IAADFS revises dates for 2023 Summit of the Americas

The International Association of Airport and Duty Free Stores (IAADFS) announced today, July 5, revised dates for the 2023 Summit of the Americas, which will now be held April 16-19, 2023, at the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach, Florida. This is a slight shift from the originally announced dates of April 18-21.

The revised 2023 Summit dates of April 16-19, 2023, return the 2023 Summit to the traditional day pattern from previous years, with the Opening Reception on Sunday, April 16, and with the exhibit booths and private rooms open to attendees on Monday through Wednesday, April 17-19.

“When we originally booked this event with the city of West Palm Beach back in 2019, our preferred Sunday to Wednesday pattern was not available, but we recently were made aware of updated availability,” commented IAADFS President and CEO Michael Payne.  He added, “This shift of dates to our traditional day pattern restores consistency and probably will eliminate confusion for some of the attendees who have been coming to our event for many years and are used to this Sunday to Wednesday pattern.”

The space request process for the 2023 Summit will begin soon, with registration and housing anticipated to open in September.  Press inquiries should be directed to IAADFS President and CEO Michael Payne at +1-202-367-1184 or iaadfs@iaadfs.org
