The International Association of Airport and Duty Free Stores (IAADFS) is inviting delegates to register and book their accommodation for the 2024 Summit of the Americas.

The annual conference and exhibition will convene on 14-17 April 2024 at the Palm Beach Country Convention Center in West Palm Beach, Florida.

As reported, the 2023 Summit of the Americas in West Palm Beach attracted 1,178 visitors, a 34% year-on-year increase.

As has been the case in recent years, the format will permit suppliers to take space in the exhibit hall, while a limited number of private exhibit/meeting rooms will also be available.

‘Robust support’ to date

The conference kicks off on Monday 15 April as part of a programme that will be complemented by several valuable evening networking events. These will take place on Sunday 14 April, Monday 15 April and Tuesday 16 April.

IAADFS confirms ‘robust’ support for the event to date, with 2024 requests already at 80% of the final space figure in 2023.

Michael Payne, President and CEO, IAADFS said: “We appreciate the early and strong commitments we’ve been receiving from our supplier partners, and their responses coupled with the feedback we’ve received from the buyer community highlighting the vitality and importance of the duty free and travel retail industry in the Americas and Caribbean. We look forward to welcoming key buyers, suppliers and other valued industry stakeholders for the 2024 Summit of the Americas.”
