Speakers biographies

Fresh thinking

TFWA World Exhibition & Conference brings you world-class speakers, from captains of industry and political leaders to academics and authors. Get a new perspective on duty free and travel retail, business and geopolitics from some impeccable sources. You can also hone your professional skills at a range of industry-focused workshops with expert insight on today’s key issues. 

The 2014 Conference speakers were Gen. Colin Powell (Ret.), 65th US Secretary of State, whose unique military and diplomatic experience yielded some fascinating insights; Alexandre de Juniac, Chairman & CEO of Air France-KLM, with an eloquent analysis of the challenges facing today's aviation sector: and TFWA President Erik Juul-Mortensen who charted duty free and travel retail's progress over the last three decades in TFWA's 30th anniversary year. Two compelling workshops looked at Latin America and the inflight market, while a working lunch discussed the very real threat of counterfeit for the industry.
