New-age luxury travel event to launch in 2020

World’s first AI-powered luxury travel festival, TFest, to debut in Dubai.

Touted as the world’s first AI-powered luxury travel festival, TFest is a bold new event concept by Private Luxury Events set to debut at Atlantis The Palm, Dubai, in February 2020.

The three-day B2B event will bring together buyers and sellers in luxury travel, using AI matchmaking to help delegates connect.

A ‘free flow’ format will see pre-scheduled meetings take place in the morning, leaving delegates free in the afternoon to pursue personalised recommendations delivered by the event’s AI platform.

Private Luxury Events CEO, Richard Barnes, says: “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.”

How does AI-powered matchmaking work?

With 15 years of industry experience, Private Luxury Events will utilise data from more than 100 events to inform an artificial intelligence platform about delegate and buyer needs, and match accordingly.

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.
