The Trinity Forum is the world’s most influential airport commercial revenues conference. It was launched in 2003 and has grown from strength-to-strength with each edition. The most recent event, which was held in Shanghai, saw record attendance and served as proof to the importance that all sectors of the industry place on the forum, which champions collaboration, innovation and excellence, debates key issues and questions industry shortcomings.
Moodie said they have exciting plans for the forum in 2019, including an extended focus on food and beverage, as well as changing the face of airport retail and other consumer services.
Our hosts for next year’s Trinity Forum have constantly pushed the boundaries of retail excellence, innovation and customer service. We look forward to working closely with our hosts and co-organisers, and to bring together industry leaders and thought leaders from across the globe.’
