Project Overview: T+L’s Travel Advisory Board is a panel of the nation’s top travel advisors that offer insider perspectives on the needs and desires of today’s travelers. These twenty-six leading travel specialists interact daily with affluent consumers. In 2023 they were responsible for $21.4 billion gross revenue and managed 10.500 advisors and support staff. 

The visit to Hong Kong is a result of the partnership between five leading luxury hotels companies and Cathay Pacific and is a five-day program. Many of the advisors are extending to other regional destinations pre or posting the event thanks to the generosity of the hotel partners.


For the advisors this is the first return visit for some considerable time and is an opportunity to highlight the destination under the tag line: “Re-explore Hong Kong, Linger Longer.” Over 5 days each host hotel prepared a day's itinerary of events and experiences for the guests.
