INTERNATIONAL. Welcome to The Moodie Davitt eZine, Travel Retail’s Lookbook.
In this issue we examine the future of the global luxury goods industry, which will be driven principally by Chinese consumers and by ecommerce, according to a new report from Bain & Company. We feature edited highlights from this important study, which also looks at the likely role of travel and travel retail in driving luxury goods sales over the coming years.
In the Experiential Column, CircleSquare explores brand strategies for targeting the Chinese travelling consumer, while our content partner Jing Daily explains how the COVID-19 pandemic has changed Chinese consumption and touches upon trends that are shaping the Chinese economy today.
We examine the latest developments in the fledgling land border business in Brazil, where nine new stores will open by February, and where an increase in allowances for Brazilian consumers offers a potentially big boost.
We look at what a part-vaccinated world means for travel in the company of aviation consultant Simpliflying, and at how the map of the world’s most connected cities has been transformed by COVID-19, through a new report from IATA.
Other highlights include our regular Sight Lines eZine and our Sense of Place and Positive Disruptors columns, in partnership with ARI and Tito’s Handmade Vodka respectively.
Please enjoy this edition with our compliments.
