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.

“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.”
