Privacy has always been synonymous with luxury. From secluded residences, pristine islands and private yachts to exclusive experiences and full hotel buyouts, the huge demand for private travel is a trend that is only set to continue.
Do Not Disturb is the latest evolution from This is Beyond, the community creators behind PURE Life Experiences, L.E/Miami, We Are Africa and Further East.
WE'RE SEEKING TRUE EXCLUSIVITY
From private islands to secret groves, your property or service offers pure escapism – both physical and mental – from the real world.
Committed to protecting people and the planet, you place green principles at the core of your ethos. Private travel has often been at odds with sustainability: you know they can peacefully coexist.
Masters of discretion and avoiding crowds, privacy is your specialty – and deeply personal, sky’s-the-limit service comes as standard.

“Winston Churchill once famously said: ‘I’m easily satisfied with the very best’. Do Not Disturb fills exactly that void in the marketplace. We look forward to bringing our portfolio of exceptional XO Private members to the table.”
Yvan Vermeesch, MD & Founder, XO Private
Official Partner of Do Not Disturb
“A best in show platform that introduces the creme de la creme of travel suppliers to elite travel designers.”
Darren Humphreys, Travel Sommelier
“While I have attended luxury trade shows in the past this one was definitely a class apart. It has opened up my thinking and made me reimagine high-end private travel. The participating suppliers were extraordinary- each one of them, leaders in their respective area of expertise, whether it was Private Charter, Villas, Yacht, Residences or Experiential DMC.”
Srikant Kalyansundarm, The Blu Orb
“Incredible trade show that is firmly a favourite .... the calibre of clients, the intimacy of the event, the relationships strengthened and the new contacts, are all top quality. This show could quite possibly be our biggest ROI from a show to date, as the buyers are the ones we struggle to meet for our exclusive-use properties.”
Bronwyn Smith, Thanda Island
“Great conference with quality buyers that seem to fit the niche product we have to offer. 100% for the organisation of the 4 days, the activities and the choice of Borgo Egnazia as venue.”
Anne Dongois, Nukutepipi Private Island
“Exclusivity is an overused term in the travel industry but DND more than delivered on the concept. Borgo Egnazia served as the perfect backdrop to meet with industry elites and the intimate networking with suppliers offering truly unique and ultra-private experiences was informative, refreshing and inspiring”
Samantha Collum, River Oaks Travel
“The best show… and I have been doing shows for 14 years! Borgo Egnazia made the show elegant and comfortable, like the product being exhibited. Having the buyers and exhibitors stay in the same place is a game changer. Also the size and exclusivity is key.”
Kate Coleridge, Arijiju
“DND was an extraordinary production, bringing together some of the world's finest in the elite luxury travel industry. Somehow, we were all transported simultaneously by the magic of Borgo Egnazia and the expertly executed events, excursions and meetings arranged. In a word, it was incredible!”
