#lux2016 is a celebration
Monday 22 Aug 2016
As we mark our fifth anniversary in 2016, it seems only fitting that the theme for Luxperience this year is Celebrate. Celebration and travel are intrinsically linked. They both bring people together, commemorate important milestones and reward hard work.
Over the years here at Luxperience we’ve been watching the changing trends towards destinations, venues and experiences. It is interesting to see how the changes in travel have been closely mirrored by the changes in celebrations. Event planners, or even individuals hosting their own event, are looking for unique venues, incredible food, impeccable service and one-of-a-kind experiences to mark their special occasion. And the trend shows no sign of slowing down. According to Samantha Feliciano, director of The Venue Concierge and Events by Luxperience ambassador, “The demands for the industry to stay innovative, changing, unique and on trend will only get stronger.”
One of the most popular celebration trends we’ve identified in recent years is the rise of multi-generational travel. Families now use travel as a chance to come together and celebrate an important milestone, like a birthday, graduation or wedding anniversary. These groups are no longer restricted to all-inclusive resorts or family friendly megaliners. Adventurous families are now taking camping safaris through Africa, river cruises through southeast Asia or cycling tours through Europe.
All our exhibitors at Luxperience 2016 will be showcasing their unique celebrate-themed offerings, bringing the best new ideas for leisure and corporate travel to the show floor. Plus we will be hosting our very own celebrations all through the show!
