Over 500 exhibitors are set to take part in this year’s event, with those making their debut including Chile’s Concha Y Toro, Champagne Lanson and Hunter Laing.

TFWA’s Innovation Lab, held in partnership with Alibaba’s travel brand Fliggy, will return again this year, featuring 28 forward-thinking companies showcasing their latest products and ideas, including those in the digital and mobile technology, sustainability and CSR sectors. A number of global brands, including Diageo and Cartier, will also be showcasing their new releases.

The lab will run from 1 October to midday on 4 October in a special tented area facing the Majestic Beach. It will start at 9am with a press breakfast, with an innovation in action workshop also scheduled for the same day at the Majestic Hotel, Salon Croisette.

Alain Maingreaud, TFWA president, said: “From the growth of digital technology to increasing demand for more sustainable practices, the duty free and travel retail industry is undergoing a number of significant changes that will greatly impact our business in the coming years.

“Exhibitors joining us at the TFWA World Exhibition & Conference and TFWA Innovation Lab will offer a window into the trends, tools and services that will enable all industry stakeholders to prepare for this transformation and help them better serve the future needs of the international traveller.”
