The TFWA World Exhibition & Conference drew to a close last week with attendance increasing +6% to 6,812.

The visitors represented a total of 3,031 companies while the total number of visiting operators and landlords, a key category essential to the success of the event, was up 6% compared to 2016 at 2,262.

TFWA’s new Digital Village attracted 33 exhibitors on its debut at the show, and 1,361 visitors.

Erik Juul-Mortensen, president of TFWA said: “It was an excellent way to convey to travellers and opinion-formers around the world the importance of duty free and travel retail.

“The support from various airports and operators has been extremely encouraging.”

The conference at the beginning of the week was attended by a record 1,643 participants and on the Wednesday morning, the Inflight Focus Workshop was attended by 195 delegates compared with 174 last year.
