APTRA aims to build on the success of its industry luncheon held during TFWA Singapore with a networking evening in Hong Kong in partnership with Women in Travel Retail (WITR+).

Scheduled for Wednesday 2 August (17:30 – 20:30), the ‘Summer in the City’ event will take place at Michelin-starred restaurant Duddell’s, which hosted the evening in September 2021 and attracted 100 people.

Summer in the City is open to all APTRA and WITR+ members – and anyone else in the industry – and includes fund raising for Koma Karanth Foundation, the nominated charity of WITR+.

Guests can attend the non-profit evening for $100 per head, which covers costs and includes Duddell’s renowned dum sim and beverages.

Places are limited to 100, available on a first-come, first-served basis, and can be booked at the following: [email protected].

Sunil Tuli, President of APTRA & Group CEO King Power Group (Hong Kong) commented: “Hong Kong is a second home to APTRA with so many of our members and the wider travel retail industry based here, so it’s a natural choice for our Summer in the City evening.

“After such an enthusiastic response to the APTRA Lunch in Singapore we’re looking forward to bringing people together with WITR+, which is led in North Asia by APTRA board member, Erin Lillis.

“WITR+ does a fantastic job in raising funds for its charity of the year at events held around the world. We are happy to support the vital work of this year’s charity, Koma Karanth Foundation, in supporting and facilitating self-sufficiency for under-privileged women in the Philippines and the positive ripples that creates in their families and community, now and for future generations.”
