Chic Travel Market will feature high-end lifestyle and luxury brands of hotels, cruises and excursions, as well as products and services.
“The Chic Travel Market is a space to promote the culture of luxury tourism in the country. The event is an opportunity to educate operators, consumers, and travel agencies about luxury tourism,” explained Paul Pries, director of the South American Luxury Travel Association.
Pries explained that the fair is aimed at entrepreneurs in the tourism industry and that “it is an ideal instance to share interests and likes, bring luxury to the final consumer and realize networking at the highest level.”
