ILTM is the leading event for luxury travel where over 1,300 of the very finest high-end properties, most secluded destinations and desired experiences come to showcase what makes them the best in the industry. 

Like our VIP Buyers, our exhibitors go through a qualification process. Exhibitors must meet our luxury travel criteria before they are invited to exhibit at the show. Operating in this way ensures we can deliver you a first-class international selection of luxury travel products and services.


Being an ILTM VIP Buyer brings you face-to-face with those who can make your clients' experiences magical and unlike no other. Whether you're searching for culinary delights to awaken the senses, cultural discoveries to challenge the body and mind or a secret hideaway for ultimate relaxation, ILTM will give you the opportunity to meet one-to-one with 1,300 of the best providers in luxury travel from across the globe.
