Pre-registration opens for 2024 ASUTIL Conference


The event has already secured sponsorship from major operators and providers, including Avolta (formerly known as Dufry), Attenza, Colonia Express, Carilux Duty Free, Avianca, Mondelēz, and JTI.

The 2024 ASUTIL Conference is coming to Bogotá, Colombia on 19th and 20th June and attendees can now secure their spot by pre-registering for the event. Registration will remain open until Friday, 7th June.

Those who secure their spot promptly can take advantage of early bird registration rates, available until Tuesday, 9th April. Regular rates will apply from Wednesday, 10th April onwards. Fully registered delegates can also enjoy special rates at the conference’s hotel venue and will receive a link to book their stay.

The ASUTIL Conference will take place at the Hilton Bogotá Corferias, and building on the success of the 2023 collaboration, will once again be managed by TFWA. Delegates will receive a warm welcome to Bogotá at the Opening Cocktail on the evening of 18th June and there will be more opportunity to relax at what will undoubtedly be another highly enjoyable social activity on 21st June.

Bogotá, the chosen stage for this year, will provide a vibrant backdrop for the duty free and travel retail community to unite, and alongside the business there will be plenty of opportunity to enjoy the beauty and culture of Colombia.

“The ASUTIL Conference was eagerly anticipated and in demand. With TFWA’s management, we succeeded in making Buenos Aires a memorable event, where we confirmed our conviction about its identity and uniqueness. TFWA will once again collaborate with ASUTIL to make Bogotá an even better event. A city that deserves the opportunity to be known for their thriving market and vibrant culture.

We will have a hotel tailored to our networking and socialisation goals, a distinguished list of speakers, and the support of our members and sponsors to make everything unforgettable. We cannot be more excited and enthusiastic.” says Carlos Loaiza-Keel, ASUTIL General Secretary.

“The South American duty free and travel retail market is dynamic, rapidly growing and brimming with potential. We are proud to once again support ASUTIL to champion the ASUTIL Conference in Bogotá. Working alongside the ASUTIL team last year was a terrific experience, and this was reflected in the success of the event. We are really looking forward to reconnecting with friends and colleagues from across South America in Bogotá, as we explore the vast commercial potential of this region once again.” said Erik Juul-Mortensen, TFWA President
