China Travel Retail 2013 (CTR2013) organisers have announced the agenda for this year’s event taking place in Sanya, Hainan Province from May 8-9. The event will involve a two-day conference, including more than 10 hours of networking events and one-to-one speed networking meetings. A networking dinner will also take place on the first night.
The event, to be moderated by The Moodie Report, founder and chairman Martin Moodie will address several challenges and opportunities facing the Chinese travel-retail market. UN Tourism Organisation executive director Frederic Pierret; Sorbonne professor, Chine de Luxe author and Louis Vuitton intelligence director Jacqueline Tsai; Design Solution managing director Robbie Gill; Edge Design Institute managing director Gary Chang; and Tourvest CEO travel-retail Eric de Jager are among the speakers and will be joined by others from airlines, travel-retail operators and tourism bodies within China.
CTR event director Alex Vail said: “Last year in Shanghai we addressed some of the biggest issues affecting western companies looking to expand into the Chinese market as well as the challenges facing airport and retail operators across China. This year’s event in Sanya, the most exciting duty-free location in China right now, looks even stronger and will undoubtedly help to define the future of the industry in such a vibrant market.
“Feedback from last year’s event was fantastic, enabling us to look more deeply into the needs of our delegates and the challenges they face in the burgeoning travel-retail industry in China. The agenda we have created will address the urgent need for insight and best practice in a country which is rapidly building 70 new airports and creating a 40,000km high-speed railway network. We look forward to continuing to help Chinese and western brands, airport and retail operators navigate their way to lasting success in the ever expanding Chinese travel-retail market.”
Over 190 delegates attended CTR2012, of which 70% of which were from mainland China. More than 200 delegates are expected to be present in Sanya.
