In 2016, the show attracted 2,905 visitors – including 660 from Singapore, 223 from Korea, 197 from Hong Kong and 106 from China – 37% of whom were reportedly key buyers.

The event will give exhibitors the opportunity to network with senior executives from cruise and ferry companies as well those from Asia Pacific airports and airlines.

Commenting on the event, TFWA president Erik Juul-Mortensen said: “We are delighted that the TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference is continuing to go from strength to strength, and our exhibitor numbers suggest we are on track for a very successful week.

“These figures also reflect the importance of the Asia Pacific region to our industry and underscore how it is an essential market for all brands in the duty free and travel retail sector.”
