By Luke Barras-hill |

The TRBusiness February e-zine featuring the tobacco and cigars report, including nicotine alternatives and shisha, is now available to view [click the cover below].

In a rare and exclusive interview, Clive Jones, Chief Executive Officer of inflight concessionaire and airport duty free operator Tourvest Retail Services, talks business transformation; from digitisation and marketing to new contracts, against the backdrop of an evolving inflight retail market.

Inside, you’ll find a 16-page tobacco and cigars report, including nicotine alternatives and shisha, brimming with influential data, timely reporting and astute commentary from leading stakeholders on the growth drivers of the business and the regulatory pressures it continues to face.

The report also carries a dedicated segment on cigars, which explores the avenues to exploiting new purchase occasions via shrewd approaches to assortment and category management by product and region, and details how the power of staff engagement is helping to harness consumer demand. Meanwhile, you can learn about the latest travel retail forays for Al Fakher and Mazaya in the shisha section.

In focus: China and Japan

We also take a regional view across China and Japan to establish how the former’s recent relaxation of outbound travel restrictions is helping to shape the fortunes of DF&TR, with insights from influential travel retail and airport operators.

Plus, don’t miss your usual eclectic mix of the latest news, opinion and regular food and sustainability spotlights.

TRBusiness is also delighted to introduce for the first time in its e-zine the Travel Retail Confidence Tracker, an extension of the revered annual Global Industry Survey.

The TRBusiness Travel Retail Confidence Tracker has been designed to provide a snapshot of confidence levels among duty free and travel retail industry stakeholders – and we’re inviting all our readers to share their views in the flash poll.

As usual, do ensure you interact with the ‘Plus’ and ‘Play’ buttons as you navigate the e-zine to access immersive video and multimedia content.

Please enjoy this February e-zine with our compliments.
