That’s why we bring together experiential travel’s most inspiring names to build relationships and find new ways of Changing Worlds, for travellers and local communities. We fuel their passion and challenge every PUREist to elevate what they do beyond just business. To join the movement, register below.
Buenos Aires, Argentina
A unique event which will bring together the best travel emotion suppliers in the region of Latin America as well as products from the Caribbean and Central America. We derive great pleasure in making small luxury hotels from faraway Patagonia, a little boat sailing to the Galápagos Islands and the most iconic hotel from a Latin American city come together at this extra-special event created with love and dedication. Emotions is a doorway to the world, an invitation to discover and give visibility to truly authentic Latin American experiences.
New York, United States
PROUD Experiences is the first of its kind. An international three-day event bringing together travel suppliers and buyers as well as lifestyle brands targeting the LGBTQ+ community. Back in New York City for 2020, you’ll have the chance to meet with your peers through Pre-Scheduled Appointments, matching you to buyers and suppliers that fulfill your aspirations. You’ll hear from influential people who can pass on some great lessons, enabling you to avoid the mistakes of brands who have ‘superficially’ tried to break into the LGBTQ+ market. With limited places, the lucky few will develop business, strategies and creative ideas to better serve this fast growing market.
