Over the course of this year, TRBusiness is offering readers the chance to put their questions to a highly influential member of the duty free & travel retail industry while we capture it all on camera.


James Prescott, Managing Director, Harding Retail.


Readers have already submitted their questions for James Prescott and we can now reveal the shortlist here.

You can now vote for your favourite questions here. The five questions with the most votes will be put to Prescott on film in 10 days’ time.

Prescott’s appearance on TRQT comes amid an extremely exciting period for the global cruise sector.

Voluminous growth in passenger numbers and vessels, the emergence of some truly novel and immersive approaches to onboard retail and a cacophony of new and exclusive brand activations are challenging the traditional travel retail ecosystem.

Harding Retail, which enjoys 20 cruise brand partnerships around the world with the likes of Carnival, P&O Cruises, Royal Caribbean Cruises, Marella Cruises, Fred Olson Cruise Lines, Cunard and Viking, enjoyed a fruitful 2018.



The Travel Retail Question Time initiative is supported by Nestlé International Travel Retail.

“When TRBusiness approached us with the Travel Retail Question Time concept, where readers are asked to pose the questions that they feel are relevant to a key industry stakeholder, we were immediately interested,” said Stewart Dryburgh, General Manager, Nestlé International Travel Retail.

“With the tag-line – ‘have a break from the usual topics’ – this idea was a natural fit for our #1 brand KITKAT as well as a great idea to stimulate discussion and debate in the industry.

“As such we’re delighted to support this project and hope it brings TRBusiness readers great value.”

Please vote for your favourite questions here. Voting will end on Tuesday 1 October.
