The number of representatives from duty free and travel retail operators and landlords stood at 1,291 up by 4% on 2019. There was a full house at Monday’s conference, with 1,572 delegates, a record attendance, hearing from impressive speakers.
With 200 exhibitors and a floor space of 8,469m2, the exhibition was also a quantifiable success. 61 of these companies were new exhibitors, including a mix of large international names and well-known regional brands.
Innovation continued to be a focus, with TFWA i.lab Asia making its debut in Singapore. The ideas hub had a dedicated area on Level 1 and gave delegates the opportunity to find out more about the new initiatives shaping the future of the industry.
Once again proving to be a sought-after feature of TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference, the TFWA ONE2ONE meeting service facilitated a total of 678 on-site meetings throughout the week.
After a number of years apart, face-to-face networking was clearly a priority. 1,016 guests attended TFWA’s ‘Welcome Cocktail’ event at the Flower Dome, Gardens by the Bay, while over 500 guests enjoyed the TFWA Asia Pacific Lounge each evening.
