Private Luxury Events has announced TFest, the world’s first AI-powered luxury travel festival, that will take place at Atlantis, The Palm Dubai from 23 to 27 February, 2020. The event will bring together influential buyers and sellers in luxury travel in a festival that uses technology to create an experience that is both large-scale and personal.
Throughout the three-day festival, AI matchmaking will help delegates connect with more people than ever before, aiming to provide a personalised experience and a better return on time and investment.
TFest features workshops, talks by thought leaders and offers hundreds of connections for every attendee. By taking the guesswork out of making connections, AI opens the door to hundreds of extra connection opportunities that attendees would otherwise have missed.
Issam Kazim, Chief Executive Officer of Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing, said: “We are delighted to partner with Private Luxury Events to welcome 300 of the world’s most influential luxury travel buyers and 250 global luxury exhibitors to Dubai for TFest. With the strong focus on innovation not just within the tourism sector, but across the city, Dubai is the ideal location for this new event and the technology it is embracing. It will also be an opportunity for delegates to experience Dubai’s diverse range of destination offerings and gain a better understanding of why this has become one of the most visited cities in the world.”
Richard Barnes, CEO, Private Luxury Events commented: “We launched TFest to make personalised connections happen on a larger scale and in real time, at a single celebratory event where our global luxury travel community can come together. We believe AI matchmaking technology will reshape the networking industry and give delegates at our events a better experience, where they have complete control of every interaction and get a better return on their valuable time. It’s going to transform B2B networking by helping everyone get the outcomes they want.”
