This year’s edition of The Trinity Forum – the world’s most influential airport commercial revenues conference – is themed ‘Reimagining the Trinity’s role in a phygital world’.

The event will examine how future-proofed the travel retail sector and its business model are in light of the relentless advance of online competition, enhanced consumer transparency, and lack of data sharing. It will also ask whether the traditional industry Trinity of airports, retailers and brands needs to make room for another stakeholder – airlines.


The Big Data Workshop

How can better sharing and analysis of commercial data transform airport commercial fortunes and those of all sector stakeholders?

The Trinity Debate

Is the airport commercial model still fit for purpose? How can it be modified while still delivering satisfactory returns for stakeholders? What if we started all over again and invented duty free in 2019? What would the sector look like? How would tenders be structured?

Towards a brave new world

World tobacco products giant Philip Morris International (PMI) is leading a consumer revolution, away from traditional ‘combustible’ cigarettes and into a range of reduced-risk products, such as revolutionary ‘heat not burn’ IQOS. How does PMI reimagine airport retail in the future? A pan-industry perspective from a key sector player undergoing profound change.

Changing Airport Perspectives

How are today’s most forward-thinking airports structuring their retail and F&B offers? How are they future-proofing the consumer proposition in the face of rapid demographic challenges and the onslaught of online competition?

The Trinity Challenge

A unique addition to The Trinity Forum. Details to be announced this week.

What are the new shopping and dining frontiers?

What categories and shopping formulas will drive airport retail and F&B in the future?

– The power of three – or the power of four?

Is it time to extend the travel retail ‘Trinity’ to airlines? What does the evolution of onboard ‘marketplaces’ by carriers such as Singapore Airlines, AirAsia and Avianca spell for traditional airport retail? What next for Qatar Airways as a retailer after its decision to suspend traditional inflight sales?

Food & Beverage – the new retail? Airport Advertising – the new consumer engagement driver?

A joint session that examines two burgeoning commercial revenues sectors. How are airports reimagining their food & beverage offers to deliver enhanced customer satisfaction and increased revenues? And what does the digital revolution, when many consumers are looking down at their mobile platforms rather than up towards traditional signage, mean for the airport advertising sector?

Front Line Heroes

A first for The Trinity Forum. This year we are calling for nominations from around the airport retail world for the Trinity Front Line Employee of the Year. In this important session, we profile the finalists and reveal the ultimate choice. More details soon.

Why sustainability must be on every industry conference agenda

Our planet is in danger and airports (and airport commerce) are in the front line of the environmental crisis. How can our industry be part of the solution and not the problem?

Finding a phygital solution to the digital challenge

A powerful close to the 2019 Trinity Forum features a line-up of the most progressive digital thinkers in the airport commercial community. How can humanisation best converge with digitalisation?
