The 2021 TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference will be held in Sanya, Hainan.

In light of the current situation in Asia, and the rapid development of the offshore duty free sector despite the ongoing crisis, the TFWA Management Committee decided at its meeting this morning that the 2021 TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference will be held in Sanya, Hainan. The event will take place in May. 
The exhibition and conference will combine physical and strong digital elements, and will be comprised of three components:

  • Discovery – a chance to explore new products and the latest trends, online or physically
  • Networking – the opportunity to reconnect with business partners live, and via e-meetings and events 
  • Learning – a high quality programme including a conference and workshops 

“Hainan, as a dynamic and fast evolving part of China and a centre of recovery in our business, is the perfect location for this, the first chance for us to come together once again as an industry. I'm sure that you will welcome this opportunity as much as I do, as we begin what we hope will be a fresh start for duty free and travel retail", said TFWA President Alain Maingreaud.
