But Papas also has a goal of increasing the presence of top-selling Kiwi agents (who need to meet strict criteria to attend) and says there is an opportunity for these people to be hosted to Sydney for the event.
‘We’re certainly looking for brokers who meet our criteria. They often fly under the radar and that is probably why they are so good – these clients usually want their privacy and they have a strong relationship with their travel specialist.’
Diversified Communications, which recently purchased the event, has made several changes to the luxury and experiential travel exhibition, being held in Sydney 16 to 19 September 2018.
One of these is to relocate to a new home at the International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour.
Papas says agents dealing with corporates, incentive business and high-value family accounts may also qualify. Once at the exhibition agents will meet luxury suppliers from around the globe.
