VIETNAM. Travel experience player Avolta has once again lent its support as Diamond Sponsor for The Trinity Forum to be co-hosted by Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV) and Imex Pan Pacific Group (IPPG) on 5-6 November in Ho Chi Minh City.

The Trinity Forum is the world’s leading travel retail and airport commercial revenues conference. It is owned by The Moodie Davitt Report and organised in partnership with Airports Council International (ACI) Asia-Pacific & Middle East and ACI World.

Avolta was formed in 2023 through the business combination of travel retail powerhouse Dufry and the world’s leading travel-related food & beverage player Autogrill.

Avolta’s portfolio now extends to 73 countries and more than 1,000 locations, with over 5,100 points-of-sale across three segments – duty free, F&B and convenience. These are spread across various channels, including airports, motorways, cruises and ferries, railway, border shops and downtown.

Across its estate, Avolta enjoys access to 2.3 billion passengers each year and employs more than 76,000 people.

Avolta CEO Xavier Rossinyol (pictured above in conversation with The Moodie Davitt Report Founder & Chairman Martin Moodie) captivated The Trinity Forum 2023 audience with his compelling views on the future of the travel retail industry

Avolta CEO Xavier Rossinyol (who will address this year’s event) said: “I could tell you how I am proud to be Trinity’s Diamond sponsor for the second year running, but this is only a small part of it. The headline is this: Trinity is an opportunity to revolutionise how we collaborate.

“At Avolta we’re all about win-win-win partnerships that challenge traditional models, putting the traveller front and centre. Join us in discussion with other industry trailblazers at this year’s Trinity Forum. Together, we’ll explore bold ideas and set our industry on course for exceptional heights.”
