With less than two weeks to go before the TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference in Singapore (11th-15th May), over 3,200 visitors from 865 companies have already registered to attend the event, an increase of 12% YOY.
The duty free & travel retail category has registered the highest growth, so far; an increase of 23% on last year, with almost 1,500 who have pre-registered.
257 companies have confirmed to showcase their products over 8,400sq m of net exhibition space at Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Center.
“The registration area has been enlarged and moved to level 1, which should mean no queues and quick access to the exhibition hall on the same level and on into the rest of the exhibition,” says the trade body.
