The ‘Trinity Forum 2019’, the world’s most influential airport commercial revenues conference, will be held next year in Doha for the first time, it was announced in a statement on Monday.
The conference, organised by The Moodie Davitt Report, ACI World, and ACI Asia-Pacific, will be hosted by Hamad International Airport (HIA), Qatar Airways, and Qatar Duty Free (QDF) from October 30 to 31.
Qatar Airways Group chief executive Akbar al-Baker and The Moodie Davitt Report founder and chairman Martin Moodie signed the partnership agreement for the event in the presence of HIA chief operating officer Badr Mohamed al-Meer, and Qatar Duty Free vice president operations Thabet Musleh.
Al-Baker said, “We are delighted to be bringing the Trinity Forum to Qatar for the very first time. This important event will bring the industry’s key leaders, retailers and brands from around the world to Doha, to not only improve and build on the dialogue between airports, concessionaires, and brands to benefit passengers, but also to showcase our world-class airline, airport and duty free offering to conference delegates. We look forward to extending Qatar’s warm hospitality and culture to all guests at next year’s event.”
Al-Meer said, “We are proud to collaborate with The Moodie Report, ACI World, and ACI Asia Pacific in hosting the Trinity Forum in Qatar for the first time. As we gear up for what is set to be an exciting future for the industry in the region, we look forward to sharing our expertise and working with all those involved to usher in a new era of opportunities that redefine the airport and travel experience.”
Musleh said, “Hosting the Trinity Forum in Qatar for the first time reflects our ongoing commitment to retail innovation and excellence. At Qatar Duty Free, we work hard to enhance the passenger experience in everything that we do, and work closely with all our brands and partners to continuously innovate to create lasting and memorable experiences.
“Hosting an event of this calibre in Doha aligns perfectly with our vision at Qatar Duty Free, and we are delighted to be partnering with The Moodie Davitt Report, ACI World, and ACI Asia-Pacific to bring the industry’s leaders to Doha for this world-class forum.”
Moodie said, “We are delighted to bring the Trinity Forum, the world’s most influential airport commercial revenues conference, to the Middle East region and, in particular, to Qatar, a shining example of the pursuit of airport retail and commercial excellence.
“Hamad International Airport is one of the world’s great airports, and Qatar Airways is one of modern aviation’s most extraordinary success stories. We are proud to partner with such outstanding organisations and with Qatar Duty Free, which so epitomises our industry’s drive for retail and consumer service excellence.”
He added: “Our hosts for next year’s Trinity Forum, Hamad International Airport, Qatar Airways, and Qatar Duty Free, have constantly pushed the boundaries of retail excellence, innovation, and customer service.
