China Travel Retail (CTR), the conference and exhibition for brands, travel retail concessionaires, airports and airlines targeting Chinese travellers, has announced that it will be publishing exclusive weekly highlights of the “Consumer Behaviour in Airports” study in conjunction with JMG-Research, the travel retail consulting and market research company.
Every week from now until the conference in Shanghai on 23-25 July, CTR will publish relevant findings from JMG’s “Consumer Behaviour in Airports” study, providing delegates, exhibitors and sponsors with unique new insight into travel retail behaviour of Chinese consumers. In addition, key findings from this study will inform discussions at the conference itself.
Each weekly update will focus on a key travel retail category, such as Beauty Skin Care, Make-Up & Fragrances, Wine & Spirits, and Tobacco. The first instalment will be email to industry leaders and published online at www.chinatravelretail.com/insight on Tuesday 22nd May, where users can simply and immediately view the content by registering their interest.
Jeffrey O’Rourke, speaking on behalf of CTR event organisers Ink and Ink’s local Chinese partner GIS events said: “We are pleased to be able to share new insights into the buying habits of Chinese passengers at travel retail locations both inside China and at overseas airports. The market clearly needs more research, and this is especially timely given that airports representing over half of the Chinese market are already attending the China Travel Retail event. In addition, there are also a number of retailers and landlords from airports all over the world coming to Shanghai to better understand the market.”
