By Hibah Noor

The Gold Standard award winners were announced on November 5, during Frontier Duty Free Association's intimate gala dinner at the King Edward Hotel in Toronto, Canada.

The dinner followed an impressive opening cocktail (Nov. 4) with a productive first day (Nov. 5) according to suppliers and retailers.

“Value to all members remains the basis for the convention, now centered around the objectives of brand building, collaboration and growth. These concepts were woven into each change that is a part of the new convention,” says Tania Lee, Strategic Convention Committee Chair.
