About Connections Events
Connections is the global networking and event organiser exclusively for senior executives and experts in Luxury, Wellness and Meetings. We bring hand-picked leaders from the industry together to do business and to discuss the trends and challenges facing the marketplace. Decision makers meet through memorable experiences and educational debates that lead to meaningful and long-lasting business relationships.
Each event welcomes up to 80 delegates (30-40 high calibre buyers, 30-40 selected luxury suppliers and sponsors). All participants who join this event will be treated equally, with an all-inclusive package to minimise additional costs and arrangements. Buyers are invited following consultation with suppliers participating at each event. All luxury events are supported by The Telegraph Media Group and Amadeus.
The Experiences and Thought Leadership
The event is designed to create a relaxed and informal atmosphere – ties are not required. Each delegate has a personal agenda with a series of 40 minute 1-2-1 periods with key clients. Whilst we provide a meeting table in a conference room we encourage delegates to use the local facilities or take part in some shared experiences that will help to create a personal bond between each other that lays a stronger foundation for a future business relationship. Additional opportunities to mix with delegates are provided through seated table plans, group experiences and debates that tackle hot topics in the market AND which use the knowledge of the audience.
The Connections Wellbeing series will launch in 2017 with the support of Wellbeing Escapes. The inaugural event will be hosted in Iceland at the new 5* Blue Lagoon in September. The agenda will blend networking with senior executives, educational content that will challenge and inform, and hands on practical experiences that will showcase the latest techniques in wellness.
The buyers for this series will be global in nature and combine recognised agents and operators in wellbeing (i.e. Puur & Kuur, Netherlands; Ecossential Escapes, SA etc etc) and other agencies who are interested in developing their understanding of wellbeing to upsell to their clients. All will be working in the luxury market and the selection will be decided in consultation with the suppliers who have confirmed their participation.
