Webinar organized by TAKECARE.TRAVEL, consulting services for leaders in sustainability.
The codes of luxury in travel have changed, join our webinar and listen to true champions of sustainability who have redefined true luxury.
“Luxury travel today is defined less by thread count and Michelin stars and more by access to the people, places and experiences that represent all that is authentic about a destination. There’s no denying that comfort factors still apply and high standards of accommodation and dining will always feature on the luxury traveller’s wish list. However, today’s luxury traveller seeks more depth of understanding and immersion into local culture than ever before. People don’t just want to see – they want to participate. – George Morgan-Grenville, Chief Executive Officer, Red Savannah
