One of the most important events in the duty free and travel retail calendar, TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference, will continue to be held in Singapore over the next four years.
An agreement has been signed with the Singapore Alliance group of partners1 that will see the country host the event from 2023 until at least 2026, with an option to extend the agreement. Singapore Airlines will be the official airline for TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference and the event will continue to be held in May each year.
Next year’s TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference will take place at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore from 7th to 11th May. Further details on the 2023 TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference will follow shortly.
“We’re delighted to conclude an agreement with Singapore to host TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference for the years ahead. The decision to host our event here is sound for many reasons. The quality of the infrastructure is outstanding, the city is extremely dynamic and business friendly, and there are significant plans underway both at Changi Airport and Marina Bay Sands to enhance what are already first-class facilities. As a business centre and a travel hub with highly impressive connections to all corners of the world, it is an unrivalled choice of location. We are looking forward to working with the Singapore Tourism Board and all of our partners on our future events, and we can assure all our industry friends and colleagues of a warm welcome in Singapore, beginning next year.”
Erik Juul-Mortensen, TFWA President
“The Singapore Tourism Board is delighted to extend our partnership with TFWA to host TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference in 2023 and beyond. As a leading business events destination and travel hub, Singapore’s interests in the growth of international tourism and travel are closely aligned with TFWA. We are heartened by the strong rebound in both business events and leisure visitors to Singapore. Our world-class connectivity, thriving business environment, as well as vibrant lifestyle and entertainment offerings, make Singapore an ideal venue to support the continued growth of the global travel retail industry.”
