Shop for VIP travel at the Asian Luxury Travel Market

30 Apr 2008 by business traveller

A yen for the luxury lifestyle is sweeping through various Asian markets, and nowhere is it having the most impact than in China. Which makes it logical for a show focused on the high-end travel niche to happen there.

For the second time, the Asia Luxury Travel Market ( will be held in Shanghai from June 16 to 19 at the Shanghai Exhibition Center, following the success of its inaugural outing in June 2007.

Organised like a private club, the invitation-only event showcases leading luxury travel suppliers to full hosted VIP travel buyers. The number of buyers is expected to double this year. Unlike other trade shows, ALTM works on a pre-arranged appointment system, meaning discussions between the parties are organised prior to the show.

Asia-Pacific currently boasts 2.3 million high net worth individuals, which is equal to the US, accounting for over 50 percent of the consumption of the US$80 billion global luxury goods and services business.
