“The increasing number of leading brands and retailers that have confirmed their participation in the 2023 TFWA World Exhibition & Conference is very encouraging, and the list continues to grow," said Erik Juul-Mortensen, TFWA President. "Both the quantity and quality of these organizations only increase our confidence in the success of this year’s event. It is gratifying to see familiar names of those who have been long-term attendees, alongside many first-time exhibitors and visitors. TFWA World Exhibition & Conference continues to prove to be an unmissable event for duty free and travel retail and we are very much looking forward to welcoming delegates to Cannes once again."
