TFWA President Erik Juul-Mortensen said: “It’s extremely gratifying to see the range of brands which have committed to joining us in Singapore. We are determined to offer the duty free and travel retail industry in Asia Pacific the opportunity to gather and meet face-to-face once again. Networking in person is an incredibly important driver of the industry and necessary for relationships to be formed, maintained and developed. The stimulating program of workshops, led by representatives from Meta, Bain, TripAdvisor, ACI, Dufry, India and APTRA Exchange will also offer the opportunity to learn about how recent developments and trends might impact the travel retail business. We are very much looking forward to bringing such a prestigious event to the region once again.”
