INTERNATIONAL. Welcome to The Moodie Davitt e-Zine – Travel Retail’s Lookbook. In this issue, we look back on a memorable Airport Food & Beverage (FAB) Conference & Awards, held this year in Helsinki.

The annual awards celebrated the best in travel food & beverage, with many outstanding winners, led by Toronto Pearson International Airport, which captured the Airport Food & Beverage Offer of the Year award. A big highlight too was the Team Member of the Year accolade, which memorably went to SSP America’s D’Angelo Charles.

This year’s FAB Conference served up some fascinating talking points as speakers debated the industry’s latest trends and innovations and looked to the future.

Elsewhere in this issue we present a special report on travel retail in the Nordics. Nordic Travel Retail Group Chair Eva Rehnström discusses the big issues facing the industry while the spotlight is also on Baltic ferry and short-cruise company Tallink.

We are also on location at Copenhagen Airport, where Gebr Heinemann’s new and enlarged 2,600sq m main store offers an illuminating example of how design interacts with the commercial requirements of a duty free store.

Please enjoy this edition of the new-look Moodie Davitt e-Zine with our compliments.
