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 around $70 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 Innovation Lab is a showcase for new ideas and fresh thinking directly relevant to the 12,000 duty free and travel retail professionals who regularly attend TFWA World Exhibition & Conference. Building on the acclaimed TFWA Digital Village launched in 2017, TFWA Innovation Lab brings a unique blend of technology, traveller insight and sustainability to Cannes for 2019 in a new, dedicated space facing the Majestic Beach. There, more than 30 exhibitors will have the chance to meet the leading decision-makers and senior executives of a dynamic, premium sector looking for innovative answers to today’s (and tomorrow’s) challenges.
