 TFWA registration opens

Online registration for the TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference is now open.

The event is scheduled to be held at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre in Singapore on May 12-16.

“Asia remains the largest duty free and travel retail region and is continuing to expand at a rapid pace,” said TFWA president Alain Maingreaud. “The latest Generation Research figures show preliminary duty free and travel retail sales in Asia Pacific standing at US$8.9bn for Q1 2018, up 11.5 percent year-on-year.”

According to a TFWA press note, last year the exhibition and conference broke the attendance record for this event when it attracted 3,194 delegates from across the duty-free and travel-retail industry, three percent more than 2017’s attendance of 3,087.

Among the themes to be explored during the day-long plenary conference will be travel retail’s omnichannel future, the role technology can play in helping improve conversion rates, sustainability in travel retail, and the future for brands in a hyper-regulated world.

Delegates will have the opportunity to relax and network at a number of social events taking place around the exhibition and conference, including at the Chill-Out Party, which is being sponsored by Lacoste and the Korea Ginseng Corporation at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel on May 14.

The press note said the exhibition and conference would be supported once again by the Singapore Tourism Board, and by Changi Airport Group as Diamond Sponsor of this year’s Conference.
