AFAR Conversations, AFAR Media’s unique event series bring together the trusted and influential voices of the AFAR Community for cocktails and a lively panel discussion. These exciting events are designed to inspire engaging conversations amongst leaders in the worlds of travel, culture, and commerce. AFAR Conversations have taken place in Los Angeles, Miami, and San Francisco, as well as New York, where we will be gathering on July 15 to discuss Exceptional Travel Experiences.

Read about our last AFAR Conversations, at the Peninsula Beverly Hills, which took a look at trends in the world of travel.

Watch a video of another recent AFAR Conversations, at the Chatwal in New York, focused on the evolution of the luxury consumer.

Now, add your voice to the conversation.

In anticipation of our upcoming event, we hope you can help kick it off by answering two questions:

1)   How do you define exceptional?

2)   Tell us about your most exceptional travel experience

We look forward to reading your answers—please write them in the comments below— and then we’ll see you in July!
