Who better to help kick off a luxury-themed travel industry event than the goddess of everything glamorous, stylish, heeled and accessorised – Sarah Jessica Parker.
SARAH JESSICA PARKER!
The actress, producer, designer and all-round gorgeous human left some 5,600 industry with their jaws on the ground when she walked out on stage at the annual Virtuoso Travel Week.
We weren’t there, but we imagine she strutted out in that confident yet humble way she does…
The annual gathering, described as the luxury travel equivalent to ‘Fashion Week’, kicked off in Las Vegas over the weekend in the luxurious Bellagio Hotel.
The ‘Sex & The City’ star took time out from launching her first stand alone shoe store in the hotel to welcome consultants and suppliers during the opening ceremony, along with international model, Rachel Hunter.
Virtuoso APAC Managing Director, Michael Londregan said it was no coincidence that the two fashion icons were putting their support behind the luxury travel industry.
“Everyone knows New York Fashion Week and what we are starting to see is the concept around luxury and lifestyle is also extending very much into travel.”
Michael Londregan, Virtuoso APAC Managing Director
“Virtuoso Travel Week is actually the fashion week for our industry and not only are the two concepts linked, they are starting to merge. That’s why Sarah Jessica Parker is addressing our audience, knowing the client of a Virtuoso advisor is exactly the kind of client she is trying to get into her new shoe shop.
“Luxury products are one segment that includes travel, shoes, cars etc it’s no surprise we are starting to see these luxury brands working collaboratively together.”
On a more local note, the Goldman Travel Group SHARED a stage with Sarah Jessica Parker!
The Group won BIG at the welcoming ceremony, where they were named ‘Top Virtuoso Travel Agency’ for a third year running.
Tom and Anthony Goldman were there to accept the award who later said in a Facebook post that they were “proud of our teams at Goldman Travel, Travelcall, Travel Phase ,SmartFlyer Australia & Quintessentially Travel”.
Congratulations Goldman Travel!
