inVOYAGE promises to showcase the best of Monaco this October, with event highlights set to include a green e-bike tour of destination, afternoon tea onboard the Oceania Marina cruise ship, networking evenings at Monte Carlo’s most exclusive venues, plus a great speaker line-up featuring experts in luxury travel and leadership.

The sixth annual inVOYAGE event will bring luxury travel brands together with high-level event planners representing some of the world’s leading corporations on 6-9 October, in partnership with Monaco Tourist Authority.

Taking place at the famous Hotel Hermitage Monte-Carlo and brand-new conference space One Monte-Carlo, inVOYAGE 2019 will create an encompassing destination and cultural discovery showcasing hotels and venues such as the re-invented Hotel de Paris Monte-Carlo, the refurbished Columbus Monte-Carlo, and the uber-luxury Hotel Metropole.

inVOYAGE founder & managing director Richard Joslin said: “We really have such a great line-up this year, not just with programme and speakers but also with the quality of senior level delegates attending. Agencies and corporates from the UK and throughout key European territories as well as Scandinavia and the USA amongst others. The mix of new and phenomenally luxurious hotel product and destinations covered this year has surpassed all our expectations, so we are set for a great inVOYAGE 2019 in Monaco.”

Well over 100 luxury brands and destination partners are participating in this year’s event including the likes of Mandarin Oriental, Shangri-La, Jumeirah, Accor, Oetker Collection, Maui Jim sunglasses, Melbourne Convention Bureau, Switzerland Convention & Incentive Bureau, Meet in Ireland and Silversea Cruises.

inVOYAGE 2019 will also see over 20 DMCs attending representing more than 50 destinations from Italy to India and Malta to Mauritius and including new brands to inVOYAGE such as Argentina Travel Partners, A&K Morocco, CMX Events Monaco and Kims Travel Korea to name just a few.

Buyers confirmed this year include senior representatives from companies across Europe, Asia and the US including BCD Meetings & Events, CI Group, First Event, Black Tomato Agency, Ingram Micro Cloud, Havas Luxe, MCI Group, CWT Meetings & Events, Make My Event and Coty.

“I am really looking forward to attending my second inVOYAGE event. The programme offers a great mix of education, networking and socialising all in a wonderful location. I’m looking forward to finding that WOW venue, service or location and sharing it with the Powwow team,” said Powwow Events director Amanda Edgcumbe.

This year’s inSIGHTS conference will include an interactive keynote session on how to achieve extraordinary results in business with former UK Porsche managing director Kevin Gaskell in partnership with Speakers Corner. Explorer, sportsman, entrepreneur, businessman and professional speaker, Kevin is recognised as one of the most capable leaders of his generation after leading the turnaround of UK Porsche from imminent bankruptcy to market leader.

Mintel’s Travel Analyst Marloes De Vries will also share insights into how the luxury travel market is evolving, what luxury travellers are looking for, and the increasing demand for sustainable luxury travel options.

Attendees at this year’s event will get the option to explore Monaco through a range of immersive experiences including a green tour of Monaco on e-bikes, a Catamaran cruise along the French Riviera, classic car tour and mouth-watering gourmet tasting and workshop.

Other exclusive networking experiences will include afternoon tea on-board the Oceania Marina with a soon to be announced special guest speaker, your choice of fabulous evening events at Hotel Metropole, NOBU at Fairmont Monte-Carlo, Columbus Monte-Carlo and Twiga Beach Club at Le Meridien Beach Plaza, plus a final night celebration at Twiga Sumasan (Billionaire Club).
