REVEALED: Travel Retail Awards AsPac winners

By Luke Barras-hill |

The Travel Retail Awards: Asia Pacific is the new regional counterpart to the acclaimed Global Travel Retail Awards.

The power of region-focused innovation was uniquely spotlighted today (21 June) as TRBusiness and m1nd-set crowned the winners of the much-anticipated consumer-voted Travel Retail Awards: Asia Pacific during a virtual awards ceremony (09:15 CET).

Winners were selected across 12 product categories and six airport categories [click below to watch a repeat of the Travel Retail Awards: Asia Pacific; for a full list of the winners and finalists, see footer].

All companies that entered the 2020 Global Travel Retail Awards were enrolled in the 2021 Travel Retail Awards: Asia Pacific.

The new regional flanker to the hugely successful Global Travel Retail Awards provides a much-needed boost to the DF&TR industry as it charts an unpredictable recovery path.

Attendees to the ceremony enjoyed unique consumer insights courtesy of 2,000 international travellers across the Asia Pacific region sourced from m1nd-set’s unique database.

Travellers voted on their favourite products within the categories in a demonstration of the buying inclinations of Asia Pacific consumers compared with their global counterparts.
