Do Not Disturb is the global private travel community and event dedicated to space, seclusion and sustainability.
This November, we're uniting up to 100 top-tier buyers catering to the UHNWI, 10 globally-recognised journalists and 100 high-end international suppliers at the spectacular Borgo Egnazia in Italy.
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.
Following a hugely successful digital launch in June 2021 – the first physical edition will take place from 14-18 November 2022 in Puglia, Italy.
WE'RE SEEKING TRUE EXCLUSIVITY
We’re uniting top-tier buyers and suppliers who curate rare and remarkable experiences for the UHNW traveller, so you can maximise your private travel bookings in 2023 and beyond! We're looking for thoughtful brands who embody our ethos.
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.”

Official Partner of Do Not Disturb
The event has been a huge success, everyone I’ve met has been so engaged and exactly the people we want to meet. For me it’s the most rewarding and engaging conference I have ever attended in the virtual world…or… even real world if I’m totally honest!
Gavin Copus, Global Business Development Director, Air Charter Service
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.
