TFest, the world’s first AI-powered luxury travel festival, is a bold new event concept from Private Luxury Events that waves goodbye to the traditional trade show format. On the Palm, Dubai, in February 2020, it will bring together the most influential buyers and sellers in luxury travel in a vibrant festival that uses technology to create an experience that is both large-scale and personal.
Throughout the three-day festival, AI matchmaking will help delegates connect with more people than ever before, giving them a personalised experience and a better return on their time and investment.
TFest: The connected festival
This new event is a free-flowing festival of connections, ideas and inspiration that brings the whole luxury travel industry together. TFest showcases the freshest brands, ideas, destinations and properties in luxury travel. It features inspiring workshops, insightful thought leaders and offers hundreds of connections for every attendee. By taking the guesswork out of making connections, AI opens the door to hundreds of extra connection opportunities that attendees would otherwise have missed.
Richard Barnes, CEO, Private Luxury Events commented, “We launched TFest to make personalised connections happen on a larger scale and in real time, at a single celebratory event where our global luxury travel community can come together. We believe AI matchmaking technology will reshape the networking industry and give delegates at our events a better experience, where they have complete control of every interaction and get a better return on their valuable time. It’s going to transform B2B networking by helping everyone get the outcomes they want.”
How does AI-powered matchmaking work?
Private Luxury Events has drawn on its 15 years of industry experience to take connecting further. By harnessing its data from over 100 events in an artificial intelligence platform, it has found a way to radically improve the quality of meetings between buyers and suppliers.
Attendees still have guaranteed morning meetings with carefully matched buyers and exhibitors. But in TFest’s free-flowing afternoons, AI matchmaking technology empowers delegates to break free of rigid schedules through personalised recommendations, helping them meet the right people to take their business further.
The AI technology uses machine learning and advanced algorithms to make intelligent initial recommendations that get smarter over time. Every time someone uses the app, the more it learns and the better the recommendations become.
