Summer showcase: Travel retail’s hottest campaigns

A global showcase

There have been many other striking activations this summer, and each has shared the goals of generating a buzz and offering a memorable consumer experience.

These images highlight four stellar examples. The first is Lancôme Travel Retail Asia Pacific staging a takeover of prominent retail space within Shinsegae Duty Free’s downtown Myeong-Dong, Seoul store.
