INTERNATIONAL. Welcome to the latest issue of The Moodie Davitt e-Zine. We present a special report on The Moodies – the airport and travel retail digital media awards – which are now in their fifth year.

We profile the winners and present judges’ comments, images, videos and social media reaction as we celebrate best practice in social and digital media among the airport and wider travel retail community.

In a second special report, we assess the state of play in Latin America ahead of the first Summit of the Americas, held jointly by IAADFS and ASUTIL. The spotlight is on Dufry, Motta Internacional and Siñeriz Shopping.

Elsewhere in the issue, Martin Moodie speaks to Maureen Davis and David Pietrzak of Duty Free Caribbean (Holdings) about the past, present and future of Cave Shepherd. It is more than just a department store they say; the enterprise represents the heart and soul of the island of Barbados.

We again recognise excellence in customer service in The Front Line, in association with Copper Dog. Andrea di Pietrantonio is a sales assistant at Heinemann Duty Free in Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport, and is passionate about regional products and particularly wine.

In The Foodie Report, Caviar House & Prunier is offering a new kind of Experience at Frankfurt Airport as the company marries the worlds of retail and fine dining in a daring and delicious fashion.

We also assess the results of Barcelona El Prat Airport’s food & beverage tenders in terminals 1 and 2 and discover how Lagardère Travel Retail is taking travellers’ senses on a world tour.

Please enjoy this edition of The Moodie Davitt e-Zine with our compliments.
