TFWA China delegate numbers rise

08 March, 2019

The fourth TFWA China’s Century Conference gathered 418 delegates at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Haitang Bay on the island of Hainan.

This figure is up from 412 recorded at the last event held in 2017. The TFWA One2one service added further value for delegates, with 115 meetings taking place during the week.

The conference was co-hosted by the Departments of Commerce and Finance of Hainan Province, with the country’s leading travel retailer China Duty Free Group as main sponsor.

TFWA president Alain Maingreaud said: “The fourth edition of our China event proved to be one of the best yet, thanks to the support of our hosts and sponsors, and to the excellent contributions of our invited speakers. 

“Our sincere thanks to them and to all our delegates for joining us in Hainan, one of our industry’s most important sales locations.” 

Haitang Bay, near Sanya, is home to the CDF Sanya International Duty Free Shopping Complex, the world’s largest duty free shopping centre.
