Luxury Tribe India show returns in March

Global luxury hospitality brands, elite buyers from India, and industry forerunners will gather in New Delhi for the second edition of Luxury Tribe India, next March.

The event, at the prestigious The Imperial, New Delhi from March 11-14, is committed to fostering connections in the luxury travel niche.

The importance of India’s growing prominence as a market for luxury hospitality brands to promote themselves to, cannot be understated. According to Knight Frank’s 2023 Wealth Report, the number of UHNWs in India is set to rise by 58% in the next five years, while its HNW population will increase by 107%. All of this equates to a class of Indian traveller with a huge disposable income, and the means and propensity to travel, said organisers.

"I am delighted to announce the second in-person edition of Luxury Tribe India at The Imperial, New Delhi," said Sheetal Rastogi, the Founder of Luxury Tribe.

"The Imperial is more than just a hotel; it stands as a living legacy, having played host to India's most pivotal moments and grand events. Hosting Luxury Tribe India within its storied walls is emblematic of the event's grandeur and exclusivity."

Building on the momentum of its successful virtual shows and landmark inaugural in-person event in March 2023, Luxury Tribe will host an elite gathering of international luxury hospitality brands under one roof, providing a gateway to India's leading travel designers, influencers, bespoke luxury travel agencies, and tastemakers from over 20 cities across India.

At Luxury Tribe India, exhibiting brands will spotlight a diverse range of destinations to this selective Indian audience. The show roster includes luxury hotels, high-end destination management companies, exclusive jet and yacht charter operators, expedition cruise lines, tourism boards, local attractions, and independent boutique hotels.

Highlighting what sets Luxury Tribe India apart, Rastogi said: "Our distinction lies in our deep-rooted understanding of the Indian luxury market. Through our ILLUME conference, we offer in-depth insights and market trends facilitating seamless market entry."

She added: "Our event caters to a segment known for its formidable spending capability. The sophisticated Indian consumer is drawn to unique boutique accommodations and seeks truly authentic experiences. Their passion for gastronomy and cultural immersion is evident. When we look at their travel preferences, the classics of the UK, the US and Europe — Italy, France, Switzerland, Spain — consistently dominate the charts. Locales like Bali, Vietnam, the Maldives, Bhutan, and Sri Lanka are emerging as top picks for shorter trips. Moreover, we're noting a growing interest in destinations such as Kenya, Tanzania, Japan, Finland, and Australia.”
