INTERNATIONAL. Welcome to The Moodie Davitt e-Zine – Travel Retail’s Lookbook. In this last issue of 2018, we present our review of the year, featuring the leading stories, openings, key campaigns and events across the travel retail world in words, images and video.
Turbulent external factors – such as fears of a cooling of the Chinese economy and the ongoing Brexit situation – will continue to create a difficult trading environment in 2019. But the travel retail industry is resilient and there are many memorable moments from 2018 to reflect on.
Elsewhere in the issue, we present a special report on airport wellbeing services. There has been a definite increase in demand for such services in recent times and airports are adapting, with spas and wellness centres becoming more commonplace.
We spoke to airports, spa & wellness service providers and brands about the channel’s potential and where it fits into the airport commercial mix.
As it is the final issue of the year we also salute the Front Line heroes who have featured in our regular column during 2018, and reveal the best and worst stock market performers of the year in Stock Watch.
In The Foodie Report, multidisciplinary firm BCV Architecture + Interior Co-Founding Principal Chris von Eckartsberg discusses the importance of authenticity and Sense of Place in redefining airport food & beverage experiences for the modern traveller.
Please enjoy this edition of The Moodie Davitt e-Zine with our compliments.
