TFWA launches Hosted Buyer ProgrammeBy Melita Kiely
The Tax Free World Association (TFWA) has created a Hosted Buyer Programme to support industry retailers who would like to be part of the World Exhibition & Conference in Cannes, France, this year.
The TFWA World Exhibition & Conference is currently planned for 26-30 September 2021.
Retailers who register for the Hosted Buyer Programme will receive help from TFWA to meet the accommodation costs of buyers and category managers attending this year’s event.
TFWA said it was continuing to monitor the Covid-19 situation worldwide to ensure the Cannes event can go ahead in a safe and secure setting.
Jaya Singh, TFWA president, said: “The recovery of our industry will depend on strong partnerships between stakeholders and we are determined that our events will play a vital role in bringing businesses closer together.
“We trust our Hosted Buyer Programme will provide much-needed support to our retailer partners, and enable both buyers and exhibitors to make the most of the networking opportunities that TFWA World Exhibition & Conference will offer.”
Last month, TFWA revealed a new online platform to complement the conference in Cannes.
The TFWA Asia Pacific Hainan Special Edition will take place virtually in June because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. See the May 2021 edition of The Spirits Business for an in-depth preview of the digital show.
