Luxperience has appointed Lindy Andrews as Director of Sales & Partner Alliances, effective immediately. With a strong background in leisure and MICE tourism industries, Lindy will lead the Luxperience worldwide sales team to generate more exhibitors from Australasia and the wider global market.
She will also focus effort on generating buyer registrations from a mix of luxury travel specialists and corporate and meetings professionals seeking business opportunities with venues, hotels and other unique products that target the high-end and experiential travel consumers.
Lindy has a proven track record helping generate record revenues, most recently at Novotel Manly and the Panthers Group of venues. She took her first agency’s annual turnover from $700,000 to $10 million in eight years. Lindy also created an online media portal for the Australian business events industry that ranked number one globally for key MICE industry search terms.
Lindy has spoken at events around Australia and organized incentive leisure and business gatherings for between 100 and 1,000 people on four continents. She was nominated for the Telstra Business Woman of the Year Awards in 2008.
Luxperience CEO Helen Logas said Lindy is well qualified as she understands the business needs of both product suppliers and high-end travel buyers seeking unique offerings for discerning clientele.
“This year’s Luxperience will be a compelling proposition for luxury travel professionals,” said Logas. “We’re privileged to have such a high quality industry expert as Lindy Andrews to help us drive that message home.”
