Planning a Product Launch at the Tax Free World Exhibition

Every great product deserves a great product launch and there’s no better place for a successful launch party than Cannes. Celebrating the very best in global creativity, Cannes plays host to some of the most important industry conferences in the world each year including the annual Tax Free World Exhibition.

Held at the Palais des Festivals overlooking the Croisette, the Tax Free World Exhibition is tailored around the duty-free and retail travel sectors. Bringing together over 12,000 professionals each October, this week-long event includes panels, workshops and presentations from key figures within the industry.

The conference addresses the state of the tax free industry with a series of workshops throughout the week dedicated to market analysis. With a strong focus on new technology, Digital Village sessions are also on offer to help you discover new digital solutions and services for your business.

More than just a conference, the Tax Free World Exhibition is a global showcase for premium brands and the ideal place to create outreach when launching a new product. A unique opportunity to network with the biggest names in the industry, Cannes is where you can reach your target audience.

To optimise your product launch, take advantage of the exhibition’s exciting programme of networking events including a dedicated ‘one-to-one’ service which allows you to discuss future business opportunities while building relationships with partners and clients.
