INTERNATIONAL. Welcome to The Moodie Davitt eZine – Travel Retail’s Lookbook. In this issue we present edited highlights of our Top 25 Travel Retailers report, which will appear in full in The Moodie Davitt Magazine very soon.
Clearly 2020 will tell a very different story but as the channel begins a slow and sometimes painful recovery, the 2019 sales numbers serve an important purpose in outlining the key players. Dufry is market leader for another year, with sales of over €8 billion, followed by Lotte Duty Free, The Shilla Duty Free, China Duty Free Group (CDFG) and Lagardère Travel Retail. We bring you comment & analysis, focused on these top five players, in this edition.
We also feature up-to-date travel data and research as the business continues to gradually return; this includes a survey of consumer opinion about flying, with positives and negatives for the trade.
We run the latest in a series of columns from experiential agency CircleSquare, outlining the power of the omnichannel opportunity in travel retail.
In our regular Sight Lines eZine, we talk to JCDecaux North America about maximising the media opportunity at New York LaGuardia Terminal B, and Compass International Media chief Philip Weake assesses how the industry can emerge from crisis.
In The FAB eZine, we examine how Dallas Fort Worth International Airport is putting partnership principles into action.
You’ll also find our ever-engaging Sense of Place and Positive Disruptors columns, while in Duty Calls, we publish extracts from our inspiring ‘Love in the time of crisis’ column.
Please enjoy this edition of The Moodie Davitt eZine with our compliments.
