2019 INTERNATIONAL LCT SHOW: PEOPLE Luxury Dreamers Drive Mega-Show The annual industry networking and marketplace event matched operators and vendors with the tools to pursue business visions. By Martin Romjue & Lexi Tucker LCT editors T his year's LCT Show set the course for coming events with its embrace of innovation, disrup- tion, and change — in and out of the luxury ground transportation industry. Under the theme of "Dream Big," attendees traveled from 39 countries and 47 states to learn, network, buy and sell, and reunite at the industry's leading trade show and conference, now going 35 years strong. Las Vegas has been home to LCT events for three decades. As the original and largest industry brand, LCT looks forward to a new decade of growing industry connections. In just nine months, the industry will gather Feb. 17-20, 2020 at the Venetian for a revamped show with new partners, approaches, and innovations. Keynote speaker Michael Dominguez challenged attendees to customize their offerings to satisfy a disrupted, changing consumer marketplace. He summed up their mindset: "I can get what I want, where I want it, and how I want it. Don't tell me how I'm going to buy it." Quoting the late futurist and "Future Shock " author Alvin Toffler, he said: "Illiteracy in the 21st century has nothing to do with your ability to read or write. It has everything to do with your ability to learn, unlearn, and relearn." 6 WWW.LCTMAG.COM LUXURY COACH & TRANSPORTATION MAY 2019 { } Gary Spaniak of Springfield Coach Group on March 25 unveiled the new Mercedes-Benz Metris 80-inch stretch limousine that can carry up to 12 passengers.
