Tripwix at ILTM Latin America in Sao Paulo and ILTM Asia Pacific in Singapore
It has been a very busy month for Tripwix’s Chief Operating Officer, Miguel Carvalho, as he flew back and forth across time zones to promote the unique luxury hospitality services that Tripwix offers to industry partners in the elite travel markets.
Tripwix were pleased to be invited yet again to take part in two International Luxury Travel Market (ITLM) trade shows: one in Sao Paulo, Brazil and another in the island city-state of Singapore. The ILTM shows are the leading events for professionals and companies working within the luxury travel industry.
Last year, Tripwix attended the ILTM Mayakoba show on Mexico’s Caribbean coast, which serves the North American market, and we are currently finalizing plans to attend another ILTM luxury travel show in Cannes in December which targets the European market.
ILTM Latin America in Sao Paulo
Formerly known as Travelweek Sao Paulo, this year’s event took place from May 8th to May 11th at Ibirapuera Park, Sao Paulo, Brazil.
ILTM Asia Pacific in Singapore
The travel show for 2018 took place in the Sands expo and convention center in Singapore from May 21st to May 24th

Miguel attended the four-day events in Sao Paulo and Singapore representing Tripwix and keeping an ear to the ground for the latest trends in the luxury travel markets while forging solid relationships with our industry partners. The much-coveted invitation-only events bring together only the very best travel specialists and advisors from across the globe. TripWix was both proud and excited to be once again invited to such prestigious events, hosting a stand alongside big names in the luxury travel market such as the Four Seasons, Mandarin Hotels, Belmond, Waldorf Astoria and Jumeirah amongst others.
Miguel met with top travel and leisure agencies from a wide range of countries, including Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Mexico, Uruguay, Singapore, China, Taiwan, Korea, Thailand, Philippines, India, Russia, Japan and Australia, all of whom were looking for new products and ideas to pass to their clients or other agencies.
