Questex Brought Luxury Advisors and Suppliers Together at Luxury Travel Advisor’s ULTRA Summit

The Luxury Travel Advisor’s State of the Industry Finds Luxury Travel is Focused on Family-Oriented Travel and Personal Health

NEW YORK, July 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Questex’s Luxury Travel Advisor’s ULTRA Summit, the premier, hosted buyer event in the luxury travel space, successfully took place July 24-26 at the Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa in Manalapan, FL.

The invitation only event invites pre-qualified, leading luxury travel agency owners and managers to meet one-on-one with the top luxury travel suppliers. The event brought together 53 luxury advisors with 55 luxury suppliers and coordinated 1,300 one-on-one meetings, as well engaged them in lovely networking receptions both on site at the Eau Palm Beach, and also at the exquisite PGA National Resort.

ULTRA Summit is known for its exceptional programming curated to arm attendees with the data and information they need to make strategic business decisions that will ultimately impact their bottom line.

Ruthanne Terrero, Vice President/Head of Content, Questex Travel and Wellness Group opened the conference presenting the State of the Industry, an annual report based on a pre-event survey distributed to the attending advisors. The new, emerging trends show luxury travel has turned inward, towards family-oriented travel and personal health. The main categories which grew fastest include health & wellness, domestic travel and family travel. The post pandemic inflation and stock market volatility did not show any significant impact on luxury travel spending. And in general, the survey shows the need for travel advisors. 

There was also a Luxury Market Study presented by Steve Cohen, Managing Partner, Stelico Consulting Group in Partnership with The Olinger Group and Jude Olinger, Founder and CEO, The Olinger Group.

Terrero said, “Travel is back and there’s no better time to bring back leaders in luxury travel. This week we learned about the importance of experiences, new opportunities for travelers as well as the industry’s emerging trends. It was wonderful to be back with advisors and suppliers at the magnificent Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa to get business done.”

In addition, the event’s keynote speaker, Chris Ramey, President of Affluent Insights and The Home Trust International, offered attendees innovative insights to take advantage of the exploding luxury category.

Panel sessions were also presented where top advisors shared how they exceed expectations by asking clients the right types of questions; followed by an advisor think tank, which looked at new strategies for a new world.

One of the mainstays of the ULTRA conference – a pop up session, where Terrero challenged the audience with a question to stimulate thought leadership and conversation. This year’s topic – what was the most ordinary experience in the luxury segment? Advisors and suppliers alike shared inside secrets unique to various properties and destinations.

Event sponsors included: Cayman Islands, Eau Palm Beach & the Palm Beaches, Explora Journeys, Ireland Tourism, Silversea Cruises, Viking, and Visit Monaco.

Luxury Travel Advisor also announced the winners of the prestigious Awards of Excellence, which recognize companies considered to be the elite suppliers in the luxury travel category for the year. See the winners here.

For those interested in becoming a supplier at a future Ultra Summit, please contact our team. For those interested in applying to become a hosted advisor, please reach out to Andrea Hutchinson, Industry Relations Director. 

The 2023 Luxury Travel Advisor’s ULTRA Summit date will be announced in the coming weeks.

Here’s what attendees and exhibitors had to say about the Sensors Converge.

“Our team members really enjoyed the showcase, the interactions with other robotics teams, as well as the conversations with professional engineers at the Expo. I believe that this event has planted a seed in their mind to be scientists and engineers in the future,” said Yiliang Wu, Ph.D., Sr. Principal Scientist/Manager, Corporate Technology Center.

“I found it really well organized and spent a lot of time talking to booth exhibitors since as a hardware product maker the attendees were exactly who I wanted to talk to,” said Kevin Hsu, CTO and Co-founder, Tellus.

“After a 2-year hiatus from in-person shows, we were concerned about the quality of trade shows as things begin to resume. Exhibiting is a major expense for small businesses like ours, but we decided to make the investment. The attendees were decision makers looking for solutions. We were able to meet and have conversations with the right people for our business, and came away with several high quality opportunities. Sensors Converge was a very worthwhile investment for us. It showed that in-person trade shows are still an important part of our marketing and sales strategy. We will see you there next year,” said Justin Hopper, Director of Marketing, Nexcomm Systems.

Sensors Converge 2023 will take place June 20-22 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California. Get on the list for exclusive offers, show updates and more. For sponsorship opportunities click here.

Questex’s Digital Signage Experience Announces Google Executive to Keynote November Event in Las Vegas

ChromeOS leader Naveen Viswanatha will discuss how to redefine customer experience through modern kiosk and signage solutions

NEW YORK, July 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Questex’s Digital Signage Experience (DSE) today announces Naveen Viswanatha, head of product management for ChromeOS at Google will deliver a keynote address at the event, which takes place November 17-19, 2022, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. Register here.

Viswanatha’s address, “Redefine Your Customer Experience with Modern Kiosk and Signage Solutions,” is slated for 10:30 a.m. on November 19.

According to the Logicalis 2021 Global CIO Survey, 81% of CIOs believe that redefining the customer and employee experience will become increasingly important in the next five years. However, traditional platforms and legacy solutions struggle to keep up with these rising expectations.

In Viswanatha’s presentation, he will share how cloud-based platforms reduce maintenance requirements and give teams the power to remotely manage any deployed device to deliver seamless experiences. With a comprehensive, fully integrated solution across all devices and peripherals, businesses can become leaders in digital transformation.

“Current kiosk and digital signage solutions are expensive, unreliable, and overly complex, and businesses need technology that modernizes their experience without the difficulties involved in traditional systems,” said Viswanatha. “I look forward to sharing what we’ve learned at Google, built around the end-user computing growth that we have been seeing the last several years.”

“Google is a clear leader in the technology space, and we’re thrilled to have Naveen share his wisdom with our audience,” said David Drain, DSE’s director of event programs. “Google brings a unique viewpoint to the digital signage industry that I am sure many will be interested to hear.”

Viswanatha is a technology leader with over 20 years of industry experience. He currently leads the ChromeOS product and engineering teams focused on key solution areas such as contact centers, virtualization and app streaming, and kiosks in addition to developing the next generation enterprise web platform capabilities. Prior to this role, Viswanatha led the ChromeOS Education team, enabling 45M+ students to utilize Chromebooks in their learning journeys. He was also an early member of the Google Cloud (formerly Enterprise) team and has held positions in product management, partnerships and sales. Prior to Google, Viswanatha worked as an engineer at various startups in the Bay Area.
