NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Mar 19, 2013) - Questex Hospitality + Travel will debut its ULTRA Luxury Exchange (ULTRA) event this June, bringing the world's most elite travel advisors and suppliers together for an exclusive discussion about the latest research and trends in ultra-luxury travel.

The invitation-only program, to be held at the award-winning Turnberry Isle Miami from June 2 to 4, 2013, will afford participants the opportunity to share their knowledge and insights about high-net-worth individuals, the future of the ultra-luxury landscape and the development and impact of synergetic markets on travel.

The three-day event will offer an intimate setting to host the 50 most prestigious travel advisors and 25 suppliers, each selected for their expertise as the world's top purveyors of affluent travel.

"ULTRA has the ability to reshape how travel is consumed, perceived and accessed," said Ruthanne Terrero, Questex Hospitality + Travel vice president of content and editorial director. "The caliber of travel advisors we are joining together will enable us to tap in to the top thought leaders in luxury travel and draft a true blueprint for the industry going forward."

The event's exclusive format features a two-to-one advisor-supplier ratio -- an "industry first," according to Terrero -- as well as a robust program consisting of intimate one-to-one appointments, elegant networking functions and thought-provoking educational content.

Only 25 ultra-luxury supplier sponsors will participate, affording them tremendous benefits including intimate networking opportunities with C-level industry decision-makers, white-paper research on emerging trends developed exclusively at ULTRA and post-event coverage.
