Five major players from the landlord, retailer and brand sectors talk about their involvement in TFWA Asia Pacific Live, their impressions of the event and their take on the region’s evolving duty free & travel retail landscape. TFWA President Erik Juul-Mortensen assesses the two days at the Marina Bay Sands, reflecting on the importance of in-person events.
Of the 677 registered delegates, buyers & landlords formed the largest group, representing well over 1 in every 3 participants. Brand-owners accounted for a similar proportion of the companies in attendance, while TFWA’s ONE2ONE meeting service arranged more than 400 introductory encounters between potential partners.
