An Update on ILTM Asia Pacific from ILTM’s Alison Gilmore
Over the past few months, we have been working behind the scenes to try to deliver the ILTM events that our industry and community really need and want.
While vaccine rollouts are going in the right direction towards travel’s recovery, it appears that July will still be too early for a safe in-person event of our size in Singapore. For this reason, we have made the decision to postpone ILTM Asia Pacific 2021 as a face-to-face gathering until 2022, and instead hold this year's event as a virtual edition: ILTM Asia Pacific Virtual online from July 20 to 22.
Designed to secure new business and enhance industry relationships, ILTM Asia Pacific Virtual will give buyers and suppliers access to one-to-one meetings, direct messaging and industry insights all on an easy to use platform. The Asia Pacific region still has the fastest-growing HNW population and is home to some of the world’s most prolific travellers who contribute over $363bn* to the luxury travel universe. This trend does not show any signs of stopping in 2021 and beyond as we continue to provide access to the region’s top agents for luxury travel, destinations and experiences.
While we are sorry for this postponement message, we cannot thank you enough for your continued support of ILTM. For those interested in joining the ILTM Asia Pacific Virtual event, please reach out to your region's relevant ILTM contact here.
Please stay tuned for more updates on our year ahead, and until then, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you (virtually) in July!

A 2021 Update from ILTM's Alison Gilmore
JANUARY 28, 2021 – LONDON, UK
We believe with all our hearts that our industry and its community will rebound stronger than ever and we will meet in person again soon. While no one can 100% predict when this first celebration will be, one thing we can say for certain is that everything we do this year will be with one focus in mind — generating business for you!
We are very confident that there will be ILTM events this year, including live ones — plans are already underway. That said, if circumstances intervene and international routes are closed, we will make sure we speak to you early and openly about any change of plans. We cannot compromise safety.*
For our earliest event, ILTM Asia Pacific, we will always have a backup plan to revert to digital, to keep business moving and those important one-to-one meetings taking place. For our events planned for later in the year—ILTM North America, ILTM Latin America, and ILTM Cannes—we have every intention to deliver a live face-to-face event for each market. If, however, we need to shift with the changing times, we will without question let you know.
The sands continue to shift under our feet, but there are many signs pointing towards a world rich with human contact and travel again. Stay tuned for more updates from us right here, in your inboxes and via our social media channels.
We’re ready to move fast to get you and us back to business!
