IAADFS 2023 fair moves to new datesBy Alice Brooker
The International Association of Airport and Duty Free Stores (IAADFS) has revised its dates for the 2023 Summit of the Americas show.
The 2023 iteration of the event was going to originally take place on 18-21 April 2023.
It will now be held from 16-19 April 2023 at the Palm Beach County Convention Centre in West Palm Beach, Florida, US.
“When we originally booked this event with the city of West Palm Beach back in 2019, our preferred Sunday to Wednesday pattern was not available, but we recently were made aware of updated availability,” commented IAADFS president and chief executive officer Michael Payne.
The revised 2023 Summit dates of 16-19 April return the event to the traditional day schedule from previous years, with the opening reception on the Sunday, and with the exhibit booths and private rooms open on the Monday through to the Wednesday.
Payne added: “This shift of dates to our traditional day pattern restores consistency and probably will eliminate confusion for some of the attendees who have been coming to our event for many years and are used to this Sunday to Wednesday pattern.”
The space request process for the 2023 Summit of the Americas will begin soon, with registration and housing anticipated to open in September.
In April, the 2022 IAADFS Summit of the Americas was held in the same location.
