TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference
TFWA Asia Pacific Hainan Special Edition kicks off with a vibrant e-networking session Day one of TFWA Asia Pacific Hainan Special Edition opened with a welcome e-networking session, which gave industry brands and partners across Asia and beyond the opportunity to reconnect in an informal and productive setting.

The e-networking sessions will run at the end of each day throughout the rest of the event, at the following timings: Tuesday 22nd June: 12:15-13:00 CET; Wednesday 23rd June: 12:45-13:30 CET; and Thursday 24th June 12:45-13:30 CET.

The new TFWA 365 platform, which makes its debut at TFWA Asia Pacific Hainan Special Edition, is hosting the event and offers a new way for travel retail professionals to connect. For a preview of the platform, which is soon to be offered as a year-round tool for the industry, watch this video.

During the e-networking sessions, Platinum Sponsor Duty Free Global is offering delegates the chance to win a bottle of Beau Joie Champagne if they predict the results of this week's Euro 2020 matches correctly. Alongside a packed schedule of workshops and conference sessions, virtual lounges and TFWA's ONE2ONE e-meeting service will also provide many different ways to conduct business and catch up with new and existing colleagues and friends.

"Seeing such a positive turnout at our first e-networking session, with many familiar and new faces, makes it all worthwhile to push ahead with an Asia-focussed event this year. Of course, an online event wouldn't be without some minor technical difficulties, but we're very proud of how the TFWA 365 platform has come to life, and we're ready and eager for the Conference tomorrow. Though we cannot yet meet in person, we've put all our efforts into making the TFWA 365 platform a place for the industry to come together and inspire a dialogue about how we approach the recovery of duty free and travel retail with full force. We hope delegates find the week ahead a useful forum for collaboration, information and communication. We are together on this exciting platform as well as event and I am sure that through this we will emerge stronger together as an industry on the move."
Jaya Singh, TFWA President
