As duty free and travel retail’s largest market by turnover, Asia Pacific increasingly shapes the retail offer elsewhere. By addressing the region and its diverse mix of travellers, TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference also discerns the trends that influence the business beyond Asian shores. The 3,000+ visitors blend leading regional operators and landlords with executives from further afield. While many exhibitors are global, the growing reach of Asian brands gives the Exhibition a distinctive feel, and this strong presence from within the region makes networking effective for anyone interested in its travelling consumers.
Spread over two floors of Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands venue, the Exhibition brings together 300+ brand companies, from globally recognised names to the region’s emerging players. The Conference explores the broader political and business context in Asia Pacific, and is followed by several Workshops that tackle the issues that matter for duty free and travel retail. Outside formal business hours, a carefully chosen schedule of leisure activities and social events in stunning locations helps delegates cultivate new contacts.
