The recent lift of restrictions means that travellers entering France are no longer required to present proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test, regardless of their country of origin.
With networking remaining the top priority for many industry colleagues, this year’s edition offers participants a plethora of social opportunities, including the TFWA Lounge, for which Qatar Duty Free has been confirmed as the main partner. The ‘TFWA Lounge: after-work session’ will take place on Carlton Beach from Monday to Wednesday between 18:30 and 21:00, and in addition to this, a new late night social gathering – ‘TFWA Lounge: night-time session’ – also hosted on Carlton Beach will run on the same days between 23:00 and 02:00.
