South American tour operators and travel companies will be chasing Australia's affluent travel market at this year's Luxperience event.

South American tour operators and travel companies will be chasing Australia’s affluent travel market at this year’s Luxperience event.


In just three weeks, leading luxury and experiential travel trade exhibition, Luxperience, is again opening its doors in Sydney, Australia to new venue, Australian Technology Park due to its increased size.

In its fourth year, the business exchange has fast become renowned for attracting the highest quality buyers and sellers of global travel experiences, and a number of high profile South American brands have signed up to exhibit at the event.

Among them are South American companies such as Incarail and Prom Peru, which increased its presence from one suite last year to seven suites in 2015.

This year, Prom Peru’s stand will feature the country’s finest travel experiences, including Sumaq Macchu Picchu Hotel and sustainable tourism provider Inkaterra.

LATAM Airlines Group is also returning to Luxperience 2015 with an enhanced partnership that will see the group carrying Latin American hosted buyers to Sydney, as well as exhibiting.

According to Luxperience Director of Sales and Partner Alliances, Eric Lewanavanua, the growth in South American exhibitors meets the increase in luxury and experiential travel to South America.


“This is an ideal time for suppliers to capitalise on this to maximise brand awareness, foster meaningful business relationships and drive sales.”
