World’s first AI-powered luxury travel festival announced for 2020

Private Luxury Events has launched a bold new event concept that waves goodbye to the traditional tradeshow format.

On The Palm, Dubai, in February 2020, TFest will bring together 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 each other, with the technology designed to give them a more personalised experience and a better return on their time and investment.

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.

TFest is being branded as “a free-flowing festival of connections, ideas and inspiration that brings the whole luxury travel industry together”.

Richard Barnes, CEO at Private Luxury Events, said: “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.”
