Luxperience’s packed lineup is here

Come one, come all, because we’ve got even more exciting news on this years fast-approaching Luxperience!

With a new location and a big finalist announcement recently, everyone’s getting excited for Luxperience 2017 – which is only a few short days away!

The Thought Leaders Forum will kick off the event at the Hilton Sydney hotel on Sunday 17 September – and has a pretty killer lineup.

There will be keynote presentations and a series of panels, all of which are sure to educate and inspire you.

This year’s highlight is set to be the keynote presentation by husband and wife – and extreme sports athletes – Glenn and Heather Singleman, known for their fearless escapades over chasms, mountain ranges and urban landscapes.

Glenn and Heather will talk about the benefits of positive attitude and courage in life and business.

The Thought Leaders Forum will also present a program including leading Instagrammer Lauren Bath talking on the huge benefits Instagram can have for businesses.

Lauren amplified her passion for photography and travel through social media, and now travels the world visually and verbally showcasing it to her over 450,000 followers. Pretty impressive, huh?

There will also be two panel sessions on the stacked lineup. One session will be led by Tourism Australia on how to successfully work collaboratively and the other will introduce a panel of China market specialists highlighting the innovations in this growing luxury travel market, which can influence other tourism markets.

A broad variety of topics will be covered in the forum, including adrenalin pumping adventure, kick ass communication tips, the power of collective marketing and the significant influence China has in digital transactions and travel.

Tim ‘Rosso’ Ross (pictured above) is returning from last years Luxperience to host the Forum – and invite everyone to join the official welcome cocktail party afterwards.

The upskilling and personal development opportunities will continue with the business seminars, which return this year during the Luxperience exhibition.

On Monday 18 September, the collaborative angle will be extended with integrated business solutions expert Giovanna Lever, founder of the Sparrowly Group, talking on the perception of sincerity.

On Tuesday 19 September, Yvonne Yeoh, CEO of ytd Pty Ltd and representing high end brands Tod’s and Vera Wang Bride in Australia, will impart her extensive experience on marketing and brand management for luxury products.

Luxperience is being held at the Doltone House Australian Technology Park, Sydney from 17 to 20 September 2017 – and if that line-up hasn’t convinced you to grab some tickets, nothing will.

“We’re all getting robbed”: Vic tourism hit by scam

by Hannah Edensor

At least nine Victorian tourist attractions have been hit by a credit card scam. We too were busted for buying clothes under our boss’s name but only to avoid buyers shame in the office.

What can you actually take from hotel rooms?

We could tell you this was an exclusive insight into what you can get away with stealing from hotels, but we’d be lying. We nicked it off an online forum.

Cruising for young travellers is finally here

This first of its kind cruise brand had us at ‘Wine & Paint Classes’ because it combines two of our favourite things. Well, one, we hate painting.

52% of travellers swayed by Facebook photos: study

All of our Facebook friends’ photos inspired us to travel. And by ‘friends’ we mean the public profiles we stalk because we only have 4 friends.

Is your boss the Executive of the Year?

We tried to nominate ourselves for this award, but apparently ignoring the boss and pretending to be your own boss doesn’t actually make you CEO.

If you read one thing today make sure it’s Travel Weekly’s hotel wrap. Actually, your medication instructions and train timetable probably take priority.
