TFWA is the world’s biggest duty free and travel retail association, organising high-quality exhibitions and acclaimed conferences for an industry with worldwide sales of over $60 billion. Foremost among these events is TFWA World Exhibition & Conference, the industry’s week-long, global gathering held every October in Cannes (southern France). In response to the fast-evolving commercial landscape, TFWA Digital Village is a showcase for creative digital solutions and services appealing to the 12,000 duty free and travel retail professionals who regularly attend TFWA World Exhibition & Conference. After a highly successful launch last year, TFWA Digital Village returns to Cannes in 2018 with 840m2 of prime floor space and an extra day’s duration to allow greater scope for interaction. Around 30 exhibitors will again have the chance to meet and do business with the leading decision-makers and senior executives of a dynamic, premium sector rapidly embracing new technology (see Resources for more details).
