Travel Food Services to host Trinity Forum ‘Indian-Irish After Party’

INDIA. Leading Indian and international food & beverage, retail and airport lounge operator Travel Food Services (TFS) is hosting a special ‘After Party’ at next week’s Trinity Forum in Mumbai.

The fun event is at The Irish House, immediately after Monday night’s Opening Cocktail, and will feature great food, live music and plenty of fun.

The TFS Trinity Forum After Party will take place just five minutes away from the Opening Cocktail venue (the Trident Nariman Point hotel), with buses constantly available between 9.30 and the party’s conclusion.

Despite what promises to be a late night for many delegates the formal proceedings kick off the next morning at 9a.m.

tfs-einvite_afterparty_trinity_2016Once the Forum formally gets under way, delegates – and travel retail executives worldwide – will have the opportunity to ask questions of any of The Trinity Forum panellists, including the morning one Trinity Leaders’ Debate. The latter features Julián Díaz, CEO of the world’s biggest travel retailer, Dufry; Dayalan Nayager, Managing Director of the channel’s number one supplier, Diageo Global Travel; and GV Sanjay Reddy, Vice Chairman of GVK and Managing Director of Mumbai International Airport Ltd, widely considered a visionary of Indian aviation.

Each has agreed to take candid questions from moderator Martin Moodie and the audience (via a live-stream dedicated website) on the future of travel retail.

This year’s Trinity Forum is shaping as one of the most important in the 13-year history of the event, as the industry faces an unprecedented challenge from a surging cross-border e-commerce sector, notably in China.

Trinity Banner August 2016 partnersThe Forum theme, ‘Adding value to the consumer journey in an omni-channel world’, reflects that challenge – but also the opportunity that airports have to enhance the travel experience, through social and digital media and by marrying e-commerce opportunities to a traditional (but highly distinctive) bricks and mortar business.
