Internova SELECT Marketplace is designed to create opportunities for networking, sharing knowledge
LONDON – Internova Travel Group is bringing the Internova SELECT Marketplace to the United Kingdom on 1st December, connecting top-producing luxury travel advisors with preferred partners.
Participating travel advisors will be from Global Travel Collection U.K., which includes Colletts Travel, Protravel, Tzell Travel and In the Know Experiences, as well as representatives from ALTOUR UK, Barrhead Travel and Your Event Solutions (YES). The daylong event, organised locally by the YES team and GTC UK’s Partner Relations team, will take place at Internova Travel Group’s St Martin’s Lane office in London.
The London marketplace comes on the heels of the inaugural Internova SELECT Marketplace for the trade, held at Internova’s New York City headquarters in August. Luxury travel partners including hoteliers, destination management companies, airlines, cruise lines and tour operators had the chance to connect for face-to-face meetings with travel advisors across leisure, corporate and entertainment markets.
"Our New York City SELECT Marketplace was a great success and we are looking forward to expanding the same opportunities for networking to our luxury travel advisors in the United Kingdom,” said Albert Herrera, Executive Vice President, Partner Relations for Internova Travel Group. “Advisors and partners alike shared with us how much they appreciated the chance to connect in person. Events like these emphasise the importance of partnerships as we look to the future of luxury leisure travel.”
More than 40 partners are expected to attend the London marketplace. They include Accor, Kempinski Hotels, Jumeirah Hotels, Relais & Chateaux, Small Luxury Hotels, Four Seasons, InterContinental Hotels Group, Perowne International, Peninsula Hotels, The Goring, Etihad Airways, The Leading Hotels of the World, The SET Collection, Dorchester Collection, Pendry & Montage, Rosewood Le Guanahani St Barth and The Nomad Hotel.
Headline sponsors for the event include breakfast hosted by The Dorchester Collection and United Airlines, lunch, provided by Four Seasons, and a drinks reception, hosted by Accor.
“We are so excited to host this event at our London office where we’ll welcome our advisors and the UK leadership team from ALTOUR, Barrhead Travel and YES,” said Jason Oshiokpekhai, Managing Director, Global Travel Collection U.K. “It’s not often that our luxury travel advisors and luxury partners get to be in the same room to connect and discuss business for the year ahead. The knowledge they gain and the partnerships they forge will help them continue to provide the highest level of service to their U.K. travellers.”
“Due to the success and interest from our valued partners, we’re expanding the Internova SELECT Marketplace Event series in 2023 to include Los Angeles with New York and London,” continued Herrera.
