Luxperience adds an exclusive Corporate Connect program to the agenda this year for busy corporate and MICE trade buyers.

Thursday 28 Aug 2014

SYDNEY August 2014: In recognition of the fact that corporate event organisers and MICE trade buyers are extremely time-poor, Luxperience has introduced a condensed program just for them.

The Corporate Connect Program allows corporate executive assistants and personal assistants a period of time on the floor to meet with exhibitors at this exclusive, closed event.

The program commences with a hosted lunch on Wednesday where delegates will learn about the latest trends in luxury and experiential travel from keynote speakers including Emma Scott from premium lifestyle creative agency Tiny Hunter, Harris Meitanus from Apples and Pears entertainment agency and Anne Biging from Healing Hotels.

Speakers will discuss ways of creating truly unique company incentives and experience: the new luxury and understanding the luxury consumer; their needs, desires and the fears and frustrations.

Emma Scott will talk about the influence of the arts in the luxury experience and how to create bespoke experiences that open up the world of the type of creativity that evokes an emotional response.

In an era where the excesses of wealth can often be portrayed as tacky and gaudy, it may be time to look at luxury through a different lens. Anne Biging of Healing Hotels will talk about simplifying the complexities of modern life and creating time and space; the ultimate luxury.

In a world where speed rules and everyone is under pressure to go faster, where almost everyone complains about the hectic pace of their lives, Anne will share her insights on creating experiences that nurture the soul.

“This is a first for Luxperience. We have listened to our delegates needs and for the first time decided to add an exclusive event for our corporate buyers;” said Luxperience CEO, Lindy Andrews.

“This closed event offers corporate buyers to meet with a large group of global exhibitors, most of whom do not visit Australia regularly, if ever.

“We’re doing this to provide our exhibitors with even more exposure to key buyers at an intimate business exchange, and to provide our time-poor local corporate buyers a more intensive business opportunity.

“This opportunity is not made available to corporate buyers at any other tourism exchange or travel trade event. This is a first.”
