I attended the last LISTEX Luxury Trade event on the 22nd June 2022 and met with most of our key mountain partners, which was a real pleasure. It was very well organised as the appointments are pre-scheduled in advance. The press dinner was a great opportunity to network with all attendees including press and had a lovely atmosphere.”
