The MEADFA Conference will be held under the patronage of H.E. Mr. Saad Hariri, Lebanese President of the Council of Ministers.
The support of H.E Mr Hariri was confirmed at a press conference held in Beirut on 12th September, hosted by MEADFA President Haitham Al Majali and H.E. Mr Avedis Guidanian, the Lebanese Minister of Tourism.
In order to widen the Association’s scope and enable it to better represent the interest of the Duty Free and Travel Retail industry, the MEADFA board introduces “affiliated membership” as a new membership category.
Despite tougher trading conditions across many parts of the Middle East and Africa, there was a strong turnout for the 2018 MEADFA Conference. Nearly 500 industry professionals met in Dubai for the event.
