The Bahamas Tourist Office will attend the prestigious “invitation only” International Luxury Travel Market (ILTM) event to be held in the French resort of Cannes December 5-8.

The event, to be held at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, is the leading annual business-to-business event for the global luxury travel community.

Operating as an “invitation only” event, ILTM strictly selects the world’s most elite luxury travel buyers and sought after suppliers. The product showcase respresents the industry’s diversity, offering everything from remote destinations and unique travel experiences to boutique hotels and luxury transport.

David Johnson, Director General of the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation, said: “Our first experience of ILTM in 2010 proved very positive and we are keen to build upon those, and new, relationships in 2012 and beyond to deliver the luxury traveller best suited to a large part of our Bahamian product.”

Although evidence at this point is mainly anecdotal, experts say property inventories are going down in the region. However, the industry is staying with "tried and true" second-home destinations.

The realignment of West Bay Street to skirt around the Baha Mar mega-resort marks the first step in the multi-million dollar development. Opened today, the new road clears the way for the next phase of construction. Pictured: Officials pose for opening and handover of the realigned West Bay Street.
