About this Event
Luxury Meetings has been connecting hoteliers and destination suppliers with Austin's qualified corporate, association, and 3rd party meeting planning companies since 2008 (over 800+ events of this kind).
Luxury Meetings focuses on bringing qualified meeting planners who are located within a 45-min drive radius of the host property, Hotel Viata Austin, to meet with twenty-five (25) of The World’s Best Hotels, Resorts, & Destinations, for the sole purpose of finding potential locations to host their future meetings, incentives, conferences, expositions, or events.
The Luxury Meetings Luncheon & Showcase is an efficient 3-hour event versus a high-cost, time-consuming trade show. The format ensures that every meeting planner meets face-to-face with every supplier via our semi-structured Speed Meetings™ format while simultaneously enjoying a gourmet plated luncheon, prizes, live charity auction, and gifts from our global gifting partners.....and, most importantly, having FUN with your industry colleagues IN-PERSON!
Luxury Meetings is committed to attracting only pre-qualified, top-tier meeting planners with viable and active meetings for which they are sourcing. Upon registering to attend, your registration must be approved by the Luxury Meetings team.
We encourage you to apply to register now, as space is very limited, for this complimentary luncheon and showcase.
