INTERNATIONAL. Leading food & confectionery company Nestlé has signed up as a Platinum Partner for The Trinity Forum 2023, which takes place in Hong Kong on 25-26 October. The company – a long-time supporter of the event, renews its Platinum sponsorship agreement from 2022.

The Trinity Forum, the world’s most influential airport commercial revenues conference, is co-organised by The Moodie Davitt Report, ACI World and ACI Asia-Pacific. It will be hosted by Airport Authority Hong Kong.

Nestlé International Travel Retail General Manager Stewart Dryburgh said: “Nestlé is delighted to once again be a Platinum Sponsor for the Trinity Forum in 2023 following the success of the event last year. While the industry is getting back on track post-Covid at an impressive rate, there are still many challenges we face to create sustainable long-term growth. Never has it been more important for the Trinity partners (airport, retailer, and brand) to proactively collaborate to create solutions.

“The Trinity Forum provides the industry with the perfect opportunity for this as it has always stood out for its high-level debate, discussion and innovative thinking. For this reason, we see it as a vital conference for our industry and are delighted to be renewing our association and playing a key role in its success.

“At Nestlé we’re strongly committed to building a solid future for travel retail and believe that the wider food category alongside strong regenerative and sustainable values can play an integral role in achieving that goal. We look forward to bringing the Trinity audience up to date with our ambitious – but achievable – mission to make food the number one most purchased category in global travel retail; and there is nowhere better to do that than at The Trinity Forum.”

As reported, the 2023 edition of The Trinity Forum marks the 20th anniversary of the event, first held in London in February 2003. This will be fifth time The Trinity Forum has been held in China and the second in Hong Kong after a highly successful event in 2015.
