Houston: Luxury Meetings
August 30 @ 4:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Luxury Meetings has been connecting hoteliers and destination suppliers with qualified corporate, association, and 3rd party meeting planners since 2008 (over 750+ events of this kind).
Luxury Meetings focuses on bringing qualified meeting planners who are located within a 45-min drive radius of the host property, (however, many times we have planners drive in from further than that), to meet with some of the world’s best Hotels, Resorts, & Destinations, for the sole purpose of finding potential locations to host their future meetings, incentives, conferences, expositions, or events.
The Luxury Meetings Showcase & Reception is an efficient 3-hour event, versus a high-cost, time-consuming trade show. The format ensures that every meeting planner meets face-to-face with every supplier via our semi-structured Speed Meetings™ format, while simultaneously enjoying a reception with heavy hors-d’œuvre, open bar, prizes, charity silent auction, and gifts from our global gifting partners…… oh…. and most importantly having FUN with your industry colleagues IN-PERSON!
Luxury Meetings is committed to attracting only pre-qualified, top-tier meeting planners who have viable and active meetings for which they are sourcing.
We encourage you to apply to register now, as space is very limited, for this complimentary reception and showcase. The first 50 confirmed qualified meeting planners will receive a complimentary gift valued at over $100, at the event, from our global gifting partner.
We invite and encourage you to register now to attend and also please share this event information with your meeting planner friends so they too can register.

Covid-19: We’re acutely aware of the challenges involved in meeting in person and are prepared to rise to the challenge. As Luxury Meetings resumes in-person meetings amidst the waning days of this global pandemic, we recognize the need to implement the latest safety protocols. To operate our Luxury Meetings events responsibly, it is vital that we take every action to make our participants, suppliers, and staff feel comfortable with the precautionary actions that we’ve implemented. There is a myriad of considerations and resources which we and our host venues have explored and will employ to provide a comfortable and effective environment for networking in person that is as safe as possible.
