New Zealand tourism operators taking part in TRENZ 2018 (7-10 May, Dunedin) will acquire helpful insider insight into the minds of luxury American travelers and the way to attract these high-value visitors.
The Luxury Travel Trends presentation by a board of writers for important US publications is part of the TRENZ 2018 Lunch Speaker Series, which is particularly intended to add significance to more than 300 New Zealand tourism businesses which will participate in TRENZ, the crucial international business-to-business event on the $36 billion tourism industry’s annual calendar.
US luxury travel trends panelists comprise Laura Schreffler, Executive Editor of Haute Living, one of the foremost networks of luxury lifestyle publications. She is joined by Lilit Marcus, Editor of CNN Travel, and Charu Suri, a freelance travel journalist who has composed hundreds of articles from different publications of The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and CNN to Conde Nast Traveler, Architectural Digest, Coastal Living, Hemispheres, and Food & Wine.
“The Lunch Speaker Series will feature stimulating and informative presentations on a range of relevant topics,” says Chris Roberts, Chief Executive for Tourism Industry Aotearoa which manages TRENZ.
“TIA is delighted with the support TRENZ partner Tourism New Zealand is providing in attracting such high calibre international presenters to this panel.”
Stephen England-Hall, Tourism New Zealand’s Chief Executive, says “It’s great to be able to offer the New Zealand industry the chance to hear more about how they can appeal to and meet the needs of the premium traveller from the USA.
“Attracting people who have the ability to travel anywhere in the world is very competitive. Information about the luxury traveller and what they are looking for is extremely valuable for the industry to help them attract and appeal to this market.”
