Visitor Registration & Exhibitor Bookings underway for Virtual Summit of the Americas

Registration is now underway for both exhibitors and visitors to the 2021 Summit of the Americas, which will take place in virtual form on April 5-9.

As in the past, the Summit is jointly organized by the International Association of Airport and Duty Free Shops – IAADFS, and South American Duty Free Association ASUTIL. Due to health constraints and travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the event is being held as a “Virtual Experience.”

The Associations have partnered with The Moodie Davitt Report whose inaugural Moodie Davitt Virtual Travel Retail Expo in October 2020 was hugely successful. The Summit of the Americas will build on that winning virtual formula and proven platform, say the organizers.

Special discounted pricing is on offer for Early Bird stand bookings confirmed by Friday, December 18 or booked by members of IAADFS and/or ASUTIL.

The Expo is open to retail management and buyers, managers from across the Americas  and the world. The Expo team will be working intensively in the months before the Summit to ensure maximum attendance by retailers, buyers and airports. Exhibitors will also benefit from intensive pre-Summit marketing, promotions and correspondence.

Registration is free for buyers and operators  – rates for sponsors and exhibitors are highly accessible, say the organizers. For non-exhibiting suppliers, agents, and distributors the delegate fee is US$250.

Exhibitors can choose from three different stand options, which will entail no expensive physical stand construction, operational expense, dismantling, logistics and storage costs. Visitor registration is also open at the official event website, which is now live.
