ABOUT THE EVENT
The Trinity Forum, the world’s most influential airport commercial revenues conference, will be held in Doha in 2019, the first time the event has ever been hosted in Qatar.
The Forum, a joint venture between The Moodie Davitt Report, ACI World and ACI Asia-Pacific, will be hosted by Hamad International Airport (HIA), Qatar Airways and Qatar Duty Free (QDF) and will take place in Doha on 30-31 October 2019. This is also the first time in the event’s 16-year history that an airline has joined the hosting line-up.
The Trinity Forum aims to improve dialogue and mutual understanding between airports, concessionaires and brands to the benefit of that critical fourth party – the travelling consumer.
Martin Moodie said: “We are delighted to bring The Trinity Forum, the world’s most influential airport commercial revenues conference, to the Middle East region and, in particular, to Qatar, a shining example of the pursuit of airport retail and commercial excellence. Hamad International Airport is one of the world’s great airports, and Qatar Airways is one of modern aviation’s most extraordinary success stories. We are proud to partner with such outstanding organisations and with Qatar Duty Free, which so epitomises our industry’s drive for retail and consumer service excellence.
“Since its launch in 2003, The Trinity Forum has grown from strength to strength with each edition. The most recent event, held in Shanghai, saw record attendance and was testimony to the importance all sectors of the industry place on the need for a Forum which champions collaboration, innovation and excellence, debates key issues and questions industry shortcomings.
“We have exciting plans to grow the event in 2019, including an extended focus on food & beverage, as well as the changing face of airport retail and other consumer services.
“Our hosts for next year’s Trinity Forum, Hamad International Airport, Qatar Airways and Qatar Duty Free, have constantly pushed the boundaries of retail excellence, innovation and customer service. We look forward to working closely with our hosts and co-organisers, ACI World and ACI Asia-Pacific, on The Trinity Forum 2019, which will once again bring together industry leaders, positive disruptors and thought leaders from across the globe.”
