Trade Media & Events Managing Director Colin Hall commented: “We are all very excited to launch the new ARC Latin America. Recently we have seen a lot of movement of larger international carriers expanding their routes to Latin America. Latin American and Caribbean air travel was up +7.6% with airlines carrying 240.5 million passengers in 2013. Additionally, a variety of brands and inflight concessionaires have opened offices in the region to better cater to their expanding clientele.”

Hall continued: “This is the right time for us to open up the debate across all sectors of inflight retail industry in Latin America and provide the ARC clientele with the opportunity to expand their business into the booming continent.”

ARC has also launched a new website to bring together its three conferences in one place.
