It was a frenetic week in Vegas for members of the luxury-travel industry.
Virtuoso's members reportedly generate around $9.6 billion in luxury travel sales each year.
More than 4,200 industry members from 90 countries were in town for this year's speeches, luncheons and the luxury travel industry's equivalent of speed dating (four-minute meetings), with the aim of closing extravagant bookings.
Just how extravagant?
Mukul Beach won the Best Spa award.
A three-night, $450,000 wedding at Mexican luxury resort Rosewood Mayakoba closed within four minutes for VIP travel agent Jack Ezon, who told Las Vegas Review-Journal that Virtuoso Travel Week was "the most important week of the year" for his company.
The network also announced its annual Best of the Best Hotel Awards, which honors 10 winners from the network's portfolio of 983 luxury properties around the world.
The winning hotels were picked by editors of Virtuoso Life, the network's travel magazine, based on feedback from its reported 200,000 readers. Take a look at their choices below:
