Our mission

Our mission is to build the most authoritative global community  
of luxury travel industry experts to connect, collaborate and grow business.

LUXPages was created by two trusted and highly experienced industry insiders, one with 30+ years as a travel advisor and one with 20+ years as a supplier, offering a 360-degree perspective of the needs of the luxury travel industry. Collectively, we felt a huge gap in the marketplace for one centralized, reliable source of information. This is something the rest of the industry complained about too, as the standard way of doing business is cumbersome, time consuming and disjointed. Personal databases are limited and near impossible to keep up to date. LUXPages is your access to all the luxury travel connections you need. Our goal is to be as inclusive and comprehensive as possible. We are committed to keeping this platform growing and evolving with the changing needs of our members. Finally, there is one meeting place for the entire luxury travel industry to connect, engage and enhance business.

Our founders

Alicia Diez

Alicia focused her passion for travel as a luxury travel advisor at Valerie Wilson Travel where, during her long tenure, she created tailor-made itineraries for clients and attended many luxury travel conferences cultivating an extensive network and garnering the respect of those suppliers.   From her experience in selling luxury travel, she understands what critical needs to be provided. Those connections have been brought to LUXPages and the network will continue to grow.

LUXPages is a platform whose time has come. As we find new ways in a post pandemic world to do business efficiently and strategically, having a one-stop shop for both hotel brands and advisors is extremely valuable. This is a thorough, well thought out service that will ultimately benefit the entire industry, created by two seasoned, trusted professionals.

Sales opportunities and meetings have changed, and we need a resource to assist with planning for future visits with our valued partners.
