Virtuoso is the #1 network of luxury travel advisors in the world. I spoke at their industry conference a few weeks ago. Luxury travel is undergoing a renaissance as people seek downtime, unplugged, free to explore exotic terrains. But like many industries, travel is a non-essential investment.
I was thrilled to set my team loose to unearth where the consumer culture is heading with leisure, travel and a revised idea of what luxury is. Because every talk is its own mini-research project, I was stoked to unveil some red hot data for people. In the audience was Dori Saltzman, a travel writer who was so inspired by what she learned that she wrote this follow-up piece. Thanks, Dori. You honor me.
