The MEADFA Conference 2017

To be held in the Phoenicia Hotel in Beirut from November 20-21, the MEADFA Conference will once again provide one of the highlights of the duty free and travel retail calendar. Against the backdrop of one of the Middle East’s most historic trading centres, the conference will offer unrivalled networking opportunities plus the chance to rediscover Beirut as the city re-emerges as a leading destination for regional tourism.

The MEADFA Conference programme will feature retail experts from within and beyond the industry in its line-up of speakers, offering delegates a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and opportunities of doing business in the Middle East and Africa. Over the course of two days, challenge convention, get a preview of consumer trends and the outlook for business, and learn about the latest developments in airports and airlines in the Middle East and Africa.

To complement the conference content, the event will, as always, include a full programme of social events, with traditional Lebanese hospitality to the fore, courtesy of major sponsors Beirut Duty Free, Middle East Airlines and Aphrodite Duty Free.
