INTERNATIONAL. Many emerging, family- and independently-owned brand houses, some new to the channel, are seizing the chance to meet the world’s leading travel retailers and their buying teams at the inaugural Moodie Davitt Virtual Travel Retail Expo on 12-16 October.

They are being drawn by the combination of a top-quality digital showcase offering multiple interactive touchpoints and unlimited brand information display, all combined in a dedicated Expo and Media support package for smaller brands. A stellar visitor audience comprising travel retail and airport executives is promised. Companies that have not yet signed up for what will be the defining travel retail event of 2020 still have the opportunity to join them (see below).

As reported, the unique five-day ‘live’ Expo, followed by a 30-day showcase (click here to register) features a star-studded series of activities, including a Symposium, category workshops and a new consumer research initiative.

The event offers a range of Virtual Stands at accessible price levels, each tailored to clients’ requirements

The list of smaller players and/or family and independently owned exhibitors includes Long Haul Spa, Baroque & Rose (beauty & wellness); Chase Distillery, Choya Umeshu, Loch Lomond Group, Walsh Whiskey, Lough Ree Distillery, Wild Tiger Beverages and Santa Margherita (spirits & wines); Camicissima, Diamanti per Tutti, Bravo Fashion and Happy Socks (fashion & accessories); Loacker, Butlers and Niederegger (confectionery); and Goodflow and Nuwave Channel Partners (multiple brands). More will be named shortly.
