Market knowledge is about as important as deals at a trade fair. TFWA 20132 will offer early-risers the opportunity to attend two workshops this year at the Salon Croisette at the Majestic, just opposite the Palais.
Airline & Retailer workshop
On Tuesday 22 October (08:00-09:00), the Airline & Retailer workshop will take an in-depth look at the inflight retail market, with input from three of the channel’s most experienced executives. Lufthansa Worldshop’s Director of Sales & Marketing Brigitte Wolf will be joined by Jean-Luc Chassigneux who, as Managing Director of DutyFly Solutions, handles onboard duty-free sales for Air France, Iberia and others. The Chairman of 2012 DFNI Inflight Supplier of the Year Scorpio Worldwide, Stuart McGuire, will also speak.
Market Watch workshop
The Market Watch workshop (Wednesday 23 October, 08:00-09:00) will throw a critical eye at Turkey and Indonesia, two of the ‘CIVETS’ markets (Columbia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Egypt, Turkey and South Africa) tipped by many as the next generation of high-growth economies. Peter Harbison (Executive Chairman, CAPA Centre for Aviation) will analyse both countries’ airline landscapes while two experts (Setur Servis Turistik Business Development Manager Kadir Ishakoglu for Turkey and Agility Research & Strategy Managing Director Amrita Banta on Indonesia) will provide an insider’s view of the business, brands and consumers in their respective territories.
