In a few days. the luxury travel fair loop opens its doors in Frankfurt am Main. From March 26-29, 2017, Frankfurt will transform into a mecca for the international luxury tourism industry. Germany’s only luxury exhibition “loop – Luxury on our Planet” opens the floor for 100 international renowned hoteliers, hotel owners and providers of tourist luxury products to meet with 100 interested buyers from the German-speaking market. “loop brings the right people together at the right place and creates a vibrant community for travel agencies and even small niche operators and providers. The concept of the exhibition is designed to increase sales and compress time resources. In order to reach the same number of personal appointments as at the fair, suppliers and retailers would normally require six months and would generate enormous travel expenses,” says Astrid Oberhummer, Founder and Organizer of loop.
The 100 exhibitors this year include:
