“Innovation continues to play a fundamental role in the recovery of the duty free and travel retail industry, and we are honouring this by positioning TFWA i.lab at the very centre of the TFWA World Exhibition & Conference. TFWA i.lab encourages delegates to explore new ways of operating while also providing them with ample opportunity to learn about some of the latest trends and developments set to shape the future of duty free and travel retail. With a range of pioneering companies sharing new ideas, delegates can look forward to being both captivated and inspired during their time in Cannes.”
