Last month Portland Design together with the influential travel retail blog trunblocked.com launched its inaugural webinar series: Future Airports: From Here to Where?
The remarkable line-up of speakers and panellists from both inside and outside the airport and travel retail industry shared their thoughts on the future of the sector and talk about growing the future asset values of airports.
Hosted by Moderator – Peter Marshall, TRUnblocked, our own Heidi Van Roon was joined by a stellar lineup of stakeholders from different disciplines and experiences surrounding airport and travel retail to discuss Brands and Retail Theatre.
- Stewart Dryburgh, General Manager – Nestlé International Travel Retail
- Jérôme Le Page, Marketing & Business Development Director – JC Decaux
- Moyra Race, Founder – Strategic Buying Consulting Services
- Rory Sutherland, Vice Chairman – Ogilvy UK
- Philip Handley, Executive Creative Director – Circle Square
Lewis Allen, Senior Director, Portland Design describes the group:
There is one common theme running through all the individuals. We think they have got something in their experience, in their vision, in their ideas, that is future-focused. They understand that future, they understand the opportunity for airports and travel retail, and they can suggest the right kind of changes to make revolution happen.
Of course, we have some very well-known people and very talented people from inside the business in our event line-up. But, importantly, there are also some fresh voices from domestic retail contributing to our event who are doing excellent things around the way brands and consumers are behaving now, reacting to those different behaviours and different mind-sets, and coming up with real, actionable solutions.
We are pleased to showcase Session 7: Brands and Retail Theatre – A Bigger or Lesser Choice
