2017 IAADFS show offers opportunity

The 2017 IAADFS Duty Free Show of the Americas served up plenty of opportunities to work, play and build relationships in Orlando. Nearly 150 companies exhibited on the sold-out show floor this year, with 35 displaying their products for the first time or returning after taking a break from exhibiting.

Gala Evening pays tribute to a leader

As show attendees enjoyed an elegant evening of entertainment and fine dining at this year’s Gala event, they were also given the opportunity to honor an industry leader.

Education sessions offer valuable information for show attendees

Additional educational programming was added to the show’s lineup this year, following the success of the 2016 education sessions. Education is an important aspect of the duty free and travel retail industry’s core strength, and participating panelists shared their expertise with Duty Free show attendees.

Partnering for future opportunity

The 2018 Summit of the Americas will take place March 18-21 at the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando, Florida. IAADFS and ASUTIL will partner to bring together the best of their respective events for the 2018 Summit of the Americas.
