Aspire's Leaders of Luxury conference will return to Bafta in June

Aspire’s flagship conference Leaders of Luxury will return this summer with a raft of insightful speakers set to take the stage.

The event will once again be held at Bafta in London’s Piccadilly on June 14, in partnership with headline sponsor Explora Journeys.

Launched in 2017, Leaders of Luxury addresses the key influences shaping high-end travel and the wider luxury sector. The event brings together more than 250 of the most influential people in the industry.

Each year, Leaders of Luxury looks at the key trends and developments in the luxury travel space, while also inviting speakers from outside the sector to share their knowledge and expertise. This year’s event will take a deep dive into the world of marketing, with a particular focus on the influencer community’s role within travel. The pioneering spirit of luxury travel
brands who put new destinations on the map will also be discussed, alongside sustainability and responsible tourism and privacy and exclusivity.

Speakers confirmed so far include:

Craig Jeffs, regional director of sales and marketing for the UK and Ireland, Kerzner International
Linden Coppell, director of sustainability, Explora Journeys
Natasha Towey, managing director, Carrier

Paul Cleary, chief executive and owner, Caribtours
