JOIN THE COLLECTIVE

LE is the world’s first travel trade event to reflect the shift in luxury.

Since we launched four years ago, LE has become a unique context for connection – bringing together the most rebellious design and lifestyle-led hotel and travel brands with both leisure and corporate buyers who focus solely on the next generation of creative class traveller. Are you a Rebel With Cause?

  • SEXY

    Whether they take the form of opulent, maximalist mansions; shabby-chic urban hangouts; super sleek private jets; or many more besides, LE  exhibitors seek to be inventive, inspiring and utterly unique in their design, pushing their point of view and creativity to the max.

  • INNOVATIVE

    From imagining novel ways of experiencing a destination to forging entirely new takes on high-end travel, every LE exhibitor strives to shatter the status quo and go beyond expectations with innovations both large and small.

  • RESPONSIVE

    Today’s generation is the fastest evolving in history, responsible for redefining the way we work, live and think about luxury. LE exhibitors understand this fast-paced mindset and respond by developing creative communications that resonate with this future-focused consumer.

WHY YOU NEED TO GET ON THE GUEST LIST

Put simply, LE is the most dynamic, bespoke and targeted travel trade event out there.

We understand that today’s travellers are defined by psychographics, not demographics. Consequently we are the only event to qualify our buyers by mindset, not market sector or geographic region. Our team dedicate a great deal of time to uncovering our exhibitors’ business mix so that our global leisure, corporate and entertainment buyers reflect your business needs, not our targets.

BUYERS PURCHASE LEISURE TRAVEL PRODUCT

BUYERS PURCHASE CORPORATE TRAVEL PRODUCT

BUYERS PURCHASE ENTERTAINMENT TRAVEL PRODUCT

BUYERS DO NOT ATTEND OTHER SHOWS

BUYERS NEW TO OUR EXHIBITORS’ MARKETS

BUYERS FROM EMERGING MARKETS

We know business is a love affair, not a one-night stand.

That’s why we optimise every opportunity for making, strengthening and reviving industry connections, from 20-minute meetings that build relationships with new contacts to lots of networking time to catch up with industry friends and several evening events to retain our collective spirit.

We understand that in today’s crowded marketplace, it’s all about context.

If you were a high-end fashion brand, would your store be uptown or downtown? At LE we know that our exhibitors work hard on curating the perfect limited edition context for their consumers, so we do exactly the same: building a marketplace where you can be inspired by industry (and wider) innovations and discuss ideas with your true contemporaries.

MINISTRY OF IDEAS

INSPIRING THE EVOLUTION OF TRAVEL

The Ministry of Ideas is the cradle of our annual festival of creativity within the travel industry. A twist on the conference concept, it was conceived as an ideas factory where pioneering individuals in the travel and creative sectors can share, discuss and spark innovations with the power to move the evolution in travel onwards.

Once you have been accepted to join our collective, our team will personally guide you through each stage of the exhibiting and appointment selection process in the months leading up to the show.
