Connections, the international private community for senior executives in high-end travel, is gearing up for the second series of Visit California Luxury Forum, set to take place March 8-11, 2020 at the five-star, five-diamond Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, southern Orange County.
The event will run in partnership with Visit California and will be supported by leading sponsors, including Visit Dana Point, Monarch Beach Resort, The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel and Marriott Laguna Cliffs.
“The Connections platform, which has been designed with the travel trade in mind, has been a game changer for us,” said Caroline Beteta, president & CEO of Visit California, in a statement, “and we are very much looking forward to working with the team to deliver the second series, which will put Dana Point on the global luxury travel map.”
Connections will bring a hand-picked selection of luxury agencies representing California’s key and emerging source markets to meet with the region’s finest suppliers. The immersive event will also welcome distinguished CEOs from Californian destination management companies, providing a strategic platform for them to engage with.
Experiences offered at the 2020 event will be local and authentic—pairing high-end luxury with the laid-back surf culture of Dana Point. They will include surf lessons, whale watching, seaside golf and a visit to the beautiful island of Catalina.
The 2020 Visit California Luxury Forum will also include an educational program, which will address key trends and challenges facing the luxury travel market.
