What they said about The Trinity Forum

Here, we present some of the best of the reaction to what was a dynamic, dramatic and enlightening event in Doha.

And some more comments from delegates:

“Kevin Roche was a special highlight. It is always good to look out of the industry at surrounding trends. There were several very good speakers and interesting content – including the very candid content from His Excellency Akbar Al Baker.”

“High-quality and engaging speakers throughout, especially the session featuring Pernod Ricard’s Mohit Lal and CDFG’s Charles Chen.”

“My first Trinity; it exceeded expectations. The events outside of the presentations were just as good as the formal part.”

“It was incredible to hear His Excellency Akbar Al Baker’s thoughts and opinion on the challenges Qatar faces, while Nestlé International Travel Retail General Manager Stewart offered arguably the strongest and most critical comments during The Trinity Forum.”
