France : TFWA World Exhibition & Conference remains in the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in Cannes

26th to 31st October 2014

TFWA World Exhibition & Conference, the annual event organised by and for the duty free and travel retail industry, will continue to be staged in the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in Cannes, France for at least the next three years.

The decision was made following a vote by the TFWA (Tax Free World Association) Management Committee at its meeting in Madrid in December.

The choice was based on the results of a survey of exhibitors and TFWA Members in 2013 in which Cannes emerged as the clear favourite.

Erik Juul-Mortensen, President TFWA, commented: “TFWA is pleased to be returning to Cannes for this our 30th year and for the next three years.

The management team has studied all the options very carefully, reviewing both positive and negative aspects of each venue, and Cannes has come out top once again !

The Palais des Festivals and Congresses has all the attributes of a fine venue with good quality exhibition space, a large conference hall, appropriate venues for networking activities – all set within an attractive seaside location with hotels and restaurants nearby.

We have also built excellent relationships with the City of Cannes, the Palais des Festivals and Congresses management team and with all our local partners over the years.”

The agreement to stage TFWA World Exhibition & Conference in the Palais des Festivals and Congresses covers a contract period of three years from 2015 to 2017 with an option on 2018 and 2019.

In response to requests from TFWA Members and delegates, the important decision has been made that with effect from 2016 the event will move to the first week of October. The dates for 2015-2017 are as follows: 19th-23rd October 2015, 3rd-7th October 2016 and 2nd-6th October 2017.

The 30th TFWA World Exhibition & Conference will take place in the Palais des Festivals and Congresses from 26th to 31st October 2014.
