New York, NY (Nov. 5, 2018) — Travel Leaders Group gathered its luxury brands together for two successful “Elevate the Journey” trade shows – held on the West Coast on Oct. 24th and on the East Coast on Oct. 30. Now in their second year, the shows are the largest trade shows held by any luxury agency group. Both shows were booked to capacity with waiting lists of suppliers interested in presenting.

Travel Leaders Group’s luxury brands include ALTOUR, Andrew Harper Travel, Protravel International and Tzell Travel, which together represent the largest buying force of luxury travel in North America.

In Beverly Hills, the show had 185 suppliers attending and 255 travel advisors. In New York, the show had more than 275 suppliers and more than 360 advisors.

“Travel Leaders Group luxury advisors are the most well-educated in the business and these types of events are essential to their knowledge of top properties and providers around the world,” said Travel Leaders Group Chief Executive Officer Ninan Chacko, CTC.

“We were pleased to once again connect more than 600 of our luxury travel advisors, who offer the highest level of care to their clients and who represent a powerful force in the travel industry, with our supplier partners who represent the world’s most exquisite properties, experiences and airlines at this beautiful trade show event.”

These shows allow Travel Leaders Group luxury brand advisors to connect with supplier partners to learn all that is new before the start of the new year.

“Suppliers are making major investments in their products, introducing new hotels, new aircraft, new cruise ships and they need our advisors to be their ambassadors and represent their brands to the traveling consumer,” says Chacko. “Travel Leaders Group luxury travel advisors play an integral role in the success of these properties and experiences around the world and as such, their interests and opinions are valuable in setting trends in the marketplace.”

The trade shows were elegant events featuring passed hor d’oeuvres, buffet dinner, open bar and giveaways from airlines, hotels and tour operators including round trip international flights and complimentary nights at luxury properties around the world.
