TFWA confirms 100 exhibitors for CannesBy Melita Kiely
More than 100 exhibitors are already confirmed for the Tax Free World Association (TFWA) World Exhibition & Conference in Cannes this October.
The TFWA World Exhibition & Conference will be returning to Cannes, France, from 24-28 October, Covid-19 pandemic permitting.
More than 100 ‘leading brands’ have already signed up to exhibit at the annual event, which was cancelled in 2020 due to the coronavirus crisis.
Spirits producers will include Brown-Forman and Moët Hennessy.
Jaya Singh, TFWA president, said: “We are seeing strong momentum in the growing number of exhibitors, and these latest additions will further bolster the already impressive line-up of brands planning to join us.
“Only by working together as a single joined-up industry can we hope to overcome the challenges that we currently face.
“TFWA World Exhibition & Conference will offer a sound platform for duty free and travel retail professionals to learn about the latest market developments and innovative strategies that will steer us towards a more positive and prosperous future.”
TFWA moved the dates for this year’s conference to the end of October to allow plenty of time to see an improvement in the Covid-19 pandemic situation in Europe and further afield.
The association also said that it has seen a ‘very positive’ response to its Hosted Buyer Programme.
