TFWA confirms Cannes exhibition dates
The Tax Free World Association (TFWA) has confirmed its 2023 programme of events – including the return of the Cannes exhibition in October.
The TFWA World Exhibition and Conference will return to Cannes in France from 1-5 October.
Last year’s duty free and travel retail event welcomed 6,000 delegates from around the world.
The first in-person show in the TFWA’s calendar will be the TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference, which will take place at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore from 7-11 May.
For the first time in five years, the Asutil Conference (managed by TFWA) will return to South America. The show will take place from 7-8 June at the Hotel Hilton in Puerto Madero, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Erik Juul-Mortensen, TFWA president, said: “The industry’s response to our events last year was incredibly positive, and the enthusiasm to conduct business face-to-face and meet with friends and industry colleagues was very evident.
“We are confident the range of events scheduled for 2023, both in-person and online, will provide a useful springboard for our members and business partners as they prepare for what promises to be a year of considerable opportunity for our industry.”
The 2023 line-up of events will also include a full programme of webinars, which will be hosted on TFWA 365 throughout the year.
The first online event is due to take place on 9 February and will focus on the outlook for travel during the first half of the year.
