TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference banner
In Asia Pacific as elsewhere around the globe, the duty free & travel retail industry is subject to regulatory pressures that could potentially restrict its ability to trade. It is vital for all industry stakeholders – landlords, retailers and brands – to be aware of the challenges faced, and the action necessary to meet them.

The TFWA Asia Pacific Conference offers an opportunity for the regional industry to discuss these issues, and to assess their likely impact on the business.  

The Re-assessing our industry: challenges today and tomorrow workshop will update delegates in two areas: firstly, the regulatory and other challenges that the regional and global industry must address if it is to thrive; and secondly, the latest data and insights on traffic trends and consumer behaviour, and the likely impact on our industry. The latest data from TFWA Research will be presented as part of the session, including highlights of recent studies produced by travel analyst ForwardKeys and strategic insights specialist Portland Design.

All delegates, including trade press, are encouraged to attend a session that will address the most pressing issues requiring action and a united front from our industry – across all regions and product categories.

Among speakers in this session will be:

Sarah Branquinho
European Travel Retail Confederation President


Jennifer Cords
Imperial Brands Head of Corporate Affairs and Compliance (Global Travel Retail) and APTRA Board Member


Olivier Jager
ForwardKeys Co-founder & CEO


Lewis Allen
Director of Environments, Portland Design


Terna Jibo
