Leaders of Luxury

November 16, 2021Andaz London, Liverpool Street

Event Details

Leaders of Luxury is Aspire’s flagship event, bringing together a minimum of 250 of the most senior people in luxury travel for a day-long conference aiming to inspire and educate. The event is invitation-only with the Aspire editorial team handpicking the audience. This year it will be held on November 16 at Andaz London.

Leaders of Luxury is always a hugely popular event, and every year we’ve had a waiting list of those hoping to attend. As the name suggests, people can only come if they are senior or a leader at their respective business. We invite owners, CEOS, COOs, MDs, director of sales and director of marketing level employees - it’s important to the Aspire team that everyone in attendance is senior in their field and a decision maker who can return to their businesses and implement something they have learnt at the event or utilise a new business contact they have met. All travel agents invited are senior in their company, if not the owner themselves.

The conference focusses on the key themes and topics of luxury travel, addressing opportunities and challenges the industry faces. The event has become renowned for the quality of speakers we secure. Over the years these have included Abercrombie & Kent founder Geoffrey Kent, the bosses of brands such as Six Senses, Belmond, Anantara and Rosewood; and speakers from outside of the travel arena including the president and CEO of Molton Brown, the customer experience director of John Lewis and adventurer Levison Wood.

The format

The day starts with networking from 9am, with the content commencing at 10am. The day is focussed on themes and trends in luxury travel and as such it is divided into a series of at least five sessions. We have two tea and coffee breaks to ensure networking is possible, and we also have a hosted lunch break which is also an opportunity to mingle with fellow industry leaders.

Leaders of Luxury always attracts a lot of interest from potential sponsors, and as such this year is already incredibly well sold. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact mary.rega@travelweekly.co.uk.
