INTERNATIONAL. Some great prizes are on offer to retailers and airports visiting exhibitors at the inaugural Moodie Davitt Virtual Travel Retail Expo, which concludes tomorrow (16 October).

As part of the Virtual Expo platform, a running ‘Leaderboard’ sits on the top of the site, based on how intensively a visitor has engaged with exhibitors based on several criteria (see table) below.

Our competition is open to retailers and airport executive visitors.

The following great prizes are among those on offer:

          • A bottle of Bowmore Mizunara Cask Finish. This is a seriously amazing liquid and currently on resale for between US$1,800 and US$2,100. It will surely increase further in value based on current auction prices and the rising value of the Bowmore Islay whisky brand under the careful nurturing of brand owners Beam Suntory (Wines, Spirits & Beer Hall). See for details.
          • Courtesy of, two pairs of 2 return flights from Kuala Lumpur to Bangkok available for the next one year (i.e. two separate prizes).
          • 1x luxury beauty gift set courtesy of Shiseido Travel Retail (Beauty & Wellbeing Hall)
          • Courtesy of Duty Free Global (Wines, Spirits & Beer Hall): A bottle of Scarabus Islay Single Malt and a bottle of Gunpowder Gin Special Ceramic edition (i.e. two separate prizes)
          • 1x Ray-Ban sunglasses, courtesy of Luxottica and their Virtual Try-On app (Sunglasses Hall)

    All prizes have been kindly donated by our Virtual Expo partners, each of whom has enjoyed a hugely successful week, plus, whose CEO Karen Chan (below) delivered such a brilliant presentation on Monday in the Knowledge Hub
