ASUTIL finalises conference agenda

By Doug Newhouse |

The Asociación Sudamericana de Tiendas Libres (ASUTIL) has issued a brief statement on the programme for its forthcoming conference in Mexico City (June 4-7).


This year’s event – ‘Strengthening the Future’ – will feature several interesting individuals – some new and some familiar. Peter Mohn, Owner and CEO of M1nd-Set, the Swiss-based Travel Retail Consumer Insights company will address the audience, along with Esteban Walther, Marketing Director, Google, Latin America with =his presentation entitled intriguingly, ‘The Next Twenty Years’.


The association has also managed to secure the presence of the very experienced Julian Díaz, CEO of Dufry – the most successful DF&TR operator in the South American region. His presentation is entitled ‘Present and Future of the Industry’.


Julian Díaz, CEO of Dufry will look forward and backwards at the evolution of the industry.


Two familiar faces will then round off the conference with the highly knowledgeable economist Carlos Melconian, Director, M&S Consultores, Argentina, talking about ‘2014 and the Story Continues’ and ACI Canada’s Director Economics & Programme Development Rafael Echevarne delivering ACI’s Report on Airports in Latam.


As reported, the event is taking place on June 4-7 at the Hilton Mexico City Reforma Hotel, with the theme ‘Strengthening the Future’ and will coincide with the association’s 20th anniversary.


The association claims that more than 300 delegates attended its conference, last year in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. This year it is expecting even more attendees. For more information click here:
