why a festival?
An epic yet personal experience
We know that large events can feel impersonal, while smaller events provide the best environment for building relationships. We believe that through technology, we can bring the whole luxury travel world together but keep the small-scale spaces that make connections strong. Connect with the right people, in the right places, at the right time. This is why we created TFest.
