2023 Global Travel Retail Awards

TRBusiness and m1nd-set are delighted to announce the finalists in the 2023 Global Travel Retail Awards – congratulations to all those listed below!

Organised by TRBusiness and m1nd-set, the Travel Retail Awards is the duty free and travel retail industry’s only awards programme that’s voted for entirely by consumers.

This year’s edition attracted a 38% rise in the number of entries submitted, compared to 2022, with a bumper influx of product entries and an impressive number of consumer-conscious stakeholders being attracted by the refreshed lineup of promotion and CSR awards.

Finalists will soon be receiving their ‘Voted by Shoppers’ Finalist logos, which can be displayed on all promotional and marketing materials. Research by m1nd-set has shown that 22% of consumers are more likely to purchase a product displaying the ‘Voted by Shoppers’ Finalist logo.

Thank you to all those who entered. Remember – all entrants to the 2023 Global Travel Retail Awards will receive personalised written feedback from our panel of travel influencers, with a combined following of over one million.

The grand awards ceremony, at which the Highly Recommended and Winner accolades will be announced, is taking place once again in Cannes, this time at Hôtel Martinez on the evening of Tuesday 3 October to coincide with the TFWA World Exhibition & Conference. Early bird tickets are available to buy until 31 August 2023. Standard ticket pricing will apply thereafter. We are looking forward to hosting you for an evening to remember.
