By Jas Ryat

Following the success of the first TFWA Digital Village in Cannes in 2017, TFWA announced the event will return in 2018. It will be open from Tuesday, October 2nd to noon on Friday, October 5th. The longer hours will allow operators, landlords and exhibitors more opportunity to visit the exhibition and conference program.

TFWA President Erik Juul-Mortensen commented: “I have long believed that our industry needs to embrace digital technology if we are to remain competitive, and the support we received for the first TFWA Digital Village proves that the time was right to launch such a forum.”

Visitors at TFWA are optimistic about the digital exhibition. Erin Lillis, Lacoste Asia Pacific Travel Retail Director described it as: “a great addition to the TFWA showcase”, while Clive Jones, Tourvest Chief Executive said: “I would like to see this grow, this is the future of the industry”

Candice Medina Tantoco, Marketing Manager at International Duty Free Shops Morocco said: “We’re in a market that is a bit behind in digital technology so this is a one stop shop and makes it easier for retailers.”

More detailed information about the program and format of the event will be available soon on the TFWA website.
