New FTE World Airport Retailing Summit launched

Future Travel Experience (FTE) has launched the FTE World Airport Retailing Summit (WAR), an adventurous and energetic airport retail convention that aims to drive disruption in airport commercial approaches.

This event is co-located with FTE Ancillary – the world’s leading gathering of commercial airline executives, so for the first time ever we will bring together under one roof executives representing every type of industry stakeholder globally to help establish creative new ways of working together collaboratively to create more revenues for all to share in.

Following the pandemic the time is right to bring the world’s airports, and their partners, together to share best practice, new ideas and knowledge on scaling disruptive new approaches that drive new levels of conversion with passengers through digital means.

The event has been developed in close collaboration with senior executives from LHR, BUD, AKL, IST, VIE, MAGO & Vantage Airport Group and will take place from June 7 to 9 in Dublin, Ireland.

FTE Ancillary has its own advisory board of airline commercial leaders representing airlines such as Virgin Atlantic, Jetstar, Cebu Pacific, Cathay Pacific, Wizz Air, Swoop & AirAsia, whose input has been invaluable to ensure our focus, and output, is as strong as it can be.

The event will cover a wide range of topics under the theme of ‘Scaling Innovation’, championing some of the most exciting examples of innovation across the airport commercial realm, and provide a platform for some of the most progressive new approaches around the world to help inspire radical new business models between stakeholders, and new ways of thinking.
In special joint sessions, the FTE Airline Ancillary Conference and FTE World Airport Retailing Conference will provide unique platforms to discuss new all-stakeholder partnerships, a theme which will be tackled head-on in an Opening Keynote address by Robert Carey, President, Wizz Air.

Carey was also central to the FTE Business Model Transformation Think Tank last year, which came up with some key recommendations on how F&B and baggage could play important new roles in generating revenues for the industry going forward. – TradeArabia News Service
