TFWA online conference highlights TR recovery in ChinaBy Owen Bellwood
The Tax Free World Association (TFWA) will host a three-day virtual conference in December focusing on the recovery of duty free and travel retail in China.
Taking place between 1 and 3 December, the event will be the second instalment in a series of digital workshops announced by the TFWA to help the duty free and travel retail industry bounce back from the impact of Covid-19.
The China Reborn events will feature a range of seminar sessions offering insights on the recovery of the industry in China, including the latest traffic data, market developments, changes to shopping habits and online integrations across the market.
As part of the digital conference, TFWA’s One2One meeting service will be available, linking brands, retailers, airports and other decision-makers in China together. The platform will offer attendees the opportunity to reconnect and network ahead of 2021.
Alain Maingreaud, president of the TFWA, said: “TFWA is delighted to restate its commitment to the Chinese market through the launch of this unique event, which will allow our members to reconnect with key retailers and other stakeholders at a time of change.
“A re-emergent Chinese market will play a central role in the rebirth of the global industry, and we are looking forward to working with our partners in China on this initiative.”
The TFWA 2020 World Exhibition and Conference in Cannes, France, was cancelled due to the Covid-19 crisis.
