will unify the international roadshow calendar under the one ‘Virtuoso Travel Week’ banner.
“There will be more than 70 tours worldwide, including three in our region and, for the first time, meetings will take place in New Zealand, recognising their recent growth in new members.
In another change to the format, the meetings will take place under the themes of Hotels, Destinations & Experiences and Cruise, a response to the ongoing segmentation of the luxury portfolio.
