Close-knit partnerships key to travel retail success for Time Products UK

By Faye Bartle |

Pete Ogley, the newly appointed CEO of Time Products UK, brings TRBusiness up to date on the company’s strategy for global travel retail, focussing on Sekonda, and why nurturing close-knit partnerships in the industry are key to its success.

In this video interview, filmed on location at the TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference in Singapore, Ogley explains why travel is a strategic pillar for the company, and one that’s seeing “real growth”.

“Europe has come back on board really quickly since the pandemic and Asia is starting to grow as well,” he told us.

As a case in point, the company has recently expanded its Sekonda ranges available with leading airline partners in the region, such as Vietnam Airlines and Kris Shop by Singapore Airlines.

Also new this year are airport partnerships with King Power in Hong Kong, Eraman in Malaysia and Jakarta Duty Free with Aer Rianta International, as well as with Hyderabad Duty Free in India.

Meeting duty free and travel retail industry contacts face-to-face at the Singapore summit is expected to play an important role in driving further expansion.

In our interview, Ogley goes on to discuss how Sekonda has been able to embed itself in travel due to its “great quality watches at really good value prices” and curated ranges for its partners in the channel.

All of this is backed up by the expertise of a dedicated, experienced team. Hit play to find out more.
