Connections, the international private community for senior executives in high-end travel, is set to showcase its award-winning networking formula to the luxury travel industry in Lima, Peru, from July 12-15 in partnership with Promperu.
Focusing on the four key luxury travel sectors of adventure, meetings and incentives, wellbeing, weddings, the event will invite up to 120 global buyers to meet with up to 120 global suppliers, all of whom will be pre-qualified members of the Connections Community, representing the best in the industry. Over the course of the event, they will be introduced through one-to-one meetings and experiences and networking lunches and dinners in an intimate and relaxed environment.
Connections in Peru will invite attendees to immerse themselves in a unique sample of local, authentic experiences, such as sampling traditional Peruvian cuisine, crafting pollera skirts and chullo hats and participating in beach activities, nature walks and more.
“We are very much looking forward to working with the Connections team to bring their unique event concept to Lima,” says Marisol Acosta, director of tourism promotion. “Their personal and intimate approach to brokering meaningful business relationships is extremely innovative and we have no doubt that this event will support Peru in achieving global visibility as a luxury travel destination.”
Micaela Giacobbe, founder of Connections, adds: “We are really excited to welcome members of our international private community to experience Peru first-hand. Rich in gastronomy, culture and landscape—from the beautiful jungles and mountains to its sweeping coastlines—it is a destination that is still very much undiscovered by the luxury traveler. We hope to help change that.”
Since its launch in 2014, Connections has developed an approach called The Connections Way with the support of leading travel associations and brands. The approach facilitates long-lasting business relationships through memorable shared experiences at signature events around the world.
Connections is the global networking and event organizer exclusively for senior executives and experts in specific sectors such as luxury, wellness, adventure, meetings and weddings as well as destination led events, bespoke to specific countries. The mission is to bring a selected number of hand-picked leaders from the industry together to do business and to discuss the trends and challenges facing the marketplace.
