INTERNATIONAL. Welcome to The Moodie Davitt eZine, Travel Retail’s LookBook.
Our annual Top Travel Retailers report is always eagerly anticipated, and especially so after a year of recovery in many regions in 2022. In this issue we preview the top five – the full report will appear in our July/August Magazine in coming days – with China Duty Free Group once more the global number one measured by retail turnover.
Dufry Group was among the big international players that surged back last year, buoyed by travel recovery across its core markets, resuming its position as number two. Lotte Duty Free, Lagardère Travel Retail and The Shilla Duty Free make up our top five. The full rankings with commentary will appear shortly.
Also in this edition we feature more details and comment from Lotte Duty Free’s landmark Grand Opening at Melbourne Airport, where we paid a visit on 13 July.
You will find our latest Through the Red Door and High Flyers columns, in association with Elizabeth Arden and ARI respectively, and our choice of recent highlight launches, campaigns and openings from across the world of travel retail.
Please enjoy this edition with our compliments. ✈
