Welcome to the 2015 Duty Free Show of the Americas

Dear colleagues:

On behalf of IAADFS and the association’s Board of Directors, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2015 Duty Free Show of the Americas.

During this 47th anniversary edition of the Duty Free Show of the Americas, we have an exhibit hall containing nearly 200 exhibitors showing thousands of their latest products for the duty free and travel retail industry. This includes 35 companies that are exhibiting with us for the first time, so please look for their “New Exhibitor” ribbons and the “New Exhibitor” decals in the exhibit hall and help us give an especially warm welcome to these companies.

Sunday’s sports day program features our traditional golf and tennis tournaments, as well as a new 3K Fun Run/Fun Walk that benefits Escuela de la Calle, a charity that helps children in Guatemala. Sunday evening’s Opening Reception, which is open to all registered attendees, allows you to reconnect with colleagues prior to the opening of the Trademarket on Monday morning. Tuesday night’s Gala Evening will feature great food and entertainment prior to attendees moving to Club Americas to enjoy a live band and dancing. On Monday and Tuesday nights, Club Americas provides an escape for attendees to unwind after busy workdays in the Trademarket.

We extend our thanks to our exhibitors, sponsors, and attendees for their continued support of IAADFS and the Duty Free Show of the Americas. We appreciate that you have taken time out of your busy schedules to join us here in Orlando, and we trust that you will have a very productive show. Do not hesitate to contact a member of our staff should you need any assistance.

Best regards,

Alberto “Pancho” Motta Jr.
President, IAADFS
