Luxperience Awards Night

The awards night will be held at The Star.

The judges are in for a difficult time as there has already been a strong response to the Awards with some impressive submissions already received.

There are three awards for buyers and three for suppliers, under the themes of Inspiring, Meaningful and Connections.

The Inspiring Award recognises one buyer and one supplier that best demonstrates excellence in the planning and development of innovative products and services, acknowledging entrepreneurial vision, market leadership and uniqueness.

The Meaningful Award pays tribute to a buyer and a supplier that contributes to a greater understanding of history, heritage and culture, incorporating elements such as sense of community, experiential tourism or social responsibility within their program or product.

The Connections Award recognises a successful e-marketing campaign, both from the buyer and supplier sides, which effectively connects with key target markets within the luxury or high end experiential travel space.

In addition to these six awards, Luxperience will recognise a visionary tourism office which has influenced the development of luxury and experiential tourism within their country or region.

Winners will be announced in front of over 500 guests at the Luxperience Gala Dinner and Awards Evening, taking place on 8 September 2015 on the rooftop of The Star, Sydney.

The invitation-only business forum is the only one of its kind based in the Australasia and Pacific region that connects the world’s most exclusive travel providers dealing in luxury and experiential travel.
