The Luxperience business exchange event will be held from 10-12 September 2012 in Sydney at the Overseas Passenger Terminal.
The business exchange event was initially scheduled to be held in Melbourne between September 2-5 2012 at the Crown Entertainment complex.
The announcement coincides with the signing of Virgin Australia as a major event partner.
“We are thrilled to stage the first ever Luxperience event in Sydney and to have Virgin Australia on-board as our official airline partner. This global alliance is particularly important to us. There is much synergy between our brands and we look forward to supporting Virgin’s operations in Australia as well as their global vision of developing key strategic partnerships to enhance their virtual network, ” said Rosemarie Sama, CEO and founder of Luxperience.
The brainchild and founder, Rosemarie Sama has created Luxperience along with a team of travel professionals with a wealth of business savvy and expertise.
“With Sydney recently being voted the world’s number one city in the Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Award 2011 and Tourism Australia’s campaign theme for 2012 tipped to focus on Australian luxury experiences, we are extremely confident that the very first Luxperience will provide a unique commercial platform for international travel operators and industry. The reaction from the market has been outstanding with Hayman and Mulpha Hotels Australia along with Ahura Resorts Fiji–Likuliku Lagoon Resort becoming two of the first to secure the opportunity to leverage a growing global demand in luxury travel experiences.”
