Sol Kerzner to headline the 2010 ILTM Ultratravel Forum
Tuesday 17, August 2010
International tourism magnate and renowned hotelier Sol Kerzner will take part in an exclusive, conversational, one-to-one interview at the Ultratravel Forum at this year’s International Luxury Travel Market (ILTM) in Cannes in December.
Founder of legendary hotels including Sun City and the Atlantis resorts in the Bahamas and on the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai, as well as luxury hotel company One&Only Resorts, Sol Kerzner will be interviewed by Graham Boynton, Group Travel Editor of the UK’s Telegraph Group Media. During their discussion on the stage, Graham will seek to uncover Mr Kerzner’s views on what has changed in the world of luxury travel during his fifty-years in the industry – as well as what he believes the future holds. This conversation will serve as the finale of the ILTM Ultratravel Forum on Monday 6 December.
ILTM features the world’s definitive collection of luxury experiences and prestigious luxury travel products. Following the great success of the inaugural event at last year’s ILTM, the Ultratravel Forum brings together a heavyweight panel of the industry’s movers and shakers – including many Presidents and CEOs of top international luxury travel suppliers and buyers – to discuss the key issues facing the industry today.
The moderators of the two discussion panels at the Forum prior to the interview with Mr Kerzner will be Graham Boynton, who is also Editor of Ultratravel magazine and Klara Glowczewska, Editor-in-Chief of Conde Nast Traveler in the US.
“We are absolutely delighted that Sol Kerzner, a major figurehead of the international hotel industry, is to be guest of honour at this year’s ILTM.
“It is also particularly pleasing that ILTM attracts such a prestigious list of panellists representing a cross section of the international luxury travel market. It is rare to bring together in one place, on one stage, such a distinguished group of industry leaders,” said Debbie Joslin, Group Exhibition Director ILTM.

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
