Duty Free & Travel Retailing Magazine Presents:


In the 1990s, our Publisher, Aijaz Khan, recognized that three regions – Americas, Gulf-Africa and Asia – were the emerging markets in global travel retail, and time has proven him correct. During that period,
Duty Free & Travel Retailing magazines presented “Merit of Distinction Awards” in each of these three regions. And now we are bringing
these awards back, as the Duty Free Readers’ Choice Awards.

Our readers will have the chance to vote online for their favorite suppliers and retailers in six different categories. Winners and runners-up will be announced in July 2019.
Readers will vote for the best company in six different categories for each of the three regions: the Americas; Middle East and Africa; and Asia.
  1. Best Perfumes & Cosmetics Supplier
  2. Best Confectionery & Fine Foods Supplier
  3. Best Spirits & Tobacco Supplier
  4. Best Jewelry, Watches, Handbags & Accessories Supplier
  5. Best Airport Retailer
  6. Best Border Store, Downtown & Non-Airport Retailer
Winners will be awarded a certificate along with ample coverage
in our publications and digital platforms, to celebrate their achievements.
March 2019 – Voting opens for readers
31st May 2019 – Voting closes
July 2019 – Winners announced

Don’t forget: Your input can help shape the future of the industry by recognizing the best and brightest in the business – and if your company falls into one of these categories, encourage your colleagues to vote too.
