Welcome to the iPad-compatible version of The Moodie Report Print Edition for October 2016, available in full – editorial and advertising – in our unique digital format.

This edition, also available in hard copy, coincides with the annual TFWA World Exhibition in Cannes, which begins on Sunday. In it you’ll find interviews, comment and analysis from around the world of travel retail.

We bring you a full in-depth report from The Trinity Forum, the world’s leading airport commercial revenues event, held last month in Mumbai, where the focus was on engaging with the consumer in the digital era.

As one of the year’s biggest and most eagerly anticipated duty free tenders looms at Hong Kong International, we examine how the airport authority has refashioned its core category retail concessions.

We hear from Aer Rianta International CEO Jack MacGowan, who discusses people, projects and the company’s progress as a retailer. In the Middle East, Dubai Duty Free Executive Vice Chairman & CEO Colm McLoughlin assesses how the company has protected profitability even amid a difficult trading environment.

We speak to China National Service Corporation President Robert Lee as the state-owned company takes advantage of post-arrival shopping regulations in China. And we are on location in Oslo, as Gebr Heinemann opens a ground-breaking new arrivals store.

There’s much more besides. We preview what DFS Group calls “a new global benchmark in the world of luxury department stores” with its latest opening in Venice – see MoodieDavittReport.com for the latest details.

We carry an airline focus too, as Inflight Sales Group Founder Jean-Marcel Rouff talks about seizing the Chinese opportunity after announcing a joint venture with China Sales Group. And we bring you two big Corporate Social Responsibility features, on The Estée Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Awareness drive and the latest developments – plus a call for aid – from the industry-funded Hand in Hand for Haiti campaign.

Elsewhere, ETRC President Sarah Branquinho examines the potential fallout for the industry from the UK’s decision to leave the European Union. And in an intriguing reversal of roles, Sydney Airport General Manager, Retail Glyn Williams turns interviewer and asks Martin Moodie about his life, influences and passions.

You’ll also find a major focus on luxury goods through our Category Insight supplement that accompanies the issue.

Please enjoy this October edition with our compliments.
