International Luxury Travel Market, Cannes

The global luxury travel market

The International Luxury Travel Market is the leading ‘invitation-only’ event for the global luxury travel community, held annually at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, Cannes.

The next edition will be held December 4-7, 2023.

Each year ILTM brings together the world’s most sought after collection of luxury experiences for discerning international luxury travel buyers, for four days of unrivaled business and networking opportunities. Exhibitors from some of the world’s most exclusive travel destinations hook up with buyers from around the globe every year.

Invitation-only travel suppliers

As buyers are only admitted on invitation, there is a screening process for suppliers. The goal is to find absolute best experiences for the  roughly 1,300 senior VIP buyers. They then get to organise up to 50 20-minute meetings over the four days in Cannes.

According to their surveys, 90% of buyers do not attend ITLM events other than at Cannes; 34% of participants each year are first-timers.

 Luxury travel conferences

ILTM also hosts a number of conferences and workshops on travel-related themes for professionals. The themes cover subjects as varied as the effect of social media on the travel industry, how to market to growing markets, the implications of demographic changes and the marketing of environmentally-friendly travel.

participants also get to enjoy a gastronomic bar, fine dining and an interesting Débutante Pavilion for finding new products.

The 2023 event will be held between 4 – 7 December 2023 in Cannes. Check the official site at
