Connections Luxury Europe to host third edition with Catalan Tourist Board

Travel industry events specialist Connections Luxury will hold the third edition of its Connections Luxury Europe event in partnership with the Catalan Tourist Board in April 2025.

The 2025 event will take place on April 6-9 and was confirmed after the completion of the 2024 event in April.

The second edition took place in Costa Brava and featured more than 2,100 meetings for representatives of more than 200 luxury travel brands, agencies and suppliers selected from the Connections Luxury Community.

The event included attendees from across Europe, North America and global markets, and used the ‘Connections Way’ format of combining business meetings with authentic local experiences.

Following the main event, a select number of buyers were invited to join one of four exclusive fam trips across Costa Brava and Barcelona.

Narcís Ferrer, director of the Catalan Tourist Board, said: “Without a doubt, Connections Luxury Europe is an opportunity for us to position premium travel as a key driver for tourism in Catalonia.

“It has been a real pleasure to host the event in the diverse and rich territory of Costa Brava, and we want to continue showing what Catalonia can offer across our culture, our gastronomy and our landscapes.

“I look forward to our continued partnership with Connections Luxury in 2025.”

Greg Reeves, managing director of Connections Luxury, added: “We’re absolutely delighted with our partnership with the Catalan Tourist Board, the Board of Tourism Costa Brava Girona and the Barcelona Tourism Board.

“Catalonia harnesses the true essence of luxury, which is deeply rooted in experience, culture and incredible topography, allowing travellers to experience magnificent vineyards, beautiful beaches and coves, spectacular hiking and skiing.

“It’s truly a region that has it all. We’re incredibly proud of our partnership and shared values and look forward to continuing events in Catalonia long into the future.”

Duncan Horton, group chief executive of Connections Luxury parent company Jacobs Media, said: “I am so proud of the impact Connections has had on the luxury travel sector over the last decade, pioneering the Connections Way, a new and unique method of facilitating long-lasting business partnerships through shared experiences.

“We look forward to further expanding our community of luxury travel professionals around the world, with plans to launch in new regions and destinations, and drive collaboration and advancements in the premium travel industry globally.”
