Once a year, the world’s duty free and travel retail industry meets in Cannes for five days of idea-sharing, business development and networking.
Each time we send 4 of our artics (and drivers), along with a logistics team overseas for a little bit of sunshine… but don’t be fooled into thinking we are giving them a holiday in the sun it is actually a lot of hard work.. or so they would have you believe!!
For well over 6 months leading up to September we prepare, organise and carry out freight organisation work for a collection of prestigious clients who exhibit at the TFWA show in Cannes. And whilst we are there, we are a critical cog in a very busy exhibition machine that stretches across multiple venues, hotels and sub-events. The work doesn’t stop when we return either as we complete inbound freight paperwork and relocating of the goods that are returned. After all that it is nearly time to start again.
So if you are an exhibitor at TFWA then get in touch with us today about 2020.
The TFWA World Exhibition & Conference is the only truly global event for anyone marketing to international travellers. There are nearly 500 exhibitors showcasing over 3000 premium brands including the very latest breakthrough ideas and trends in the industry.
Check out the TFWA showcase here to see some of the goodies on display
It is the ultimate networking opportunity with experts from every aspect of travel retail present as well as a programme of conferences and workshops with world-class speakers where you can catch up on the very latest thinking on today’s industry-relevant issues.
The vehicles have staggered loading days with the first one loading in the UK on the Monday, travelling on the Tuesday and arriving in Cannes on the Wednesday, the second artic loads on the Tuesday and arrives on the Thursday, the third artic loads on the Wednesday and arrives on the Friday, the final artic is loaded on the Friday and to meet its delivery window on the Saturday morning has to be double manned with two drivers so as to legally abide by drivers driving hours and mandatory rest breaks.
