International Luxury Travel Market
Tuesday, December 4th, 2012
Luxury has been part of the human history and society since people have lived in the courts where it was the mark of a noble birth. Then it has evolved, for instance, from expressing aristocrats’ beauty to the point in which it was synonymous with no exuberance as in the Coco Chanel’s “Poor Look” or in the minimal trend of the early ‘90s. How is it going to transform now thatluxury travel has become an increasingly important lifestyle choice? What is going to happen now that many luxury products are available also in the developing countries? These and many others questions will be answered during ILTM, the annual ‘invitation-only’ event for the world of global luxury travel, taking place from December 3rd to 6th in Cannes, where a high profile panel of international professionals will take part into debates, interviews and scheduled meetings. Mr P.R.S. Oberoi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Oberoi Group will share its success story, his involvement in developing hotels that reflect their local environment and will reveal his ethos for the Oberoi brand as well as his predictions for the future of luxury travel.
