Event organiser Connections to become ‘high-end travel community’
London-based travel industry event organiser Connections is to develop its approach in 2020 by creating an ‘invitation-only international private community’ for senior executives in the high-end sector.
Connections was launched in 2014 and has since held more than 30 events around the world with a focus on the luxury, meetings & incentives, wellbeing, adventure and weddings sectors.
From 2020, it will become a private community for invited travel buyers and sellers, offering members the chance to interact at its signature events, online and via social media in a year-round programme.
Micaela Giacobbe, founder of Connections, said: “During our relatively short history, Connections delegates have held meetings on the edge of a volcanic crater in Ecuador, test-driven supercars in the UK and dined at the world’s longest table in India, and this is only the beginning of our innovative approach.
“The success of our pioneering formula has driven our decision to evolve; it is a natural step for our business leaders who will now be able to communicate and develop their personal and commercial relationships on a day-to-day basis in an inclusive private community with access to exclusive product.”
Connections is part of London-based Jacobs Media Group alongside brands including Travel Weekly and The Caterer and works in partnership with a range of the industry’s leading associations and companies.
The private community will come into effect from January 2, 2020, with selected existing Connections partners invited to join before additional brands are added over the following 12 months and beyond.
