IAADFS opens registration for Summit of the Americas 2023
The International Association of Airport and Duty Free Stores (IAADFS) has announced that registration and housing are now open for the 2023 Summit of the Americas, which will be held from April 16 to 19, 2023, at the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The 2023 Summit will return to its traditional format featuring an exhibit hall and a limited number of private exhibit/meeting rooms. A more streamlined education program will include sessions each morning and afternoon on Monday and Tuesday.
Morning sessions will run prior to the opening of the exhibit hall, reducing the amount of time that attendees must select between attending sessions versus attending meetings, and increasing the amount of time that exhibitors may attend sessions. IAADFS has already received space requests from prominent suppliers, including companies like Bacardi, Brown-Forman, Diageo, JTI Travel Retail Americas, Mondelez, Pernod Ricard, RJ ReynoldsTobacco, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, WEBB Banks, Worldclassbrands, and many others – with the list continuing to grow.
“We are looking forward to being back in West Palm Beach, Florida, for our second year at this new venue. We appreciate the early commitments we've received from key suppliers, and we expect to build upon the strong presence from key duty free and travel retail buyers that we witnessed from our 2022 event. These commitments underscore the importance of the industry in the Americas and Caribbean,” comments Michael Payne, President & CEO, IAADFS.
