DFWC Webinar: 2021 – The Year of Recovery? to take place next month
The Duty Free World Council (DFWC) will host a webinar titled, 2021 – The Year of Recovery? to offer an update on the current state of the industry as we enter the new year. Following a similar format to the well-received iterations held last year, the webinar will feature estimated air traffic data for 2020 courtesy of ACI World. Updates on the most recent measures taken by the Council and all regional associations, and by TFWA, to garner support for the duty free industry through these exceptional challenges will also be provided.
The webinar will be held on Wednesday, February 3, from 14:00 – 15:30pm CET.
After an introduction by Sarah Branquinho, DFWC President, the keynote presentation will be given by Patrick Lucas, Director Economics, ACI World. The presidents of the industry’s regional associations will also present detailed updates on what is happening in their respective regions.
With regional breakdowns, the webinar will cover the status of air traffic globally and provide the most up-to-date forecasts from ACI World on the aviation recovery trajectory. Additionally, briefings will be shared on the efforts undertaken to ensure the importance of the duty free & travel retail sector to the broader travel & tourism, aviation and maritime industry ecosystems, which are widely understood by global, regional and national authorities, who are drawing up overall recovery plans.
