INTERNATIONAL. Welcome to The Moodie Report Print Edition for January/February 2012, available in full – editorial and advertising and with no subscription fee – through our unique online digital and iPad-compatible format.
This edition enjoys bonus distribution at The Trinity Forum – the world’s leading airport commercial revenues event – which takes places in Seoul on 13-15 February. Fittingly, we carry a major interview with Incheon International Airport Corp President & CEO Lee Chae-Wook (CW Lee), whose company hosts the conference. Lee talks to us about consumers, culture and capturing Chinese spend at the South Korean gateway.
We also preview one of the most exciting developments of the year ahead in European airport retail: the opening in June of Berlin Brandenburg Airport Willy Brandt. We talk to Berlin Airports about its vision for the new airport, where all air traffic serving Germany’s capital will be gathered under one roof for the first time – and whose 9,000sq m central Market Place is set to wow visitors.
We go on location to Zürich Airport too, and take a walk through The Nuance Group’s new Departures duty free stores there, as the Swiss airport’s commercial transformation continues at pace. And from Malaysia we assess KLIA2, the new dedicated budget terminal at Kuala Lumpur International Airport. This, says Malaysia Airports, will be a benchmark for the airports business in Asia Pacific, as a major tendering exercise for the key commercial concessions takes shape.
We profile two leading European retailers – Schiphol Airport Retail and Inflight Service – and question them about their goals and ambitions. Plus there’s much, much more, including our Review of the Year for 2011, alongside our annual choice of People of the Year.
Our Print Edition can be saved for offline (and onboard) reading and is fully searchable, among a host of other user-friendly features designed to make digital reading easy. And because it is e-mailed (free of charge) to our entire e-database, The Moodie Report Print Edition enjoys unrivalled market penetration. It is also the clear market leader in advertising terms among travel retail magazines.
Please enjoy The Moodie Report Print Edition with our compliments.
