Luxury travel partners including hoteliers, destination management companies, airlines, cruise lines and tour operators held face-to-face meetings with travel advisors.

Jason Oshiokpekhai (pictured), managing director of Internova’s luxury division Global Travel Collection UK, said: “We are so excited to host this event at our London office where we’ll welcome our advisers and the UK leadership team.

“It’s not often that our luxury travel advisors and luxury partners get to be in the same room to connect and discuss business for the year ahead.

“The knowledge they gain and the partnerships they forge will help them continue to provide the highest level of service to their UK travellers.”

Albert Herrera, executive vice president, partner relations, said: “Our New York City Select marketplace was a great success and we are looking forward to expanding the same opportunities for networking to our luxury travel advisors in the United Kingdom.

“Advisers and partners alike shared with us how much they appreciated the chance to connect in person.

“Events like these emphasise the importance of partnerships as we look to the future of luxury leisure travel.”
