Travel Retail Question Time: Ask ETRC’s Julie Lassaigne your questions

By Charlotte Turner |

TR-Question-Time-Julie-Lassaigne-with-kitkat-leadFollowing the successful launch of ‘Travel Retail Question Time’ – and the filming of the first two episodes in the series which can be found here and here – TRBusiness and Nestlé International Travel Retail are delighted to announce that you can now submit your questions for our next interviewee; Julie Lassaigne ETRC Secretary General 


Please submit your question here. The deadline for submission will be Wednesday 7 August.


As reported, the new video series provides a unique open forum for the industry in a first-of-its-kind film format.


Over the course of this year, TRBusiness is offering readers the chance to put their questions to a highly influential member of the duty free & travel retail industry whilst we capture it all on camera.


Readers will submit the question they always wanted to ask, but never had the chance to. We will then shortlist the top 10 questions and these will be voted for, again by our readers.



Julie Lassaigne was appointed European Travel Retail Confederation (ETRC) Secretary General, in February this year.


The five most popular questions – as voted for by our readers – will then be put to our selected interviewee, who in this case is Julie Lassaigne.


The extremely knowledgable and well-respected Lassaigne was appointed European Travel Retail Confederation (ETRC) Secretary General, in February this year.


Since joining ETRC in 2013, Lassainge has been responsible for leading activities relating to product information for consumers, alcohol policy, air passenger rights and transport security and managed relations with ETRC members and EU institutions.


She also organises the ETRC Annual Business Forum.



The Travel Retail Question Time initiative is supported by Nestlé International Travel Retail.


“When TRBusiness approached us with the Travel Retail Question Time concept, where readers are asked to pose the questions that they feel are relevant to a key industry stakeholder, we were immediately interested,” says Stewart Dryburgh, Nestlé International Travel Retail General Manager.


“With the tag-line – ‘have a break from the usual topics’ – this idea was a natural fit for our #1 brand KITKAT as well as a great idea to stimulate discussion and debate in the industry.


“As such we’re delighted to support this project and hope it brings TRBusiness readers great value.”
