SINGAPORE. The Moodie Davitt Report is to host a charity dinner on Saturday 11 May, the eve of the TFWA Asia Pacific Conference and Exhibition, in Singapore.

The fund-raising event will be themed ‘Duty Calls’. It is The Moodie Davitt Report’s third charity dinner in Asia, the company having hosted highly successful events in 2007 and 2012. It will be held at a centrally located venue in Singapore, to be named soon,

The fund-raising dinner is part of The Moodie Davitt Report’s Duty Calls campaign, which focused on travel retail’s many environmental and socially responsible initiatives around the globe, where people and the planet are the priority, says Michael Barrett.

The beneficiary of the event will also be named in coming days. “We are delighted to host our third charity fund-raising dinner in Asia,” said The Moodie Davitt Report Events & Corporate Social Responsibility Director Michael Barrett. “The event is in line with our commitment to giving back to the industry and to the community and will raise critical funds for those in need.

“We encourage travel retail executives to arrive in Singapore early for next year’s TFWA event and to join us in what we promise will be a wonderful evening.”

Duty Calls takes its name from a new Moodie Davitt Report campaign dedicated to Corporate Social Responsibility within travel retail.

“Via events such as the Singapore dinner, news, regular features and awareness campaigns, Duty Calls is focusing on the industry’s many commendable environmental and socially responsible initiatives around the globe, where people and the planet are the priority,” said Barrett.
