Duty Calls: In May 2019 a sell-out gathering of more than 300 travel retail guests comes together at Jewel Changi Airport in Singapore (venue for the Gala Dinner at the forthcoming Trinity Forum) to raise around US$265,000 for Southeast Asian children’s charity Friends-International, which helps children who have come from precarious environments, including those abandoned due to sickness or disability.
With the industry coming to a standstill in early 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we take our digital innovation drive to new heights, creating a series of digital events, led by the Virtual Travel Retail Expo, which later won a Frontier Award (for Best Collaboration with agency FILTR.QINGWA, now renamed Purple), repeating the event in 2021.

The Moodie Davitt Report releases a new video podcast series called TRI-POD, in association with The SEVA Group. Each edition features a different guest chatting not just about the travel retail industry but also their own lives, likes and inspirations.
A special awards programme is created to recognise the contribution of front line and back of house staff across the industry, from retail to dining. The Travel Retail Superstars and FAB Superstars Awards resonated across the sector, with the second edition of each taking place in September 2022. Both events will now enjoy a permanent place in the industry calendar.
