IAADFS adds education session
The 2016 IAADFS Duty Free Show of the Americas will feature an education session for the first time.
Set to take place from 3-6 April at the Orlando World Center Marriot, Florida, the show features a three-day exhibition, social and sports activities, and now the half-day education session on the Monday morning.
Speakers include Angela Gittens, Airports Council International director general, and Peter Mohn, owner and CEO of industry analyst, m1nd-set.
Gittens will give an overview of the state of the travel industry and the ramifications for travel retail and duty free, while Mohn will share findings of new surveys looking at traveller purchasing habits in North America and the Caribbean.
Mohn will follow up his presentation with a more in-depth workshop taking place on the Tuesday morning.
According to IAADFS organisers, early indicators point to a “very successful” 2016 show, with around 95%of the available exhibition space booked.
While “most” 2015 exhibitors have rebooked, new spirits names include Global Premium Vodka, Minhas Micro Distillery and Brewing, and United States Distilled Products.
“We are fortunate to have such a dedicated and supportive base of exhibitors returning year after year,” said IAADFS executive director, Michael Payne.
“At the same time, it is great to welcome so many new exhibitors whose unique products and services add value to what is already a very vibrant industry.”
