New Ideas For Luxury Travel

Travel Edge Takes It To The Limit And Beyond

Travel Edge wrapped up its Limitless virtual luxury conference this past weekend, providing over 400 attendees with two days of “inspiration, education, and connectivity.”

Highlights included keynote addresses from Kyle Mabry, VP Global Sales at American Airlines, and Jane Burnell, Vice President Global Luxury Sales, Hilton Luxury Brands.

Destination spotlights were featured throughout, showcasing some of the finest resorts and experiences for clients, while the panel discussion moderated by Annie Fitzsimmons, Luxury Travel + Advisor Editor for AFAR, the three professional power sessions and organized roundtables provided interactive networking opportunities.

In addition to the compelling content and updates, guests were immersed with experiential moments, including a Captain-led ship tour, a walk-through of Quebec’s outstanding Ice Hotel, an “aloha” from a surf shack in Hawaii, and many more.

Michael Johnson, President of Travel Edge, said: “This Limitless was an amazing opportunity for our luxury travel advisors to come together as a community for support and inspiration.”

Johnson continued: “The world is beginning to re-prioritize travel, and keeping our advisors connected and informed is more important than ever. Being virtual has shown the importance creating compelling content that really engages and informs our advisors. And their feedback on this event was outstanding. We couldn’t be more proud.”

 

This Limitless event was presented on the innovative InEvent platform, which seamlessly enhanced engagement to build a connection between the advisors, partners, and sponsors in attendance. The conference’s recordings will be available on the platform for the rest of the year, providing advisors with the opportunity to re-visit the event’s highlights.

To add to the experience, sponsors gave away numerous luxury prizes to attendees, with some of the incredible highlights including a Caribbean Celebrity Cruise for two, 10 nights with Silversea Cruises, two roundtrip plane tickets aboard LATAM to South America, one seven-night European cruise for two with AmaWaterways, and an eight-day river cruise with Viking Cruises.

The exciting two days were brought to life with the help of Travel Edge’s sponsors and partners, who included: Hilton Luxury Brands, American Airlines, Viking Cruises, Backroads, Silversea Cruises, Travelex Insurance Services, Inc, AmaWaterways, LATAM Airlines, Belmond, Celebrity Cruises, Inc, Apple Leisure Group Vacations, PalmaÏa – The House of AÏA, Kensington Tours, Oceania Cruises, Delta Vacations, Marriott International Luxury Brands, Fairmont le Château Frontenac, Big Five Tours & Expeditions, Villas of Distinction, I.D.I.
