Social media has emerged as a key unofficial source of information in the digital age. As The Moodie Davitt Report steps up its mission to become ‘the KOL of B2B travel retail publishing’ (a phrase coined by leading Chinese WeChat platform Globuy), we are delighted to introduce a new weekly feature that curates some of the most exciting travel retail industry updates from the social media sphere – and touches on our own contributions.

This week on Instagram our President and Editorial Director Dermot Davitt was at the Palais des Versailles for Rémy Martin Cognac’s breathtaking #TeamUpforExcellence event.

Meanwhile, our Founder & Chairman Martin Moodie was on the other side of the world, touring the dazzling new Beijing Daxing International Airport with the China Duty Free Group.

Elsewhere, KLM takes a stylish step in a sustainable direction with its new ‘Jet Legs’ launch; while Yves Saint Laurent Beauté anticipates Halloween with some spooky beauty posts.

Finally, Malaysia Airports celebrated Deepavali with a bang through a series of colourful cultural events and performances.

Check out the social media highlights below…
