Hillary Rodham Clinton to headline TFWA World Conference with keynote conversation


TFWA World Conference in Cannes will feature keynote speaker Hillary Clinton discussing global political trends impacting the duty-free and travel retail industry.

TFWA has unveiled the first details of its programme for the 2024 TFWA World Conference, which will take place at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes on the morning of Monday 30th September.

Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will take to the stage for a keynote conversation at this year’s TFWA World Conference.

Secretary Clinton has spent over five decades in public service as an advocate, attorney, First Lady, U.S. Senator, U.S. Secretary of State, and presidential candidate. She will explore the ever-evolving global political landscape and the trends that are impacting the geopolitical environment in which the duty free and travel retail industry operates.

As ever, the conference will begin with an opening address from TFWA President Erik Juul-Mortensen. Broadcaster, journalist and presenter of BBC World’s HARD Talk, Stephen Sackur will return as the moderator of the conference.

“TFWA has always been dedicated to providing a conference programme that features exceptional speakers that bring the most relevant and valuable perspectives to our delegates. This year’s lineup will truly reflect that commitment, and it is an honour to welcome such a distinguished individual to the stage, in this, our 40th anniversary year. We look forward to welcoming the global duty free and travel retail industry to Cannes once again in September, and we’ll be sharing more on what is going to be a very impressive speaker lineup very soon.” says Erik Juul-Mortensen, TFWA President.
