Asia Pacific Travel Retail Association (APTRA) has announced it will host a two-day conference in the first quarter of next year dedicated to the Indian travel retail market and growing importance of the outbound Indian consumer.

The conference will be held from 20-21 March at the Pullman New Delhi Aerocity hotel and is expected to feature several eminent leaders from travel retail and the wider aviation and tourism sector.

They will contribute towards an examination of the dynamics of one of the industry’s fastest-developing markets and its growing influence in shaping the future of travel retail globally.

APTRA says that further details, including the opening of registration and information on a special accommodation rate, will be shared next week (w/c 11 December).

Sunil Tuli, President of APTRA and Group Chief Executive King Power Group (Hong Kong), said: “APTRA is excited to bring this important event to the travel retail industry in 2024. India is a tremendous market for our industry, with unrivalled pace, performance and potential. The Indian traveller is premiumising with new preferences on where and why they choose to travel and that is influencing how they shop abroad in travel retail.

“APTRA’s conference will shine the spotlight on one of the most important travel retail markets where brands, retailers, distributors, food & beverage operators and others are keen to maximise the opportunity. In attending the APTRA conference delegates will benefit from a deeper understanding of current and future dynamics while also building their network with Indian operators and the wider aviation industry.”
