MEADFA (The Middle East & Africa Duty Free Association) and TFWA are pleased to announce that they will continue to work together on the annual MEADFA Conference.
The Conference, which is staged usually in November, will continue to be managed by TFWA on behalf of MEADFA. The agreement covers the 2014 MEADFA Conference which will take place in Dubai and also the 2015 event, the venue of which will be communicated at a later stage.
TFWA was chosen after a selection process launched by MEADFA as the existing contract neared its conclusion.
Sean Staunton, President MEADFA: “The Board of MEADFA is delighted to be working with TFWA once again. We are very satisfied with the outcome of this year’s conference and delegate feedback has been extremely positive. Doha proved a great venue and it was fascinating to see behind the scenes at the new airport. We have already had preliminary thoughts about the 2014 MEADFA Conference and, in the meantime, we will continue to represent the industry in the region at a time of very encouraging growth.”
Responding, Erik Juul-Mortensen, President TFWA, said: “On behalf of TFWA may I say that we are proud to be associated with MEADFA and we are very pleased that our strong relationship with the association will continue. This year’s conference in Doha was a success and offered further evidence of the strength of the regional industry. We look forward to next year’s edition in Dubai.”
