The Power of the Americas

Why attend, exhibit or support the Summit?

The western hemisphere, which encompasses the Americas and the Caribbean, offers tremendous potential for companies operating in the duty free and travel retail marketplace:

  • The region includes 40 countries with a total population of more than 950 million.
  • In 2015, 2.29 billion passengers traveled through airports in the Americas and Caribbean, up 5.3% from 2014.
  • Total sales worldwide in 2016 for duty free and travel retail sales was USD $63.6 billion, of which USD $10.7 billion (17%) was in the Americas and Caribbean.

The countries that make up the Americas and Caribbean are home to an incredibly diverse population with vibrant cultures and unique shopping tastes. What better way to service the duty free and travel retail needs of this population than to participate in the only industry event that specializes in the entire Americas and Caribbean marketplace?
