TFWA AP E&C to return to Singapore in May 2022

By Laura Shirk

TFWA is delighted to confirm that the TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference will be returning to Singapore May 8 – 12, 2022.

The announcement follows encouraging discussions between TFWA and its partners in Singapore, where steps to ensure the sustainable re-start of international travel are underway. The Singapore authorities have announced that a number of new Vaccinated Travel Lanes will open later this month, meaning that vaccinated travelers flying from Canada, Denmark, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States – in addition to the earlier announced Germany and Brunei – will no longer need to quarantine on arrival in Singapore. Singapore and South Korea will also be launching a Vaccinated Travel Lane from November 15.

More details about TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference will follow soon. The commercial campaign for the event will begin in mid-November, at which point previous exhibitors at the event will be contacted by the TFWA team.

“TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference is one of the most popular events in the travel retail calendar, and after two long years, we are thrilled to say: ‘We are back.’ Singapore has long proved to be the perfect location to bring the Asia Pacific industry together, and we are working very closely with our hosts and partners in the country to ensure a safe and enjoyable event. We will release more details in due course, but for now, we urge everyone to mark their diaries for the return of this fantastic event,” Jaya Sing, TFWA President.

“Singapore is pleased to welcome the 2022 return of TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference, known to be the best-in-class event for the regional duty free and travel retail industry. TFWA’s decision to hold their event in Singapore reaffirms our strategic position as a Global Asia Node, and as a trusted and innovative destination for MICE and business. As more Vaccinated Travel Lanes and international links open progressively, we look forward to extending a warm welcome to all participants in Singapore next year,” adds Yap Chin Siang, Deputy Chief Executive, Singapore Tourism Board.
