Apollo 11 astronaut Dr Buzz Aldrin – together with Neil Armstrong the first humans to set foot on the Moon in 1969 – will be delivering ILTM’s keynote address at the Forum.  “We are absolutely delighted that Dr Buzz Aldrin, an icon of the golden age of space travel, will be reminiscing on his experiences with Apollo and his moonwalk whilst looking ahead to the future of space travel. 

“It is also particularly pleasing that ILTM has attracted such a prestigious panel that represents a cross section of the international luxury travel market.  It is rare to bring together in one place, on one stage such a distinguished group of industry leaders,” said Debbie Joslin, group exhibition director ILTM.

The ILTM Ultratravel Forum will be followed by the inaugural ILTM ultra.travel Awards recognising the best luxury travel experiences from around the world, as voted for by the users of luxury travel community www.ultra.travel and the participants of Iltm.

The event looks forward to once again showcasing a variety of the most prestigious luxury travel products and services to the most discerning buyers – confirming its importance in the luxury travel market calendar.
