Also in 2014, Clive launched a completely new events concept called “Connections”. Connections is a unique and award-winning format, which seeks to create meaningful and lasting relationships between senior travel buyers and sellers. Connections events facilitate meetings and relationship-building through shared experiences that take place in some of the world’s most exclusive venues. The first Connections event took place in September 2014 at the Four Seasons in Hampshire. Since then, events have taken place in Spain, Portugal, China, Abu Dhabi, Italy, Thailand and Brazil.
