Counterfeiting, fraud, and intellectual property theft cause substantial societal harm and result in significant annual losses for the global duty-and tax-free industry.
These criminal activities also impact legitimate businesses, including those within the duty-free and travel retail industry, which operates one of the most tightly controlled and transparent supply chains in the world. Additionally, our industry suffers reputational damage when illicit goods are fraudulently labeled as 'duty-free,' which has become a global problem for many of the products we sell.
This important workshop will explain the objectives of the Duty Free Trusted, Transparent, Secure campaign, which has gained the support of several leading retailers and brands. Delegates in Cannes can lend their support to this cause.
Speakers include: 01 Sarah Branquinho, President, Duty Free World Council 02 Nuno Amaral, Chief Operations and Business Development Officer, Aer Rianta International 03 Thabet Musleh, Senior Vice President, Qatar Duty Free 04 Lucio Rossetto, Chief Business Officer, Lagardère Travel Retail 05 Michael Schmidt, Senior Vice President - Retail, Dubai Duty Free
