INTERNATIONAL. Welcome to the latest issue of The Moodie Davitt e-Zine. It has been a good year for Dubai Duty Free, with the retailer on target for close to US$1.9 billion in 2017 sales, according to Executive Vice Chairman & CEO Colm McLoughlin.

The company has demonstrated its robustness as it builds revenue and profitability following two turbulent years in which it has been sharply affected by the weakness of key currencies. McLoughlin reveals all about Dubai Duty Free’s latest developments and expansion plans. He also assesses what the introduction of excise tax and VAT in the UAE will mean for the business.

In the latest edition of Sense of Place, we explore how The Design Solution has captured a heady mix of Mexican colour, culture, heritage and energy at Dufry’s New Generation Store in Cancún International Airport.

App-based banking alternative Revolut appears in Travel Retail’s Positive Disruptors following its launch in the global duty free market.

An augmented reality promotion, two fantastic festive pop-ups, and a canine collaboration feature in our regular look at the industry’s best new launches, activations and openings.

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