Once again, the eyes of the duty free and travel retail world are turning to Asia as pre-registration opens for this year’s TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference. The event is an essential diary date for those keen to learn more about the latest trends and developments affecting this dynamic region and to meet the key people from a market that must be a top priority for all industry stake holders.
“Asia continues to lead the field in terms of expansion in duty free and travel retail,” said TFWA president Erik Juul-Mortensen. “In the first half of 2017, according to preliminary figures from Generation Research, sales in the Asia Pacific region grew by 8.1%, considerably higher than in any other region. Asia Pacific sales topped US $15 billion, and accounted for approximately 45% of the global total. These impressive figures speak for themselves, and I’m sure the buoyant mood of our business in Asia will be reflected in considerable support for this year’s exhibition and conference.”
The 2017 TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference saw a number of records broken. A total of 3,087 delegates from the duty free and travel retail industry came through the doors, a figure that was up 6% from 2,905 in 2016.
The conference will be sponsored by diamond sponsor Changi Airport Group and platinum sponsor China Duty Free Group.
